Every year on March 2, Best in Class is reminded of the inspirational and educational work of Theodor Seuss Geisel, or as we know him, Dr. Seuss. Something that we can all agree on is that no matter what age we are, Dr. Seuss’ books are relatable and fun to read. Luckily for us, his birthday comes just in time for some mid-semester inspiration. In one of his most famous books, Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, Dr. Seuss writes, “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…” Most of the time, we are our own worst enemy. We get inside our own heads and convince ourselves that we can’t do something. Sometimes it feels like it’s easy to give up, but Dr. Seuss reminds us here that we’ve got all the tools we need to succeed inside of ourselves. At the end of the day, you are the one who calls the shots. This week, and hopefully the weeks to follow as well, think about all of the wonderful things you’ve accomplished this semester, big or small, and use it as motivation to keep moving forward. And while you are at it, pick up one of his books today for some inspiration. We could all use some of his wisdom ESPECIALLY on his birthday!
“You’re off to Great Places! You’re off and away!”
