When the paths that we take in life become overshadowed with obstacles, the best route to take is to be optimistic and thankful. The people who become successful use their struggles to become stronger, and surround themselves with others who see opportunities from each failure.

Are You Ready?
Turn away now and face the light
Don’t turn my way I am standing there behind you
I am soaking up the rays of gentle touches
Light blinding me as I move forward and push you with me
Don’t tell me to slow down, we got to move fast
It’s ok to tell me you’re sorry, It’s ok to say you’re angry
I won’t turn around and save you
Unless you are willing to turn around and save me too
We are in this together I say, you and me
Turn away now, you will start to miss me
Oh Lonely Bird
Oh lonely bird where are you flying to?
Your wings are clipped as you brush across the tree
Your beak is torn from such weathered touch
Yet you fly and you do not lose your voice
Singing throughout the air and gracing the face of the sun
Oh lonely bird how are you finding ways to fly high?
Standing on the branch to look out over the world
So larger than you and so distance from you
And you survive just fine when nature holds you in its hand
Oh lonely bird, you are…
