This is what last week taught me

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 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 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.



I Believe...
That the delete button is every bit as important as spell check.


I Believe...
The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything ...

Is that your original or did you get it somewhere? It makes a lot of sense. I like the third one from the last best. . .

Lots to ponder here. I think I may use some of these as writing prompts. I want to find out what some of my students have to say about these words of wisdom. I don't know if teens (even--or maybe especially--my pregnant ones) have the maturity to understand.
