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.

That we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

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.

That true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.

That you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.

That it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

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

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

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

That either you control your attitude or it controls you.

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

That my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.

  5. Wonderful statements. I believe that it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be and I still believe that I'm growing & learning each day. I believe that this will continue until the day that I die.
    Have a gorgeous Thursday Sandee. See ya.

  7. Wonderful thoughts that we all need to be reminded of from time to time. But when I first started reading them I must confess I wasn't fully awake and I kept looking for the punchline I've come to expect here. LOL

  8. We're responsible for what we do? Not in today's world. There's always a scapegoat that made one do it.

  13. Well put! I always wondered about that old theory that if you don't fight, your relationship isn't good because you aren't communicating and you just don't care. That isn't true at all...relationships are much more complicated than that.

  20. There are some wonderful pearls of wisdom here. We should indeed leave loved ones with loving words, because no one knows if we will visit again. Yes, we are responsible for our actions...this is something that our current world seems to have a problem grasping. Thanks for sharing these with us.

  23. I love this one: "That you should always leave loved ones with Loving words. It may be the last time you see them.” I had just read this verse earlier today: "Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones." Proverbs 16:24
