I already posted this on Facebook, but it really spoke to me....so I'm putting it on my blog too.

Things you should believe

A Birth Certificate shows we were born

A Death Certificate shows we died

Pictures show we lived!

Have a seat...Relax. ..And read this slowly.

I Believe...
Just because two people argue,
Doesn't mean they don't love each other.
And just because they don't argue,
Doesn't mean they do love each other.

I Believe...
We don't have to change friends if
We understand friends change.

I Believe.....
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...
True friendship continues to grow, even over
The longest distance. Same goes for true love.

I Believe...
You can do something in an instant
That will give you heartache for life.

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

I Believe...
You should always leave loved ones with
Loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

I Believe....
You can keep going long after you think you can't.

I Believe...
We are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

I Believe...
Either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I Believe...
Heroes are the people who do what has to be done
When it needs to be done, regardless

I Believe...
Money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I Believe...
My best friend and I can do anything or nothing
And have the best time.

I Believe...
Sometimes the people you expect to kick you
When you're down will be the ones to help you get back up.

I Believe....
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....
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....
It isn't always enough to be forgiven by others;
Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself..

I Believe...
No matter how bad your heart is broken,
The world doesn't stop for your grief.

I Believe...
Our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are,
But we are responsible for who we become.

I Believe...
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...
Your life can be changed in a matter of
Hours by people who don't even know you.

I Believe....
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...
Credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

I Believe....
The people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.

I Believe.....
You should send this to all of the people you believe in, I just did.

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

(My Mom shared this with me through an email....it spoke to me, so now I'm sharing it with you)


A New Year...A New Post

I admit that I've not been very good at this blogging thing. Lots of things I would like to write about somedays but feel I need to edit myself (no Mom I'm not talking about you). Other days I'm just too damn lazy.

It's a New Year!!! First off, to those of you reading this Happy New Year. I hope it's filled with more happy days than sad. We had a wonderful Christmas Holiday here at Casa W. We were able to celebrate it with both Mothers. Overall it was a perfect holiday. My only regret was that we didn't get to spend any time with friends. Some were too far away and again that lazy thing set in and we didn't want to leave the couch.

I made a New Year's Resolution to try to be more positive this year. Open up and let that positive energy in! It seems that I've been drowning a little the last few years. I've finally resurfaced and am hopeful. Funny as you make a decision like this that right around the corner negativity wants to return. I had a falling out with one of my best friends about 5 years ago. We've never spoken since, but not for lack of trying. I received a nice note during the holidays from this "friend". Can you say shocked?! Oddly, I've decided not to respond. The old Lynn would certainly have answered....mostly because she was a bit of a people pleaser. But the new and improved Lynn said...nope...all this negative energy needs to go. I don't want to open that door again. I'm finally over the hurt that it caused my family and I.

So cheers to you my friends. I hope your year is filled with positive energy as well.
