Joy Today: Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss

Happy birthday to fellow Pisces, Dr. Seuss! Whenever I make a big life change, his book Oh, the Places You’ll Go! gives me courage. Not ashamed to say I get choked up every time I read it. It’s the Hero’s Journey in rhyme. You soar. You fall. You fail. You dust yourself off. You try again. The important thing is that you keep going – through the Lurch, the Waiting Place, the lake full of Hakken-Kraks, and all the games, some good, some bad, some lonely, some scary. Go in search of the Boom Bands and you’ll find them. You’ll face up to all your problems. You’ll figure out Life’s Great Balancing Act. And you’ll succeed. You’ll move mountains. Just don’t give up.
“It’s opener there
in the wide open air.
Be your name Baubaum or Bixby or Bray
or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O’Shea,
you’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So…get on your way.”

I'd love to know what you think of this post! Please leave a reply and I'll get back to you in a jiffy! ~ CRA
