I will offer you guidance. I will give you my advice. I will even try to stop you if I feel that you may hurt yourself or others. But I understand that this is your life. This is your adventure. This is your journey. You have to live it. You have to have your own experiences.
What do I want from you?
I want you to follow your bliss.
On every road you choose to travel, I will always be the bridge, never the obstacle. I will always be there to help you.
I may be tempted to tell you to stay on the safe path, “Get a job, get married, have children… A life filled with friends, hobbies, trips, love and service to others may be a very enjoyable one.”
But if you feel that you must try something different, go for it! Be courageous and be brave. There are experiences to be lived, lessons to be learned, rewards to be collected along both paths: the safer and the riskier.
So, follow your heart, your passion, your dream, your bliss, because if you don’t, the day will come when you will look back and ask yourself, “Why didn’t I?”
With my blessings,
May the good Lord be with you
down every road you roam
and may sunshine and happiness surround you
when you’re far from home.
And may you grow to be proud
dignified and true
and do onto others as you’d have done to you.
Be courageous and be brave
and in my heart you’ll always stay forever young
May good fortune be with you
may your guiding light be strong.
build a stairway to heaven with a prince or a vagabond.
And may you never love in vain
and in my heart you will remain
And when you finally fly away
I’ll be hoping that I’ve served you well
for all the wisdom of a lifetime no one can ever tell.
But whatever road you choose
I’m right behind you
win or lose
