The Places We’ll Go- Thoughts on Learning, Change and Growth

“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.”
Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You’ll Go!
 
Oh The Places You'll Go

As anyone who regularly reads my blog knows, Dr. Seuss is my muse.   I’m sure there are those who would say that means I’m not a very deep thinker.

Maybe not, but my thinker has thunked some pretty deep thoughts about Horton Hears a Who or the book quoted above, Oh the Places You’ll Go.   Each of those books holds a message. The message I receive may be different from what you take from the words, but a big part of learning is taking what we need.

Life is a continuous journey of learning.    Each step we take, each experience we have teaches us something.  Some places we go on the learning journey are forever places.  Some are just stopovers, places we stop for a time, as we travel to our next destination.

I’m headed on to my next destination now.  (metaphorically speaking, of course, because I am in fact still sitting right here in my big comfy swivel desk chair, just spinning around and sniffing the sharpies).

I learned so much on my last stopover.  I’m grateful for the new things I learned about myself and others and for reinforcement of the things I already knew.     As Dr. Seuss said in the quote above ” So be sure when you step. Step with care and great tact and remember that Life’s a Great Balancing Act”.    I know when I begin to feel a little off-balance it is usually time to move forward on my journey.

I’m excited to get on with this learning journey next step, and I’ll try not to mix up my right foot with my left.
