Can’t make EVERYONE happy.

“Do what you feel in your heart to be right – for you’ll be criticized anyway.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

This quote came to mind today mainly because so many people are quick to criticize the weather people when we should all keep in mind what their job really entails.  The human race, some more than others, love to criticize others no matter what their job, opinion or actions.  This will always be… that is why I like the Roosevelt quote.  She is so right.  There will always be those who hate on you.  Haters gonna hate.

If you look at any weather forecaster and their record of predictions, we should already know they cannot do their job to perfection (WHO REALLY CAN!  There is always room for improvement!).  THEY are not IN CONTROL of what the weather does.  They can only guess, but calling them Weather Guessers just doesn’t sound right.  Forecasters try to predict correctly with tools and calculations, but sometimes that task is like trying to lasso the wind.   This is definitely true in our part of the world.  Texas weather is crazy!

We are in the middle of a snow day.  It’s a freezing cold, stay at home from school kind of snow day.  This is the kind of day students, no matter what age, LOVE.   From the wide-eyes of a 10 year old at the site of a winter wonderland to the actuality of sleeping in of a 16 year old, it’s all love.  I, as a teacher, would rather not miss a day of work only to have to make it up later, but I must say, I do love seeing the excitement of my children.  (birth and non-birth ones)

The weather here in Northeast Texas as much of Texas is so unpredictable.  Sometimes it makes me crazy, but most of the time, as with any situation, I REJOICE IN IT!  The snow today is beautiful.  I don’t want to touch it, but it’s beautiful.

I totally admit, I’m not a cold weather lover, but without it, how would I really know that the Texas 90 plus degree summer days are my favorite?  I wouldn’t.  If we didn’t have dark days, how would we truly appreciate the light?  We wouldn’t!  If there weren’t valleys, how could we be in awe of the mountains?  I think you get where I’m going.

I’m just trying to say, give this day and everyday a chance.  Stop being quick to criticize and more quick to find the silver lining, the bright spot…THE JOY!  LOVE, don’t hate.

It is TOTALLY true that you can’t make everyone happy, but you can make YOU happy…just by your attitude.  Find the happiness and joy, rejoice in THAT.  Change your attitude even tho, EVEN THEN, you…

Can’t make EVERYONE happy.




“Haters always gonna hate.”  I actually said this today!  I know this is one of those sayings which has been overused and perhaps meant in many different ways, BUT TO ME…It means, no matter what you do, how you do it, who it benefits or how much good it may bring to others…THERE IS ALWAYS those who hate you for it.  They will talk about you, try and persuade others to think badly of you and just plain hate you.  It’s part of life.  There is no reason to dwell on the haters.  It does no good to give them any of your time.

You may not see it, but sometimes their gripes and groans stir up more good than they ever thought it would or let alone wanted it to do.  THAT PART is the best part.  They end up shining a light on THE GOOD that was done!  HEE HEE!

Haters gonna hate, but loving is the best of all.  Do what you do, in love—

THAT’S ALL YOU GOTTA DO!  Whether someone approves of it or not–makes absolutely no difference.



Don’t be a Hater


((one of my posts today on FB…))

John 13:34-35 “Let me give you a new command: Love one another. In the same way I loved you, you love one another. This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples—when they see the love you have for each other.”

Don’t be a hater. (even to the haters!)

This was the main part of my daily audio Bible reading today that just JUMPED out at me.  I’ve heard it, read it and seen it a ton of times.  I believe I’ve even blogged on it before.  After my blog yesterday, I believe God was truly reminding me that no matter what–no matter how much I see people around me spew and sling their evil mess all about–I still must (IT IS A COMMAND) love them.

Some days, like yesterday, this command was so hard to obey.  Love that?!?  Ha!  Yes, the Lord tells us.  This was a command out of the MOUTH OF JESUS!  We are to do it.  It’s not a option.  *Sigh*  We don’t have to love the evil they stir up and wallow in.  We must love the person–the creation of God.  We are all God’s children and we must love all children of God even when they don’t love us or themselves or basically anything good.  We must love them.  *Sigh* again.

I truly strive to be happy and to do the things God wants me to do.  I’m NOT saying I am successful at this all the time–WHO IS!?  (“throw the first stone”) Lord knows we all have a hard time with this command, but that doesn’t mean we can’t continuously try and do a better job of it every day.  We can!   Just like anything, the more you practice it, the easier it gets.

Don’t be a Hater!  (ESPECIALLY to the haters—they need love the MOST!)
