Try Something New, You Might Like It
In the famous Dr. Seuss story, "Green Eggs and Ham," the main character won't try something new for ages, but when he finally tries it, he loves it. There might be something great out there that you are missing, jus because you are too nervous to try something new. Experiment and do something out of character, meet new people, or even just eat some strange new food. Who knows, you might love it!
You Are The Master Of Your Destiny
In the story, "Oh the Places You'll Go" the character learns that they can go and do whatever they want, so long as they put their mind to it. You can do this too, all you need to do is get out there, and do what you love. Don't let fate control you, instead, make your own destiny.
Always Keep Learning
In the book, "I Can Read with my Eyes Shut," the charcters learn that they can learn things all of the time, even if they are not actually reading a textbook. You can learn when you are in school or out of school, all you have to do is try. Try new things, go out and explore the world around you, and never stop learning!
One Person Can Make A Difference
In the book, "Horton Hears a Who," one elephant ends up being responible for a whole world, and he ends up saving it, even though others try to stop him. One person can make a big difference. You can make a difference in your own life, and in the lives of others. Volunteering giving blood, and just helping others are all great ways to do this.
Be Grateful For What You Already Have
In the story, "Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?" children learn that they are lucky, even though it doesn't always seem like it. You are lucky too. Look towards the good things in life instead of focusing on all of the bad things in life. Life can be great, but only if you make it great.
