I Believe...

I received this in an email today, and thought it had the most beautiful message, so I decided to share it with all of you...

A Birth Certificate shows that we were born
A Death Certificate shows that we died
Pictures show that we lived!

Have a seat .. Relax . . .
And read this slowly...
I Believe....
That just because two people argue,

It doesn't mean they don't love each other.

And just because they don't argue,

It doesn't mean they do love each other.


I Believe...
That we don't have to change friends if

We understand that friends change.


I Believe....
That no matter how good a friend is,

they're going to hurt you every once in a while

and you must forgive them for that.


I Believe...
That true friendship continues to grow,

even over the longest distance.

Same goes for true love.


I Believe...

That you can do something in an instant

That will give you heartache for life.


I Believe....
That it's taking me a long time

To become the person I want to be.


I Believe...

That you should always leave loved ones with
Loving words.
It may be the last time you see them.


I Believe....
That you can keep going
long after you think you can't.


I Believe....

That we are responsible for what
We do,
no matter how we feel.


I Believe...

That either you control your attitude
or it controls you.


I Believe...

That heroes are the people

who do what has to be done
when it needs to be done,
regardless of the consequences.


I Believe....

That my best friend and I

can do anything or nothing

and have the best time.

I Believe....

That sometimes the people you expect
to kick you when you're down
will be the ones to help you get back up.


I Believe...
That sometimes when I'm angry

I have the right to be angry,

But that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.


I Believe....

That maturity has more to do with
what types of experiences you've had
And what you've learned from them
and less to do with how many
birthdays you've celebrated.

I Believe....

That it isn't always enough, to be forgiven by others.
Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.


I Believe...

That no matter how bad your heart is broken

the world doesn't stop for your grief.


I Believe....
That our background and circumstances

may have influenced who we are,

But, we are responsible for who we become.


I Believe...
That you shouldn't be so eager
to find
out a secret.
It could change your life Forever.

I Believe....
Two people can look at the exact same
thing
and see something totally different.


I Believe...
That your life can be changed
in a matter of
Hours by people
who don't even know you.


I Believe....
That even when you think you have no more to give,

When a friend cries out to you -

you will find the strength to help.


I Believe...
That credentials on the wall

do not make you a decent human being.


I Believe...

That the people you care about most in life

are taken from you too soon.


'The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything;
They just make the most of everything they have.

'Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass --
it's about learning how to dance in the rain.'
