Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there. ~ Will Rogers Photo by Cameron Cassan

"Insecurity will always rent the space it occupies, but confidence will own the building, and any other room it steps in."

When life gets stressful, just relax
And let loose of every thought
Don’t think about the future or the past
Forget about the struggles you’ve fought
Because in front of you is a beautiful life
Waiting for you to find it
And if you only get caught up in all your strife,
You won’t see what’s right behind it
You have so much going for you, and that you know
Though you don’t admit it’s true
So instead of giving up, try to sew
The threads that will weave into
A masterpiece of a future
That you are only starting to begin
A concept you are yet to capture
Once you allow the thread to spin
So take a breath, take it deep
And know you have so much time
You don’t have to be ready to take that leap
Or have everything figured out in your mind
Life will have its ups and downs
And it will seem like everything’s against you
But really it’s testing if you can stand your ground
And fight until you get through
And once you do, because you will,
You’ll feel so satisfied
And you’ll be able to fulfill
Anything you decide
Like somebody once told me,
“Keep your head up high”
Show everybody that you see
That contagious joyful smile
