Life is a delicate balancing act. And every now and again we all find ourselves teetering on a ledge. One slight movement in the wrong direction and our world could come crashing down around us.
It is imperative that we make our way out of our balancing slump before it is too late.
No one says it better than Dr Suess in Oh, the Places You’ll Go!.
“You’ll be on your way up! You’ll be seeing great sights!
You’ll join the high fliers, who soar to high heights.
You won’t lag behind, because you’ll have the speed.
You’ll pass the whole gang and you’ll soon take the lead.
Wherever you fly, you’ll be the best of the best.
Wherever you go, you will top all the rest.
Except when you don’t. Because, sometimes, you won’t.
I’m sorry to say so but, sadly, it’s true
and Hang-ups can happen to you.
You can get all hung up in a prickle-ly perch.
And your gang will fly on. You’ll be left in a Lurch.
You’ll come down from the Lurch with an unpleasant bump.
And the chances are, then, that you’ll be in a Slump.
And when you’re in a Slump, you’re not in for much fun.
Un-slumping yourself is not easily done.” -Dr. Seuss
