I Believe…

A Birth Certificate shows that we were born,

A Death Certificate shows that we died,

Pictures show that we lived!

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.
