~Surprise Yourself~

A precious friend reminded me that I needed to surprise myself.

And helped me realize once again, how special I really am.

What’s more, gave me back a few things today.

Priceless things — I lost long ago…

That I didn’t think were possible anymore.

Things I believed just weren’t in the cards for me.

I could thank you every day for a lifetime and it would not be sufficient!

I am eternally grateful — to you — for what you have done for me!

Thank you for giving me life’s greatest gifts, gifts beyond that which I could’ve ever dreamt for — Restoring my belief in hope, graciously granting the possibility of a bright shining future, becoming my new family, reaffirming the true meaning of this life, and most of all — for saving mine!!!

“Surprise Yourself” – Lyrics by Jack Garratt

Speak and open up your mind
It’s something you should do all the time
Keep exploring, seek and find
You know you might surprise yourself
Talk without a taint or hold
The doubts that should embrace your heart
The calm and chaos of your soul
You know you might surprise yourself

Take a pen and write this down
Draw something that can’t be found
And learn to walk again somehow
You know you might surprise yourself

Oh, if you only knew
The times that train has fooled me too
And tears me from a place I know
It helps me to surprise myself
You know you can surprise yourself
So let go and surprise yourself


  1. That’s fantastic. It’s nice to read your elated words full of energy and high-spirits. Groovy graphics. Does Mr. Garret have music to go with his lyrics? I’d love hear it if he does.
