My hope is that I will learn from my mistakes,
That I will stretch and grow,
And not crumble under the weight of failure,
Or take the hand of disappointment.
That my heart will open to others,
Rejoicing in the differences that make us stronger.
To embrace love, always love,
And see the beauty in that which I don’t understand.
That I will be open to change, new ideas,
And seek kindness over fear,
That I will grow young in mind and spirit,
Seek to inspire and encourage,
And bring joy into the world
Until my very last breath.
