Celebrating Travel (and Its Wondrous Possibilities)

Oh, the Places You’ll Go! As America just finished celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday, it got me thinking to back to when I was a kid: I‘m not sure if I appreciated the wisdom of Dr. Seuss (aka Theodor Geisel) as much as I do as an adult. His books always entertained me, but I didn’t realize that a majority of life’s lessons could be found on their pages. I think fondly of sayings like, “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. You are the guy who’ll decide where to go.” This is so simple, yet so profound. It reminds us that we are only limited by our ability to believe in the impossible. You—and only you—decide how successful you will be at something.
