Recently I dropped by a CrossFit Kid's Camp and got to see this theory in action. The workout challenged them to find a way to work together, trust one another & push themselves - even when they thought they couldn't. We wrapped up the morning with story time and I found myself engulfed in the message, creating and dreaming up the possibilities of my future.
There are a few books that are often categorized as "Children's Books" that are among my favorites --> To Kill a Mockingbird, The Adventures of Huckleberry Fin, A Wrinkle in Time & of course the master of 'childhood' poetry Dr. Seuss.
Think Dr. Seuss' rhymes are meant for kids? Think again - Pay attention to Dr. Seuss' lyrical and theatrical prose, they are life lessons we can all use:
- The more that you read,
The more things you will know.
The more that you learn,
The more places you’ll go.
- 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 one who'll decide where to go.
- And today the great Yertle, that Marvelous he,
Is King of the Mud. That is all he can see.
And the turtles, of course... all the turtles are free
As turtles and, maybe, all creatures should be.
