What a beautiful day! I love this city!

What a beautiful day! I love this city!

"You gain strength, courage and confidence by
every experience by which you really stop to
look fear in the face. You are able to say to
yourself, “I lived through this horror. I can
take the next thing that comes along.”

Eleanor Roosevelt

My beliefs from 2007
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 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 your life can be changed in a matter of hours 
by people who don’t even know you. 

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 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
