      Don't Ever Doubt Yourself by Janet A. Sullivan  

      You have so much too offer,
      so to give, and so much
      you deserve to receive and return.
      Don’t ever doubt that
      keep yourself and all of your fine
      rejoice in all of your marvelous strengths
      of mind and body.
      Be glad for the virtues that are yours,
      and pat yourself on the back for all
      your many admirable achievements.

      Keep positive.
      Concentrate on which
      makes you happy,
      and build yourself up.
      Stay nimble of heart,
      happy of thought,
      healthy of mind, and
      well in being.

        • I Believe  

          I Believe...
          That 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...
          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 we don't have to change friends if
          we understand that friends change.  

          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 true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance.
          Same goes for true love.  

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

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

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

          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 heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.  

          I Believe...
          That money is a lousy way of keeping score.  

          I Believe...
          That my best friend and I can do anything, or nothing, and have the best time.  

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

          I Believe...
          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.  

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

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

          I Believe...
          That even when you think you have no more to give, if
          a friend cries out to will find the strength to help.  

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

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

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

          Thank you God for all the wonderful people who help us throughout the journey of life..
