| If I could say one thing to you tonight, I’d say thank you. Thank you for all of the wrong decisions that you’ve made, so that I can recognize the right ones. I’d say you’re braver than you know, even when you’re shaking on the inside. I’d say you could walk through fire and rise up from the ashes, if only you would listen to your heart and not your head. I’d say you can climb out of anything when you say thank you for your life.
If I could say one thing to you tonight, I’d say that all is well and right. All is well, and timing is everything so don’t worry it will come. I’d say that your dreams are worth following, even if the road dead ends at times. It doesn’t mean that it’s not worth it, just place your struggles in the light. I’d say that you are learning, so cut yourself a little break. I’d say you can do anything when you believe that all is well and right.
If I could say one thing to you tonight, I’d say above all others trust yourself. Trust yourself to know what’s right, not for others, but for yourself. I’d say that sometimes no is more powerful than yes. To many times we say yes without thinking of the cost. I’d say that once you’ve mastered trust in yourself it spreads like ripples to the world.
If I could say one thing to you tonight, I’d say know thyself. Written on the Oracle of Delphi is where you find this simple secret left from times that have gone by. It’s just two simple words, but they need no more embellishment. Just know thyself and that is all.
If I could say one thing to you tonight, I’d say always be open. New experiences make new life, always be open when they come. I’d say I was more afraid of staying than going and it’s time to do the hard things not let those old fears run your life. I’d say always be open, let the change come where it may.
If I could say one thing to you tonight, I’d just say I love you. I love you for who you’ve been, who you are and who you are becoming. I’d say keep your heart open, love is your weapon and your shield. I’d say these are the lessons that I leave to the girl I used to be, the woman that I aspire to be and to the women I hope for my daughters to be. Always be grateful, all is well, trust yourself, know yourself, stay open, and above all else LOVE with all your heart.
