I Believe

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 - God never gives you more than you can handle.

I believe - You should work hard but play harder.
I believe - You get what you give.
I believe - What goes around comes around.
I believe - that everyone that can should own a dog - they truly are a person's best friend.

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.

  1. since I've only been following your journal for a little bit and I'm not sure what your beliefs are, I'll totally understand if you don't use my beliefs or if you delete this comment.

    I believe Jesus is the Son of God and the only way to get to heaven by believing He died for your sins and asking Him to be your Lord and Savior.

    I believe without Jesus in my life I could never have gone through the things that have happened to me and my family these past 8 years.

    I believe Jesus is my only hope.

    thanks; this was fun to read the other beliefs in the email sent by your friend
