From This Moment On

I hope you laugh more.
I hope you sing at the top of your lungs.
I hope you drive with the windows down
and let the wind rustle through your hair.
I hope you hug. I hope you kiss.
I hope you surround yourself with
people who make you feel alive.
I hope you become the type of person that
brings good energy wherever you go, and
the type of person people want to be around.
I hope you speak what’s on your mind,
that you raise your voice for injustice,
that you tell others that you love them,
instead of waiting until it’s too late.
I hope you live gracefully & shine brighter.
From this moment on.

Smile

Smiling is infectious
You catch it like the flu

When someone smiled at me today
I started smiling too

I walked around the corner
and someone saw me grin

When he smiled I realized
I had passed it on to him

I thought about the smile
And then realized its worth

A single smile like mine
Could travel round the earth

So if you feel a smile begin
Don’t leave it undetected

Start an epidemic
And get the world infected

May the sun bring you new energy by day,
may the moon softly restore you by night.
May the rain wash away your worries,
may the breeze blow new strength into your being.
May you walk gently through the world
and know its beauty all the days of your life.
