Each difficult lesson we learn in life is an essential gift. Even though we are creatures of modeling and habit, we all have endless potential and an innate ability to become who we were truly meant to be. Do not give up. We can always become unstuck and make things right. We owe it to our children and to ourselves.
If you weren’t taught, teach
If you weren’t heard, listen
If you were suffocated, breathe
If you were taught to fear, be brave
If you were taught to conform, stand out
If you were surrounded by dark, be bright
If you were held back, forge ahead
If you were rejected, embrace
If you were told you were small, grow.
And do not stop growing.
