Shine your precious light with the glitter of a thousand stars.
Capture the beauty of your gifts, know in your heart who you are.
Brighten each day by speaking words of gentle, tender kindness.
Know each breath has the power to lift ,and the strength to surely bind us.
Regret doesn’t alter the past ,just as worry can’t change tomorrow.
Seek the stillness of the present, for fleeting time is what we borrow.
Cultivate your hopes with joy, by what you give attention.
Your inner peace is a daily choice, a matter of intention.
Don’t change to fit into stories that do not belong to you.
Write your own adventure, be your author stay “soul true.”
Hold fast to your fondest dreams.
Be a vision of love that creates.
Be a force of good in this world, for your legacy awaits.
