    mate emailed me this and it's so true:


    Subject: Chapters of our Life

    This is very beautiful,

    take the time to read....


    A Birth Certificate shows that we were born
    A Death Certificate shows that we died
    Pictures show that we live!
    Have a seat. Relax . . .
    And read this slowly.

    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 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.

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