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.

That we don’t have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

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.

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.

    I believe……….these are all good truisms. Great fodder for thoughts.

    Yes. And you can't help people who don't want to be helped.

    • April 9, 2015 at 12:22 pm

      This is very true and there are so many that don't want any help. πŸ™‚

    Oh those are such great sayings. I especially like the last one. That is so so true. But they are all really good. Sandee, you have a wonderful day along with Zane and Little Bit.

    Wonderful statements. I believe that it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be and I still believe that I'm growing & learning each day. I believe that this will continue until the day that I die.
    Have a gorgeous Thursday Sandee. See ya.

    Wonderful thoughts that we all need to be reminded of from time to time. But when I first started reading them I must confess I wasn't fully awake and I kept looking for the punchline I've come to expect here. LOL

    • April 9, 2015 at 12:24 pm

      Sometimes I get serious, but not very often. πŸ™‚

  8. April 9, 2015 at 7:42 am

    We're responsible for what we do? Not in today's world. There's always a scapegoat that made one do it.

    • April 9, 2015 at 12:24 pm

      Well you and I are responsible for what we do and accept the consequences. Many don't anymore. πŸ™‚

  9. April 9, 2015 at 8:23 am

    I think these truisms are true LOL, I agree with the above comment too

    Have a tanfastic day Sandee :-H

    You know……I think I'll print this post off and carry it around with me. Some frank and honest lines there!

    • April 9, 2015 at 12:25 pm

      Words to live by indeed. Sometimes we just need reminded. πŸ™‚

  11. April 9, 2015 at 10:35 am

    Wise words.

    • April 9, 2015 at 12:26 pm

      Very wise words. πŸ™‚

    • April 9, 2015 at 12:26 pm

      One of my blogging buddies sent this to me and I just had to post it. Have a super duper day too. πŸ™‚

  13. April 9, 2015 at 12:34 pm

    that was great and so true

    • April 9, 2015 at 3:34 pm

      I think you sent these to me Louise. I'm pretty sure you did. πŸ™‚

  14. April 9, 2015 at 1:28 pm

    Well put! I always wondered about that old theory that if you don't fight, your relationship isn't good because you aren't communicating and you just don't care. That isn't true at all…relationships are much more complicated than that.

    • April 9, 2015 at 3:35 pm

      Yes, relationships are far more complicated than that. πŸ™‚

  15. April 9, 2015 at 1:38 pm

    I love these!

    Hope you're having a wonderful day Sandee! Smooches to Little Bit!

    • April 9, 2015 at 3:35 pm

      We're on our boat for a long weekend. Life is good. Scritches to the babies. πŸ™‚

  16. April 9, 2015 at 1:53 pm

    I agree with all of these. Hope you had a great day

    • April 9, 2015 at 3:35 pm

      I loved them all too. The other half will post on Saturday. πŸ™‚

  17. April 9, 2015 at 1:55 pm

    Wonderful beliefs and very useful advice as well. Life is wonderful, painful, messy and the greatest teacher. So are friends like you who share their lessons learned. Have a great day!

    • April 9, 2015 at 3:38 pm

      Thanks Jen. You just made my day with your comment. πŸ™‚

    Two ring so true for me… "You can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for a lifetime.." So true..And that you should always leave loved ones with loving words.. Now I'm a lit'l weepy with my memories.. :/

    • April 9, 2015 at 3:39 pm

      These are so simple yet so very true. πŸ™‚

      He's a pistol isn't he. Bless his heart. πŸ™‚

  21. April 9, 2015 at 8:11 pm

    There are some wonderful pearls of wisdom here. We should indeed leave loved ones with loving words, because no one knows if we will visit again. Yes, we are responsible for our actions…this is something that our current world seems to have a problem grasping. Thanks for sharing these with us.

    • April 10, 2015 at 8:24 am

      Hubby and I always tell each other we love each other when we part company. Always. We never know if we'll see each other again. πŸ™‚

  22. April 9, 2015 at 8:14 pm

    these are some incredibly important reminders and I thank you for sharing!! They were particularly needed for me today! xoxo

    • April 10, 2015 at 8:25 am

      I'm glad I chose the right day for this post. The other half will post tomorrow. πŸ™‚

  23. April 9, 2015 at 9:27 pm

    Those are all so true! And the older you get the more you see that truth.

    • April 10, 2015 at 8:25 am

      With age comes wisdom my friend. Scritches to the puppies. πŸ™‚

  24. April 10, 2015 at 9:54 am

    I love this one: "That you should always leave loved ones with Loving words. It may be the last time you see them.” I had just read this verse earlier today: "Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones." Proverbs 16:24

  25. April 10, 2015 at 7:03 pm

    Those are some good ones.
