Dare to re-invent yourself
when you don’t know what that looks like yet.
Dare to dream bigger than
you feel comfortable dreaming.
Dare to love unreasonably,
even if you have been hurt.
Dare to practice radical self love
even when you aren’t sure how.
Dare to practice big compassionate love
for others, even those you don’t know.
Dare to say yes to your own self
when family or friends don’t understand anymore.
Dare to not let fear get in your way,
and when it does, dare to keep moving.
Dare to be the most you that you can be
while accepting yourself right as you are.
Dare to discover what beautiful means,
to you and only you.
Dare to call yourself an artist, a poet,
a dreamer, a thinker, a revolutionary.
Dare to take passionate action
so that your fire will be lit within you.
Dare to take risks that make you feel hopeful
when you don’t know how it will all work.
Dare be a colorful being, and dance alone.
Dare to live. Dare to love. Dare to laugh.
Dare to not get it right. Dare to get back up.
Dare to live in amazing grace.
