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 badly 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.

oh my goodness… the ones on forgiveness and secrets! YES and YES.
Have a perfectly marvelous day, Sandee! And me, too. big hugs xoxo
Yes indeed Barb. Such pearls of wisdom. 🙂
Most of these are so true and makes you think 5-p
Have a thinktastic day Sandee :-h
They sure do make you think Steve. 🙂
Those are such great 'I believe' sayings. And they are all so true. Sandee, you and Zane and the Little Bit have a great day.
They are very true indeed Marg. Scritches to all the babies. 🙂
More wonderful I believes. Although I would expand on one, that life can be changed in a matter of seconds.
That is very true Rhonda. It sure can. For the good or not. 🙂
" That credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being." Boy are you correct on that one. and I know of one particular person who thinks she is so advanced over everybody. I wonder why they think that way? Oh well, as far as I'm concerned, they are useless.
Have a wonderful, & enjoyable weekend and have a fun Saturday Sandee. See ya.
Sometimes those with the credentials are not worth your time. I know some too Paul. 🙂
And success is not a measure of what others think about you, but what you think of yourself.
What others think of me is none of my business. Spot on Joe. 🙂
lovely post. i would add do not compare your reality to someone else's facade. you only see what they allow you to see. roche' says he'd like to add he likes to shop. i asked him what that had to do with this post and he said he just wanted you to know that.
I know some people like that. Some worry about everything and have to be perfect and they aren't.
Roche is a pistol. 🙂
I finally get it! The "I Believe…" columns are words of wisdom and different from the other days when you post humor. Duh, I can be dense sometimes but in my defense I read blogs while in the morning when I'm not fully awake.
These "I believes" are all so true but for some reason a lot of people have trouble understanding that.
I don't do much serious here. Sometimes I just can't pass up things like these words of wisdom. 🙂
Oh if only those who NEED to see these would see these pearls of wisdom! Lovely reminders for us all.
Happy Saturday to you and yours. Big hugs, honey…
But would they get it if they did? That's the sad part, probably not. 🙂
Well experienced statements from worldly-wise and matured hearts… I was moved by the last statement about most loved ones!
Have a great day!
Yes indeed. Words to live by. 🙂
These are brilliant- AND YOU ARE BRILLIANT FOR POSTING THEM! Thanks and have a super day! BIG HUGS
Thank you Kathe. A friend sent them and I've been reading and re-reading them. 🙂
Yes, to all of these. And those we love, we can never have them long enough, ever.
I've lost so many. Too many. 🙂
I'm working on the forgiveness one. I've learned that over the years. I feel guilty for anyone I've ever hurt and I realize that they've likely moved on…I'm the one who hasn't forgiven me!
We have all had our crosses to bear. All of us. There are things all of us would like to change or do. 🙂
All so very true and several make you stop and take a look at yourself. Love these
Yep, that's the point. Taking a look at ourselves. 🙂
I believe that is so true and I have a lot of changing to do
All of us can try to do better Louise. All of us. 🙂
There's a lot of truth in this list right here. 🙂 Have a fun rest of the weekend!
Yes there is Rose, a ton of truth. 🙂
love all of these quotes. Sadly, the last one applies to my having lost two former co-workers last week. Have a great week!
Two in one week? I'm so sorry Caren. 🙁
The seeing things differently fits me and my pet rock: when I see a pizza, Seymour sees a future leftover that might attack him. I never should have let Seymour watch The Outer Limits…
Seymour does whatever he wants. We both know that. You can try to stop him, but it's futile. 🙂
So much truth in all of these Sandee
There are indeed Tony. 🙂
Some of those are too true.
Yes they are Binky, yes they are. 🙂
so true…..i totally believe it too…… 🙂
They sure are so true. 🙂
