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 that they have.

That our backgrounds and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

That no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and that if they're worth it, you should forgive them for it.

That it's going to take a long time to be the person I want to be.

That you should always leave loved ones with loving words, it may be the last chance yoy ever get to see them again.

That either you control your attitude or your attitude controls you.

That money is a stupid way to keep score.

That sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry - but not the right to be cruel.

That you should always leave extra change in vending machines.

That it isn't enough to be forgiven by others, sometimes you have to forgive yourself.

That no matter how bad your heart is broken, the world doesn't stop for your grief.

That the people you care most about are taken from you much too soon.

That you should be who you know you are without regret, explanation, apology, or reserve.

That having a good life is more precious than money will ever be able to be.

That you don't show people you love them nearly enough.

Have you considered writing an essay for NPR's "This I Believe"?

I believe you are right, and that you are as wonderful as you are wise.

Thank you for posting that.
