A life steered with happiness, is what we all desire
and to live simply, dream big, explore love from within.
A need to pursue a passion, that sets our souls on fire.
Not afraid to make mistakes and learning from them.
To surround ourselves with flowers and a good book.
We yearn to live in the moment and take it day by day.
Soon you’ll find, that a positive attitude is all it took,
and your freedom is in your hands – mould the clay.
Why wait until we are old and retired to start living?
You crave great memories of a life lived, not regret,
and collecting life’s moments about loving and giving.
Life is a journey – and that’s all that needs to be said.
