I Believe…




I Believe… That Just because two people argue, that doesn’t mean they don’t love each other. And just because they don’t argue, that doesn’t mean they do love each other.

I Believe… That sometimes when I’m angry, I have right to be angry, but that doesn’t give me the right to be cruel.

I Believe… that sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you are 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’ve 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… 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 you.. you 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.

How Do You Balance Your Life?

Juggling Balls



How do you balance your life?

Brian Dyson, former President and CEO of Coca-Cola Enterprises gave an inspiring and memorable speech on how to achieve this in his Commencement Address on September 6, 1996 at Georgia Tech, one of the oldest and most respected universities in the United States.

Here is what he said:

“Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them – work, family, health, friends and spirit… and you’re keeping all of these in the air,.

You’ll soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls – family, health, friends and spirit – are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for Balance in your life.


Don’t undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. It is because we are different that each of us is special.

Don’t set your goals by what other people deem important. Only you know what is best for you.

Don’t take for granted the things closest to your heart. Cling to them as you would your life, for without them, life is meaningless.

Don’t let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past or for the future. By living your life one day at a time, you live all the days of your life.

Don’t give up when you still have something to give. Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.

Don’t be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect. It is this fragile thread that binds us each together.

Don’t be afraid to encounter risks. It is by taking chance that we learn how to be brave.

Don’t shut love out of your life by saying it’s impossible to find time. The quickest way to receive love is to give; the fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly; and the best way to keep love is to give it wings!

Don’t run throughout life so fast that you forget not only where you’ve been, but also where you are going.

Don’t forget, a persons greatest emotional need is to be appreciated.

Don’t be afraid to learn. Knowledge is weightless, a treasury you can always carry easily.

Don’t use time or words carelessly. Neither can be retrieved. Life is not a race, but a journey to be savoured each step of the way…
