“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
Be curious - never stop asking questions

But remain open-minded and heed all suggestions.

Stand for my beliefs with a lion's roar

And remember for all others to hold open the door.

Make the world vast by meeting as many people as I can.

Be always willing to offer a helping hand.

Live with velocity- change direction and make the years race past

Knowing that the next day will be even better than the last.

Temper all actions with both reason and emotion.

Make thinking with both head and heart the goal of my devotion.

When making decisions, breathe deeply and perceive the signs.

Be someone all can count on when the chips are on the line.

Mark success by the relationships I have wrought.

And earn every chance to take the last shot.

Give everything I have, leave nothing left.

Feel pride in knowing I have done my best.

Never say "If only I could do things over again."

Find strength in the love of family and friends.

Hold frustration, sadness, anger and fear at bay:

Sing and laugh and cry and play.

Learn, be grateful and recall what I have done,

Remember always that the best is yet to come.
