Say after me: I BELIEVE... Friday October 23, 2015

I came across this again recently, after all the great conversations about personal responsibility - to sit, settle or soar...

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

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 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 it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

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 money is a lousy way of keeping score.

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 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 two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different... including Moodscope blogs :-)

I believe...
That even when you think you have no more to give, when someone cries out to you, you will find the strength to help.

So, what do you believe that will make your world a better place, and are you going to do it?
