“You’re off to great places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So…get on your way!”
This is from the beloved Dr. Seuss book, Oh, the Places You’ll Go! If you have this book, go get it off your shelf today and read it again. If you don’t own it, try your local library or search for it online. (Just to be clear, I am not being paid to endorse this book.)
It contains great advice for students or children preparing to step out into adult life for the first time as well as timely reminders for the rest of us who have been traveling that road a little longer or finding ourselves on an unexpected road.
Life is full of limitless opportunities for each of us, just waiting to be discovered. You never know what possibilities or adventures or challenges may or may not come your way. As the wise Dr. Seuss states, “Your mountain is waiting.” Whether that mountain is learning to play the flute, developing another talent, reading a book, enduring health challenges, finding peacefulness of self-reflection, exploring the joy of gardening, doing well in school, or practicing giving others the benefit of the doubt, approach it one step at a time “and remember that life’s a Great Balancing Act.”
What are you waiting for? Get going. “Today is your day.” Search for those great places! “And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed.)”
