Oh, the places you will go!

It’s February in a few! I’m grateful for miracles. Thank you for staying with me in January. ☺️

I thought of a new month gift for a fine human like you and I decided to gift you my favorite poetry. It’s titled “oh, the places you will go, by Doctor Seuss.


OH , THE PLACES YOU’LL GO !

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 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 and your shoes full of feet,
You're too 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's opener 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 too.

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.
You'll get mixed up, of course,
As you already know.

You'll get mixed up
With many strange birds as you go.
So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact.

And remember that Life's
A Great Balancing Act.

Just never forget to be dexterous and deft.
And never mix up your right foot with your left.

And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)
KID, YOU'LL MOVE MOUNTAINS!

So...
Be your name Buxbaum 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!
  - Dr. Seuss

Happy February, ediye (beautiful one).

Emem ye ifure. (Peace and serenity).

From, your GJ. 💜
