A Little Guide to Life

          Be good to yourself,
There are some things

            everyone deserves-

Love, respect, time to recharge,

                             Never settle for less.

               Seek out your  

Start small. Take it as it comes.     

 Even a butterfly has to inch along        

before getting its wings.   

            to your heart.                                   

Trust your gut.                    

If the way seems unclear,             

look within you.

    Let your voice be heard.

You have a story to tell and opinions that count.

   And a difference to make.           

         Stay Curious.                                                


      Take every opportunity to learn.                          

Knowledge is a gift.                

               It will take you places.

Hold on to what's important.

Let worries go.

             No matter how you look at it,

                            some things just don't make sense.

    The way you choose to carry on

is what really


     And when you make that list of what you want in life,

                  make another list of what you've got.

            Be sure to start with all the things

                           that make you a 

        beautiful person.

                                            There are so many.

         Most of all remember you're
