Expressive Affirmations:

I am the drum. You are the drum.
We are the drum. We are the rhythm.

Say YES to this moment.
I say YES!

Live in the day, don't wait for tomorrow.
We're made of love, not fear not sorrow.

Feel it in your body.
Hey! Life is good.

Today is a gift. That's why it's called the
Present – The Present.

Let's go with it. Start growing it.
When I feel the joy I'm showing it.

I don't need to know your name.
I see your soul and we're the same.

I got you. You got me.
It's how we build a community.

Together – Yes we can!
