Announce to the world
that you are ready
to live your life fully.

Touched by the spirits
of your ancestors,
you can travel in time
to find compassion and wisdom.

Remember you are part of a force
that will bring forth the energy,
that will inspire the changes,
that will birth wonder.

There will be challenges,
but the richness and wonder of life
will find it’s way.
