Stay in the moment…there are so many things you can’t take away, can’t hold onto, can’t keep with you

 

Don’t allow those tears to spill over and ruin the ambience; there’s no sense in crying before the happiness has fully dissolved

 

Live while you’re able—waste not a breath, withhold not a smile

Remember to forgive the forgetful and forget the forgiven; grudges will only weigh down your wings

 

Love while you’re alive—give no thought to partings and death

Where’s the good in skipping forward to the end of each new story?

 

Let life run its course—just don’t let it pass you by

If it’s too much to handle all at once, then just you breathe and sip it slow

 

Roll with the rivers against the rocks, and be not deterred by those small setbacks

 

Stay on your toes…and just maybe you can reach for the sun, moon, and stars

 

Who knows what else you may catch with those outstretched fingers—heaven or hell could be just a snag away

 

But the thrill comes in looking without knowing what to expect of what you will find

 

And when the veil of the moment slips off, you’ll see everything was worth the hassle you’ve been through and more

 

Disappointment won’t dare step a foot into the big picture you’ve finally noticed
