I found this on Pinterest and couldn’t resist adding it to my blog.
These are but 5 Dr. Seuss True-isms . . . I’m sure there are dozens more that you enjoy and may apply to your life. Some of the stories were probably your favorites . . . all because they seemed to speak to you . . . giving you some insight to something you had been thinking about . . . or it just made you feel good . . . or made you laugh.
Even as adults we have learned many things from our childhood that has stuck with us.
These are our personal true-isms.
Thoughts and ideas we pass down to our children . . . and grandchildren . . .
We continue to learn . . . years after we’ve finished school . . .
We learn from books and movies . . . there is something that resonates within us . . . It could be a greeting card we received . . . Or even something we observed while taking a walk or bike ride . . .
There is inspiration all around us . . . we just have to stop long enough to see . . . to hear . . . to think . . .
In my senior year of high school we had a “ditch day” . . . with planned activities . . .
Yes, there were the rehearsals for the graduation ceremony and then we went to the park for lunch . . . then we were free to go home for a nap because we had a Disney Grad Night celebration . . .
I remember that picnic lunch in the park . . . years later, I’d drive by and remember . . .
Then, decades earlier I stopped and walked through that area of the park. I even sat down . . . lost in memory of that day . . . a day when the 12 years of education came to an end . . . a time to plan for a future . . . yes, college . . . some friends were getting married . . . others had jobs . . .
I sat there . . . alone . . . remembering . . . thinking of all those kids . . . their dreams and goals . . .
Yes, I achieved my goals . . . as far as it went . . . with life lessons thrown in . . .
I do feel very fortunate and have been blessed by many who have come into my life . . .
No, I haven’t returned to the park . . . I remember it . . . but I have my own place to go for reflection . . . to see . . . to hear . . . to dream . . . and to remember . . .
My grandmother would stop every afternoon and have a cup of tea with a couple of cookies or a Danish . . . and she would sit quietly in her kitchen and sometimes sit on her front porch. It was her quiet time . . . Wherever her thoughts led her, I don’t know . . . she never shared them with me . . . but I imagine they may have gone to similar places where my thoughts take me . . . maybe she sat with her mother or grandmother in the kitchen having a cup of tea and a couple of cookies . . . sitting still and quiet . . . maybe she thought of those days . . . or of stories she read or was told so long ago . . .
Our thoughts can take us on wonderful journeys . . . to the past and even the future . . . we can imagine so very much . . . if we just stop long enough . . .
We are living in a miraculous age . . . the internet opens a whole new concept of communicating with people around the world . . . even communication with our friends and family has improved . . .
I have a couple of friends I met in my internet marketing group who do Google Hangouts regularly . . . It’s real time face time . . . They are thousands of miles away from me, physically, but it’s like we’re right there visiting . . . we’re all sitting in front of our computers in the privacy of our own homes . . . but we’re together . . . but separate . . . That’s a mind-binder . . .
People can take classes on-line . . . they can do crafts together . . . they can visit with several friends or family members via the internet and a URL address . . . My grandmother couldn’t imagine such a thing . . . nor could I a few decades ago . . . It is really something . . .
I hope these Dr. Seuss true-isms gave you some food for thought.
Until next time,
