As You Grew

As you grew,
no matter what happened we looked at the sunny side of life.
As you grew, we helped you avoid unnecessary worry.
As you grew, we encouraged you to be open and direct.
As you grew, we helped you find solutions.
As you grew, we encouraged individual thought and action.
As you grew, we reinforced the value of family & friends.
As you grew, we shared many happy times.
As you grew, we taught you values, right from wrong.

Never stop believing in yourself.
When others doubt, don't you.
Do what you love to do,
No one knows better than you.
Life is too short to live others' dreams
Follow your own dream
Push yourself to reach your goals
And live the life you once dreamed.
Trust your instincts.
Be true to yourself.
You know what is right for you.
Never give up or give in.
Forget the words "I don't know how".
You can learn,
You can research,
You can do.
Your mind is powerful.
When you believe you can.
You will find a way
You won't waste a day.
Persist and persevere
Do not fear
Because if you believe in you
You will find dreams can come true.
May all your dreams turn into goals,
Believe in yourself.
And remember, all of life is a choice.
The decision is up to you.
Believe in Yourself,
Dare To Be
Whatever You Want To Be!
Above all, always be yourself.
William Arthur Ward
Poet: Donna Levine
There is inside you
And though at times it may seem too
One morning you will awake to find
