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.
Life ends when you stop dreaming,
Hope ends when you stop believing,
Love ends when you stop caring; and,
Friendship ends when you stop sharing …
To believe is to find the strength and courage that lies within us
when it is time to pick up the pieces and begin again.
To believe is to know that we are not alone,
that life is a gift and this is the time to cherish it.
To believe is to know that wonderful things can still happen,
and all our hopes and dreams are within reach.
If we don't give up,
If we just believe.
