Your Mountain is Waiting

So it's my birthday! Rather than list 27 things I'd like to do while I'm 27 or talk about what I have done with my life so far, I'm going to stay true to the purpose of the blog.  In the hopes of inspiring myself on my birthday and you where ever you are in life, I'm going to quote one of my favorite authors:

Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places!
You're off and away!
You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You're on your own.  And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who'll decide where to go
And when things start to happen,
don't worry. Don't stew.
Just go right along.
You'll start happening too.
Oh! The Places You'll Go!
With banner flip-flapping,
once more you'll ride high!
Ready for anything under the sky.
Ready because you're that kind of guy!
And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and 3/4 percent guarenteed.)
Kid, You'll Move Mountains!
be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O'Shea,
you're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.


  1. thanks again! haha Wasn't planning on posting two birthdayish posts, but I just read this to my daughter, and it seemed to fit the day well :)
