Ralphie, my boy!

Updated

I've strayed a little in my intentions for my blog... not quite as inspiring of joy as I first envisioned, so when I saw a twitter post today with a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson that I loved, I started looking at a quote site and here are a couple for today that really inspired me.

1. “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Or as the country music duo Big and Rich put it- " It's hard to get around in a six foot town when you're ten feet tall!"   

Struggling to do this every day as I'm looking for a new position and interviewing.  But if they don't hire the real me, how happy can I be there?  So- I just gotta be me!

2. “Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Yes- let's all let go of the nonsense, shall we?!! Love it!

3. “It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

I love my old friends!  You know who you are!  (although I am willing to be stupid with new friends too-it's not quite the same level of stupid)!

4. “A child is a curly, dimpled lunatic.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Yup, Ralphie says it best! 

How could I possibly have forgotten this one??!!!  see #3 above- all I can say!

“Scatter joy!”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
