My Thought for the Day…March 23, 2019

“Everybody is a genius.  But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

-Albert Einstein

How many human potentials have been cut short because they were different?  How many great contributions to humanity were never realized for this very reason?  Every child has genius in them, unless it is snuffed out by those who would lack understanding.

In 1983 psychologist Howard Gardner defined 9 different types of intelligence, 9!!  They are:

 

What a wonderful and productive world it will be when our institutions can identify and nurture these intelligences in everybody!

Have a great Saturday!

My Thought for the Day…March 12, 2019

“Find out who you are and be that person.  That’s what your soul was put on this earth to be.

Find that truth, live that truth and everything else will come.”

-Ellen DeGeneres

Easier said than done, but something I aspire to everyday!  I do find that I really enjoy creating this inspirational and motivational media.  It satifies me on multiple fronts.

Seeking out the quotes satifies the researcher in me.  Creating the finished piece satifies the artist in me.  And releasing it to the world in hopes that it brightens someone’s day satifies something I cannot quite name.  Maybe it satifies my soul, maybe I am finaly geting a clue to what I am here to do.

Have a great day!

 

My Thought for the Day…March 4, 2019

“Life isn’t about finding yourself.  Life is about creating yourself.”

-George Bernard Shaw

I chose this quote today as I contemplated the creation of this blog and possibly diverging from my original career plans of Web Development, considering, just what it is that brings me joy?  Art and design bring me joy.  They always have, but I never thought I could make a living doing it.

 

That is why I chose to change careers and to pursue Web Development back in late 2015.  I figured Web Development had some design capacity to it, and should provide me with marketable skills as I have always loved tech, computers, and languages.  I enjoyed it immensely at first, when it was really more about design that coding.  I don’t necesarily mind the coding, there is a great satisfaction in making something work or finding the bug or error that broke your page, but I don’t love it.

 

After I graduated this past summer I fell into a bit of gray period, all the jobs I saw were seeking experienced developers, I became overwhelmed with what I didn’t know.  I graduated my program with a 4.0 grade point average, and was on the dean’s list each semester, surely I must know something!

 

I even lost the urge to try to fill my deficits, something I never had a problem with before.  I used to love to seek out tutorials on things I didn’t know or to further my skills, I’d wake and be excited to find something new to learn or to work on each day.  I was seriously a tutorial junkie for a while!  I even thought of creating a site called “Tutorial Junkie” just to showcase that work!

 

A couple of months ago I decided to revisit the social media accounts I had set up for a my dog for the first website I ever created.  They were more of a joke then, but I had just read an article about your dog becoming an influencer on Instagram, and I thought why not?  I have a really cute and photogenic dog.  So I started to to develop her still empty Instagram account, @fionapuppypie.  I loved it and quickly grew her followers from 3 to well over 300 in about 2 months, in less than 4 months she is now at 808 followers!

 

I know, I am a dork.  But I learned a lot, and I also learned how to create interesting content, how to enage followers, and create loyalty through developing meanigful relationships, which I seriously value.

 

So where to now?  The future is wide open!

“Be youself, everyone else is already taken.”

-Oscar Wilder

I chose this quote for today because sometimes we all need that reminder that we are sufficient the way we are.  Sure we all have areas we can improve, but trying to be or act like someone else, someone you think the world needs or wants is not needed.

The world needs YOU, and your unique talents and personality just the way you are.
