Thyme For Literary Healing: Oh, The Places You Will Go
Before we were gifted with our respective diseases, I wonder if many of us felt invincible and, or related to the below passage from Dr. Seuss’s “Oh the Places you Will Go”.
In today’s Thyme for a literary healing, we have a few questions, we’d like you to answer. The more honest we are, the more we give of ourselves; the more we learn about our commonalities and respective diseases. I hope you’ll join us in today’s literary healing.
- What were you and your life like before you exhibited any symptoms whatsoever?
- How was your self-esteem?
- Did you feel that anything was possible? If that’s changed, how so? And, what steps have you been taking to reclaim yourself?
The quote from Dr. Seuss’s book “Oh the Places you Will Go
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 one who’ll decide where to go.
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.
I’m sorry to say so
But, sadly it’s true
That bang-ups and hang-ups
Can happen to you.
On and on you will hike, And I know you’ll hike far
and face up to your problems whatever they are.
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.
Will you succeed?
Yes you will indeed!
