A Toast. To You. To Me.

To long lost dreams, passion, emotion, affection.

To those sacrificed, put away, ignored, surrendered, left, and hung out to dry.

To those moments of awakening and suffering, and the cycle of it.

To memories cherished and forgotten.

To people loved and hold dear.

To sweet beginnings and bitter endings.

To looking at life at a different perspective.

To being brave.

To continue trying.

To continue loving.

To continue believing.

To knowing that there are beautiful things and persons yet to discover and meet.

To courage and selflessness.

To giving a part of yourself to one person at a time.

And to continue to do so.

To the hope that fills you and embraces you.

To doing everything Still and In Spite.

To You. To me.

A Toast.

What You Want Done In Your Name

“Shall I be remembered for mediocrity and ‘what could have been of her’?

Shall I just live my life under the shadows of my failures and misdeeds?

Shall I waste my life and trade the ever present hope of change and improvement with the despair that fills me and haunts me?

Shall I give up and succumb to grief while the world awaits me in my awakening and promise of bringing hope and change?

Do I really just want to be forgotten?

Do I really just want to waste my time and my life wallowing in being rejected?

I want to accomplish great tasks and do great things.

I want to be relevant, valuable and purposeful.

But I also want to remember that greatness starts by accomplishing first the small things.”

Make a decision to change, move on, and never look back.

What the past may have branded you with is of no value.

Stand up strong, reach for the stars and start fulfilling your destiny.

Start small. Continue with small. Until you look back and see how far you have come.

Greatness is already within you. Run my dear, and seize the world. 🙂
