  If the day looks kinder gloomy
  And your chances kinder slim,
  If the situation’s puzzlin’
  And the prospect’s awful grim,
  If perplexities keep pressin’
  Till hope is nearly gone,
  Just bristle up and grit your teeth
  And keep on keepin’ on.

  Frettin’ never wins a fight
  And fumin’ never pays;
  There ain’t no use in broodin’
  In these pessimistic ways;
  Smile just kinder cheerfully
  Though hope is nearly gone,
  And bristle up and grit your teeth
  And keep on keepin’ on.

  There ain’t no use in growlin’
  And grumblin’ all the time,
  When music’s ringin’ everywhere
  And everything’s a rhyme.
  Just keep on smilin’ cheerfully
  If hope is nearly gone,
  And bristle up and grit your teeth
  And keep on keepin’ on.

Your homework today is to take the next step!  Break it into itsy bitsy parts and then teeny tiny pieces.  Then do those pieces!

You can do it!

I’m so proud of you!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

Lauren
