I Believe...Part II

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 just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

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 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.

I believe—
that you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.

I believe—
that 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.

  5. These statements should be issued with every birth certificate. These values certainly aren't taught enough.

    You and Zane are two valued friends.

    Big hugs to you both, honey...

  6. I believe this is all true, and one of the reasons I don't hang accomplishments on my wall at work as many others do.

  12. So lovely and wise. If every person in the world thought this way, the world would be a magnificent place. It ain't so bad right now. But there would be less bullshit spread around and less produce. Not that there's anything wrong with produce.

    Happy Hubby's Day.
