I BELIEVE


A friend sent this to me. The author is unknown, but I think it is a wonderful way to greet the New Year.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

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

 I Believe...
That you should send this to
all of the people that matter to you
 
'The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything;
They just make the most of everything they have.'
