“It’s not where you start, it’s where you finish”

Monday, May 06, 2013

Thanks to Dovesyes whose spark page reminded me of this song.

We all started in different places and have our eye on a different finish line.

As the lyrics say:

It's not where you start, it's where you finish,
It's not how you go, it's how you land.
A hundred to one shot, they call him a klutz,
Can outrun the fav'rite, all he needs is the guts.
Your final return will not diminish,
And you can be cream of the crop.
It's not where you start, it's where you finish,
And you're going to finish on top.

See you at the top Sparkers.
I’ll be singing this song in my head as I run today.

(Music by Cy Coleman - Lyrics by Dorothy Fields)

Note to my fellow maintainers – We’re going to STAY on top too!
Just because the song is from the musical “Seesaw” doesn’t mean we have to “yo-yo.”

    Too funny about being from the Seesaw musical//does not mean we can yo-yo. Nice positive words to move us to success no matter where we started.
