What has came before has prepared you for this.
Every triumph, every setback, heartache, failure,
And every victory are lessons learned in life’s classroom.
This is why you did all that work,
Faced your fears,
Prayed the prayers and meditated on the outcomes.
You anchored yourself during the storms
And held on with everything you had.
It all has brought you to now,
This seminal and transcendent moment in time,
Which has the potential to transform life as you know it.
This is the only life you get,
Give it everything you have and don’t hold back.
