Time to look ahead,
Remember, don’t be lead
Into places where you don’t want to go. 
Stand tall, breathe and just let it flow. 

Ask for help if that’s what you need,
Don’t look back, look ahead and lead. 
Look for reasons to just keep going. 
Believe in yourself and your light will be glowing.  

Keep on keeping on!
Perseverance and determination,
Gives you the energy to push through those rough times.
Be resilient,
Learn as much as you can,
Become versatile,
It helps you become resilient and resourceful. 

Be kind to yourself,
Do what you enjoy doing,
When you have the time. 
And it’s ok not to be ok.
