Why You Should Never Give Up

What if the first time you ate your favorite food it wasn’t cooked right?
What if the first time you saw the ocean was at night?
What if the first time you heard your favorite artist their voice wasn’t up to par?
What if the first time you went star gazing you never saw a star?

So why is there so much pressure to ace that first test?
Many people say you have to fail to succeed

You don’t begin and end all at the same time
So why would you think giving up would ever be fine?
If you give up you won’t get...

YOU

You are YOU and that’s all that you need to be
Be YOU, not me, you need to be free
Free to be who YOU want to be
Be able to look in the mirror so you can really see
See the strength that lives in the depths of your soul
Soul searching day and night to achieve your goal
Goal planning because you are meant to be great
Great, real great, there is no debate
Debate if you want, but you have a purpose which you need to find
Find the answer hidden inside your mind

Same is not who you are, you should...

Ever heard the expression, “Big things come in small packages?”
We all know Life is gonna be full of challenges
But if you learn to appreciate the little things
Then you’ll be able to take on whatever the day brings
Maybe it’s the smell of your favorite flower
Or maybe it’s the song you sing in the shower
Maybe it’s the sound of walking on fresh snow
Or maybe it’s being front row at your favorite show
Maybe it’s the sound of sneakers squeaking on a basketball court
Or maybe it’s taking the day off and building a giant pillow fort
Maybe it’s the sound of crashing waves
Or maybe it’s simply the sunshine your body craves
Maybe it’s turning the page of your...
