Dr. Seuss

That's not for you!

Somehow you'll escape all that waiting and staying.
You'll find the bright places where Boom Bands are playing.
With banner flip-flapping, once more you'll ride high!
Ready for anything under the sky.
Really because you're that kind of guy!

Oh, the places you'll go! There is fun to be done!
There are points to be scored. There are games to be won.
And the magical things you can do with that ball will make you the winning-est winner of all.
Fame! You'll be famous as famous can be,
with the whole wide world watching you win on TV.


And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)

I stumbled upon a gift from a friend that is close to my heart. He gave me this children's book when I moved to New York almost exactly a year ago, told me not to open it until I was all by myself. Haha. Funny that I thought he did that because he wanted to keep my anticipation level at it's peak so it would be a really good gift. Well, I was glad that he did that because I wouldn't read the book, instead I would probably just glance at it, thank him with a hug, put it away, and never see it again. I mean, why would you give me a children's book anyway? Lol.

This book is powerful. I remember my eyes watering up after reading it because it was such inspiration. A simple poetic story about life's ups and downs that is absolutely true. Although it is a children's book, it wasn't all happy sunshine and rainbows, the book speaks about loneliness and failures as much as encouragement and success. 

If you need inspiration, go get the book. It's called Oh, the Places You'll Go! 
Mine was the party edition which I love because of it's beautiful bright pictures and colors.
Thank you K for the inspiration :)

Oh, and also ignore my sweaty-after-workout face and standing baby hairs. Hehe.

Till then loves. Keep dreaming. Make it happen!
