This post is dedicated to my favourite childhood author: Dr. Seuss….
He makes witty and wordy and wonderful rhymes
That you can read one hundred and ten thousand times
(And probably do)
The stories are simple, short, and great fun
But with hidden meaning in every one.
My personal favourite is one you all know
The title is ‘Oh the Places You’ll Go!’
I read it when I felt in deep dark despair
when I thought to myself that life wasn’t fair
…And then I realized something…
I was in the waiting place which would not help me win this race, called life.
But life is too short to put things on hold
Time to get doing, be daring and dashing and bold!
Along the way there might be hiccups and spills,
But I also knew I would pick up new skills.
And that would be worth it
Because today I am living my life
Free from the self-imposed rules and strife
…Which made me realize something…
Life can be simple or life can be grand
But it does not always go according to plan
And that’s ok too
Just ask to yourself…’What would Dr. Seuss do?’
This is what he’d say to you:
Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!
You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.”
What life lessons have your learnt from Dr. Seuss?
