Sitting here in my office thinking about the field of life; its comings and goings, its to's and fro's, its many roads and detours. Through all of this maneuvering of life, some times our goings get rough. Just as life always goes but we know how the story unfolds. Well, "Congratulations!!! 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 (person) who'll decide where to go. You'll look up and down streets. Look'em over with care. About some you will say, "I don't choose to go there." With your head full of brains (hopefully) and your shoes full of feet, you're to smart to go down any not-so-good street. And you may not find ANY you'll want to go down. In that case, of course, you'll head straight out of town.
It opens there in the wide open air. Out there things can happen and frequently do to people as brainy and footsy as you. And when things start to happen, don't worry. Don't stew.
Just go right along.
YOU'LL start happening to.
You'll be on your way up!
You'll be seeing great sights!
You'll join the high fliers who soar to high heights.
You won't lag behind, because you'll have the speed. You'll pass the whole game and you'll soon take the lead. Wherever you fly, you'll be best of the best. Wherever you go, you will top all the rest. Except when you DON'T.
Because, sometimes, you WON'T.
I'm sorry to say so but, sadly, it's true that Bang-ups and Hang-ups CAN happen to you. You can get all hung up in a prickle-ly perch. And your gang will fly on.
You'll be left in a LURCH." A little light reading for you tonight. You're welcome. To find out where else you will go and how to get out of a LURCH, pick up a copy of 'Oh, the Places You'll Go!' By Dr. Seuss rom your local library. Remember, you're awesome.
