Midweek Motivation

I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.- Martin Luther King

 

Ok, so this is not strictly speaking motivation to get us through a bad week.  But sometimes these things just need saying don’t they? Occasionally, I think we get a little bit caught up in hating.  Some people seem to actively seek out things, and people, to hate.

Why though? Does it make us feel better to criticise others? Does it satisfy us to hate, lash out and correct people? To make them feel small? To put them down? Maybe for a moment, but not long term.  It’s human nature, I get that.  Life would be exceptionally boring if we all had the same thoughts and opinions.  If nobody disagreed, and we were all going in the same direction.  Can we live and let live? Accept the differences of others? Ignore the bad, and encourage the good?

Let’s all be kind today.  The End.

If anyone can provide good advice it is the late, great Albert Einstein.  I simply cannot sum up his life in a few sentences.  He was a fascinating genius, whose scientific theories shaped how we understand our world today.   He was a lifelong pacifist, and believed that ‘peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding’.  Our lives would be so different if Einstein had not been given the brain that he was.  We have his scientific discoveries to thank for GPS; TVs and the remotes that control them; mobile phones; digital cameras, and computers. I possibly wouldn’t be here blogging without Albert Einstein.  Think about that for a minute.

Dr. Maya Angelou had an incredible life.  Born in the 1920s in St. Louis, Missouri, she became a young single mother shortly after graduating from high school. Despite having to work several jobs to support herself and her son, she still managed a successful career in the ’50s as a singer and performer.  This was followed by a stint in Egypt, and Ghana, in the ’60s working as a writer.  Angelou then went on to pen 36 books, 30 of which were bestseller.  The first of her books – I know Why the Caged Bird Sings – was the first non-fiction bestseller written by an African American woman.  What followed was a screenplay; an Emmy nomination and a Tony nomination for two of her acting roles; and several autobiographies and multiple poetry collections.

This is just the tip of the iceberg; Maya Angelou had many more accomplishments – a truly amazing woman.

 

Have a great week, and remember ‘You alone are enough…’
