that we don’t have to change friends
if we understand that friends change.
that true friendship continues to grow,
even over the longest distance.
same goes for true love.
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 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 money is a lousy way of keeping score.
that my best friend and I can do anything
or nothing and have best time.
that maturity has more to do with
what types of experiences you’ve had
and what you’ve learnt from them
and less to do with how many
birthdays you’ve celebrated.
that is isn’t always enough to be
forgiven by others. Sometimes you
have to learn to forgive yourself.
no matter how bad 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 two people can look at the exact
same thing and see something totally
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.
