So I took this from a friend and thought it was really appropriate. I added my own thoughts in
*Things you should believe*
A Birth Certificate shows that we were born
A Death Certificate shows that we died
Pictures show that we lived! (so everyone just smile when I pull out the camera...haha)
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 can't agree with this more...sometimes I think the fights show how much we really do care for one another)
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.(some of my best friends live entirely to far away....and distance...well I got that thing down)
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 truly believe this. I believe our troops...do what has to be done...regardless of how the rest of the country sees them.. and they are true heroes)
I Believe...That money is a lousy way of keeping score.
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 dowith 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 findout 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...'The happiest of people don't necessarily havethe best of everything;they just make the most of everything.'
