That we don't have to change friends if
We understand that friends change.
That true friendship continues to grow,
even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love.
That you can do something in an instant
That will give you heartache for life.
That it's taking me a long time
To become the person I want to be.
That you should always leave loved ones
with Loving words.
It may be the last time you see them.
That you can keep going long
after you think you can't.
That we are responsible for what
We do, no matter how we feel.
That either you control your attitude
or it controls you.
That heroes are the people
who do what has to be done,
when it needs to be done,
regardless of the consequences.
That my best friend and I
can do anything or nothing
and have the best time.
That sometimes the people you expect
to kick you when you're down will be
the ones to help you get back up.
That sometimes, when I'm angry,
I have the right to be angry, but that
doesn't give me the right to be cruel.
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.
That it isn't always enough
to be forgiven by others.
Sometimes you have to learn
to forgive yourself.
That no matter how bad
your heart is broken,
the world doesn't stop for your grief.
That our background and circumstances
may have influenced who we are, but,
we are responsible for who we become.
That you shouldn't be
so eager to find out a secret.
It could change your life forever.
Two people can look at the exact same thing
And see something totally different.
That your life can be changed
in a matter of hours
by people who don't even know you.
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.
That credentials on the wall
do not make you a decent human being.
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.
I believe ...
Wealth is acquired by what you give away....not what you take.
I Believe this Earth walk is the most difficult journey our Spirit can enter into.
Dreams make things happen.
I've noticed the heroes and angels in my life had not just allowed but encouraged me to be myself. I can count them on one hand.
Maybe you can assist here:
As elements of Christianity or a combination of Christianity and traditional Native American/ indigenous beliefs appeared, What would be the correct word for angels ? Or free spirit in the term of an angel? Among the many native languages, I find little reference :(
This is beautiful! Each belief so True!
-Who wrote this?
I see awesome comments too, but did you write this?
I didn't write this. Probably one person took a bunch of quotes and assembled them in one spot...kinda like I did with my blogs 'Hope' and 'More Hope'. Those are inspirational sayings I heard during my stay in a shelter for abused women.
Thank you Ms. Down-to-Earth for these inspiring words from your heart and experience. I think I related to just about all of them.
Thank you. This clears a lot of the fog in my head.
I'm 65 years old had many changes in my attitudes over the last two years. I had a stroke and I'm in a wheelchair. Many of my best friends have died off now. My brother died two years ago of cancer so I'm the last living person in my family. However, I married to a good wife for 32 years and we are very happy together.I have faith that walk again and that I'll meet new friends.
So True! Even when there are so many demands on our time.
