The book that had the largest impact on me as a child was "Oh the Places You Will Go" by Dr. Suess. In the beginning of the book we are told that you get to choose where you want to go and what you want to do in your life. We follow a little boy on his journey to all the places he will go. At one point he ends up in the "waiting place," which is a place where you just sit and wait for something to happen. This is not a place you want to be. You want to find the right place for you that is happy and bright. The moral of the story is that the path you will take to where you want to go will not be easy, but if you are persistent and dedicated, you will achieve all you with for in life. This message was always in the back of my mind when moments in my life got tough, and giving up seemed like the best thing to do. When these moments came I always thought of the little boy in his pj's fighting his way through all the bumps in the road to get to a place where he was "ready for anything under the sky."
