“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
Dr. Seuss

She’s learning to let go,

of all the mistakes she made,

mistakenly or on purpose,

and to move on.

Learning to live in the moment,

to appreciate the present,

because she’s learning that the present really is a gift.

She’s learning to truly believe in her belief

that everything happens for a reason.

She’s learning to grow,

to smile when she feels happy,

to not hide in her shell quite so much.

Learning every day.
