//
it’s goodbye again,
i’m sorry to be leaving you
goodbye again,
as if you didn’t know
it’s goodbye again
and i wish you could tell me
why do we always fight when i have to go?

if you only follow me for one reason,
let it be - to read this, and live it.
//
Quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death.
Set God-sized goals. 
Pursue God-ordained passions.
Go after a dream that is destined to fail without divine intervention. 
Keep asking questions.
Keep making mistakes.
Keep seeking God.
Stop pointing out problems and become part of the solution.
Stop repeating the past and start creating the future.
Stop playing it safe and start taking risks.
Expand your horizons.
Accumulate experiences.
Enjoy the journey.
Find every excuse you can to celebrate everything you can.
Live like today is the first day and last day of your life.
Don’t let what’s wrong with you keep you from worshiping what’s right with God.
Burn sinful bridges.
Blaze new trails.
Criticize by creating.
Worry less about what people think and more about what God thinks.
Don’t try to be who you’re not.
Be yourself.
Laugh at yourself.
Don’t let fear dictate your decisions.
Take a flying leap of faith.
Quit holding out.
Quit holding back.
Quit running away.
..Chase the lion!

the road goes ever ever on,
over rock and under tree,
by caves where never sun has shone,
by streams that never find the sea;
over snow by winter sown,
and through the merry flowers of june,
over grass and over stone,
and under mountains of the moon..
