Welcome to this edition of The Metro Message.....I hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day weekend filled with fun and relaxation. As you enjoyed the cookouts or holiday shopping, remember that you have worked hard this year and you deserve to enjoy yourself, your family, and your friends. We must always remember we work to live not live to work. You must recharge those batteries and get your head together so you can finish the rest of the year strong. The work will never end. There will always be more to do, but don't ever forget what you have already accomplished and why and for who.
Somebody said it couldn't be done,But he with a chuckle repliedThat "maybe it couldn't," but he would be oneWho wouldn't say so till he'd tried.So he buckled right in with the trace of a grinOn his face. If he worried he hid it.He started to sing and he tackled the thing,That couldn't be done, and he did it.
Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that;At least no one has ever done it";But he took off his coat and he took of his hat,And the first thing we knew he'd begun it.With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin, Without any doubting or quiddit,He started to sing and he tackled the thingThat couldn't be done, and he did it.
There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,There are thousands to prophesy failure;There are thousands to point out to you, one by one,The dangers that wait to assail you.But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,Just take off your coat and go to it;Just start to sing as you tackle the thingThat "cannot be done," and you'll do it.
