You've gotta.

{via: flickr.}

You've gotta let your hopes shine through you like they did when you were a little girl.
You've gotta take it one day at a time, moment by moment.
You've gotta go to sleep with hopes of magical dreams so you can dream magical dreams full of your hopes.
You've gotta realize it's ok to change your mind everyday about what you wanna be when you grow up.
You've gotta put passion into everything you are doing. If you can't, you've gotta change something.
You've gotta get excited about the little things.
You've gotta feel sad if you are sad, mad if you are mad, lost if you are lost...
You've gotta give yourself time to appreciate the prize in the cereal box.
You've gotta dress up in whatever makes you feel the best. Not what others think should.
You've gotta be proud of yourself when you're really good at something.
You've gotta accept the things you know you struggle with.
You've gotta be okay with asking for help when you need it.
You've gotta say what you need to say.
You've gotta follow your own path. 
You've gotta do what makes you truly happy.
You've gotta understand how much you are loved.
but most of all,
You've gotta love yourself.

you've just gotta.
