Oh, the Places You'll go!

As a kid, Dr. Seuss was my favorite author. He was a true-rhymsical wordsmith and always delivered a wonderful message to all ages.

In life, at one time or another, we all find ourselves in a life balance slump.
Dr. Seuss says it best in Oh, the Places You’ll Go!.
Uncle Scott and Daniel  soaring to great heights!
“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 gang and you’ll soon take the lead.
Wherever you fly, you’ll be the 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
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.

You’ll come down from the Lurch with an unpleasant bump.
And the chances are, then, that you’ll be in a Slump.

And when you’re in a Slump, you’re not in for much fun.
Un-slumping yourself is not easily done.”
 ~ Dr. Seuss
True That! Who hasn't seen great hights then been left in a Lurch?
And you'll come down from the Lurch with an upleasant bump!
 Thank you to the Good Doctor Seuss for helping human-kind keep "the balance." The Fun Way ;o)
