This is a big year for all of us.
Each of you is at the beginning of something new.
And isn't it amazing?
Even though you are only at the beginning, I want you to know you have already succeeded.
And it's because you were brave enough to start.
You are so much greater than the greatest dreams I ever had for you.
You have already made me proud.
Remember each moment you will face—good or bad—is only one page in your story.
You are so much more than one page.
Inside each of you there is magic, there is kindness, there is love.
My greatest hope is that you find it.
And that when you do, you have the courage to share it.
Promise me you won't wish for the next chapter, before you've had time to appreciate the one you're in.
Remember every step leads to the next one.
And no matter which way they take you, I'll be there beside you.
