I love this quote. It’s by, as you can see, a very intelligent man. It was said that he had an IQ of 160. That is a number to tell you about his “smartness.” I can only imagine his attitude, demeanor and wit. Reading some of his quotes and other things that have been written about him makes me think he definitely had a mixture of book smart, street smart and social smart. BLESSINGS!
Anyway, THIS QUOTE below is one of those where I’m like, “RIGHT??!!??”
The person who illustrated this quote is very talented as well. If you want to look at some of their other works, you can click here. She has a ton of beautiful things!
WHO SAYS ARTISTS AREN’T INTELLIGENT? Albert Einstein, one of the smarties himself, didn’t. (or at least that is what this quote says to me)
I am creative. I am artistic. I am intelligent.
“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.
This is my doodle creation for today…
I only write, type or text “LOL” if I’m seriously laughing out loud. I don’t type it any other time. Just saying that so you know I just seriously LOL’d.
One of my former students sent me the pin below on Pinterest. So true!!! And so glad they thought of me when they saw it AND shared.
I did not make this, but I think I will. I love this. I’m so glad GOD changed my heart. I’m so overwhelmed by His gift of Jesus and the NEW LIFE we receive, because HE paid it all. I pray that all will allow their hearts to be transformed! Amen.
This is a Pinterest pin I saw a bit ago! It’s so simple. If we could all do this simple thing, life would be so much HAPPIER…work would more pleasant, people would SMILE MORE!
This is a challenge!
See what happens.
You know, I believe they say if you do the same thing every day for 21 days, it becomes easier to make it a habit.
Why not try it? It’s can’t hurt.
