This week I came across a quote I had heard/read before, but I never knew where it came from (the exact book anyway). As you know, Saturday was my birthday. Corey made the day awesome. It was so much fun. One of the gifts he gave me was Dr. Seuss’s Happy Birthday to You book. As I read that, I came across this quote:
“Today you are you! That is truer than true!
There is no one alive who is you-er than you!
Shout loud, ‘I am lucky to be what I am!
Thanks goodness I’m not just a clam or a ham
Or a dusty old jar of sour gooseberry jam!
I am what I am! That’s a great thing to be!
If I say so myself, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!’”
I love this quote, especially the first two lines, because it’s true. There is no one else who is me. I’m proud to be me, even with all my flaws. And, it’s nice to be reminded of that sometimes.
