Today is your day to dance lightly with life,
sing wild songs of adventure,
invite rainbows and butterflies out to play,
soar your spirit, and unfurl your joy.
Today is your day to paint life in bold colors,
set today’s rhythm with your heart-drum,
walk today’s march with courage,
create today as your celebration of life.
Today is your day to practice whimsey,
skip on the beach, and play with the waves,
watch wondrous cloud animals parade your story,
find a magical white bunny down every rabbit hole.
Today is your day to laugh at life,
laugh at what’s funny – laugh at what’s sad,
laugh loud – laugh often,
laugh at me – laugh at you – laugh at life.
Today is your day to honor your being,
release each and every struggle,
gather strength from life’s storms,
relax into the arms of spirit.
Today is your day to see in yourself the face of god.
Your mind sparks, your soul sparkles.
Your peace is counterpoint to the clamor of life.
You are a magnificent gift to the world.
