California boy, youíve never taken a chance.
You must login to vote
California boy, youíve never surfed the high tide.
You must risk being swallowed by the waves
if you want to have all the fun!
California boy, you donít bask in the sun.
California boy, donít miss the summertime!
When you feel the burn,
youíll never freeze again.
California boy, you passed by a chance-
you missed me by a mile.
Your time isnít meant to while
away without offering to dance.
California boy, live for today
and seize the night-
You wonít have missed a thing
if there is no morning light.

The present and future are not about who you were in the past-rather, they are about who you are and who you will become.

What you are is beautiful..."

Life surprises you! And I'm talking about the good stuff, because a bad surprise is not a surprise at all, it is just shock and horror. All of these good surprises, they are rewards, and the things that happen to remind you that you matter and that you should make yourself faithful so that you can be deserving of all of life's good surprises. Every wonderful surprise in life is a chance to flourish, so grab life by the horns-but don't ride, steer instead: life's horns are life's joystick. You can handle it, because your life's horns are made especially for you. If you don't give up, all of this will hold true and life will continue to surprise you.
