The birds are chirping
The flowers are blooming
Children and young adults are itching to get out of school
The smell of the ocean, the sun on our faces
Walking outdoors to all of our familiar places.
Mothers are celebrated. And birthdays too.
Diplomas will be in hand.
The month of May is oh so grand.
May you feel everything and attached to nothing.
May the wind be on your back and the sun shine warm your face.
May you realize it’s okay to not be okay.
May you know when to say yes and how to say no.
May you learn from all of your mistakes.
May you follow your heart and your dreams without any one trying to bust them at the seams.
May you get up every time you fall
Dust off and try again.
May you have faith and understand that there is a plan for you.
May you take the time to heal all of your wounds.
May you live in the present and not in the past. This life we live goes way too fast.
May you find stillness in this world of chaos.
May you smile big even when no one is around.
May you sing and dance and act like a clown.
May you grow and flourish at your own pace, and remember that life is not a race.
May you learn, practice, share and teach. Use your gifts to help those in need.
May you one day find your voice. Always remember you have a choice.
It may take time, and that’s okay. Talk less observe more. Be a sponge. Listen.
May you treat your body like the greatest temple in the universe. If something’s not right, listen and take it a step further.
May you find comfort in your skin and walk with your head high.
May you be Authentically perfect imperfect and not follow the crowd.
May you find joy in the little things like the smile on your kids faces or the smell of fresh flowers and not the material things.
May you take time to be alone. Read. Write. Meditate.
May you be independent and able to stand on your own two feet. Remember, dependency is for the weak.
May you live your life your way without hesitation or guilt.
May you be happy
May you be healthy
May you be strong
