We’re venturing out into a shiny New Year,
Hopeful – Eager – Excited! There’s nothing to fear!
Perhaps many goals you’ve dreamed and then written.
But a word of caution, lest you be chased down and bitten.
It’s wise to pause a moment to think – plan – think twice – and prepare,
Before dashing out clambering and scrambling up the great winding stair.
Heed these words of advice, from famed Dr. Seuss,
Not to be jarred, shaken, or even knocked loose.
Resolutions and goals are truly worth every dime,
But not getting slumped saves a great deal of time.
So before running wildly out and about, to and fro,
Watch carefully now and observe – “Oh, The Places You’ll Go!”
If bogged down in ‘The Land of Doubt’ or not sure where to start,
Simply take a moment to listen, and then follow your heart.
For if you do that, then there’s no more to say,
Because following your Spirit, you’ll be well on your way!
Happy New Year! To view the text of the video from Dr. Seuss and find out more about the ‘Burning Man’ annual gathering, visit my “Oh, The Places You’ll Go!” page.
Wishing everyone a safe, healthy, and joyful new year! And whatever your goals and resolutions may be, please ensure that “Be Kind” is at the top of the list. Because that is where everything truly must begin. — Jim (and Red!)
