A friend recently sent me an email and the title was "I Believe".
I thought it would be interesting to email all my friends and ask them to send me what they believe and incorporate both; a few from the email and all of my friends beliefs. I told them I would keep their thoughts anonymous........so here goes:
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 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.
I believe - That you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.
I believe - That you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.
I believe - If a person is cruel and mistreats animals, they will also mistreat humans.
I believe - The state of joy enables you to stop worrying.
I believe - You should set goals and commit yourself to them.
I believe - People interpret words and actions differently. We may look at the same picture and see different things.
I believe - If your attitude is in the toilet, you have no chance for success and happiness.
I believe - That you can keep going long after you think you can't.
I believe - That we should all be responsible for our actions.
I believe - That either you control your attitude or it controls you.
I believe - That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down will surprise you because they will be the ones to help you get back up.
I believe - I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.
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 - 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.
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 people don't necessarily have the
best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have.
I believe - You should be a good provider for your family.
I believe - We should do something nice for a total stranger every day.
I believe - One of the most powerful personal development tool is simply to keep a personal journal.
What do you believe?
Thank you to all my family and friends for participating.
