Yesterday, I checked my blog stats. I found that there were a lot of hits on a post I wrote a little over a year ago titled, Oh The Places You'll Go. My assumption is that since it was Dr. Seuss' birthday yesterday, people were doing internet searches for his poems and stumbled across my post. I decided to click on that post and re-read it. I was startled to find what a difference a year makes.
When I wrote that post in January 2011, I was not thinking positively. I dwelled on the undertones of the negativity, bad luck, hardship and misfortune. My perception and interpretation of the famous Dr. Seuss poem was not at all what is was when I re-read it last night.
Instead, this time I felt like the poem was telling me that I can overcome hardship, choose to be well and happy and come out of this ok. Maybe I was just having a good moment. Or, maybe a year really did make a difference.
