A Haven for Vee

For Tuesday

I Believe

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, she's going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive her 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 a 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 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 regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades and there had better be something else to take its place.

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 just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

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 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.

I believe that you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.

I believe that 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.

And I believe in true friendship, for I believe in you!

  2. I believe I am going to print that out and stick it on my fridge....
    LOL Thanks for sharing Vee! Great post!

  3. Hmmm, we are on line and blogging, at the same time. Kind of scary, isn't it? -giggles-

    Very wise words contained in this piece. I've seen it before. But who couldn't use, reading it again?


  4. There's a couple in there that I needed to hear today, and one in particular that I've needed to hear for awhile. Thanks Vee.

    - Suzanne, the Farmer's Wife

  9. G'day from Australia,

    I believe posts like this remind us of the essence of life.

  10. I especially liked the words about friendships. I'm going to visit an old friend next week. We can go years without contact but once we're together, it is like we're still in first grade together.

  11. I believe I keep coming back to see you for this very reason! You are uplifting

  12. That's lovely. Is it original or did you find it somewhere?
    If you wrote it I'm doubly impressed!

  13. No, darlings, this is not an original piece. The source is provided at the end. Glad that so many of you liked it. I'm thinking of printing it out and putting it in my inspiration journal with those that really nail me highlighted.

    David, I think that this is a first. A man commenting at my blog! A man from Australia, too. Very nice and thank you for your comment.

  14. This is so beautiful and I couldn't believe how often I could relate to the words.
    I agree with Judy, it would be so good to memorize.

  15. Wonderful, Vee! Really beautiful words. I am going to print this and keep it in my Bible. Thanks!


If comments disappear, please don't fret. A simple "hi" will do. The platform surely needs some maintenance.
