Letter Board No. 13

“Minds are like flowers – they only open when the time is right.”

Follow Your Dreams

Life is full of ups and downs; good and bad; happy and sad. But life is really what you make of it. So make the best of it! Follow those dreams! The road to success may not be an easy one, but you can overcome. “The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.”

Rainbows and rain

Never, ever give up on those dreams. I hope you find whatever you are looking for at the end of your rainbow!

Cheers!
