“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.”
This is one of my favorite Dr. Seuss quotes because it encourages you to trust yourself. While it’s always great to get advice from friends and family about what to do in a specific situation or about what our future goals should be (having just recently graduated from college, I’m definitely familiar with the last one), you ultimately need to go with your gut and believe that whatever it is you are doing, wherever you end going, is right for you. And if it doesn’t feel right, if you’re continually question your life on daily basis, then it’s time to put on a new pair of shoes and start walking in a different direction.
