Eleanor Roosevelt, Famous Quote Friday


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

– Eleanor Roosevelt

 We grow up with people who teach us right and wrong. When we get older we get to decide right and wrong for ourselves. The older we get the more most of us struggle with changes or new things, most of the time we are forced into the changes. Ultimately if you have an idea in your head or your heart, don’t keep it there. Let it out, explore it, share it, DO IT!

No matter how right or wrong you are there will always be people to love what you are doing and people who oppose. Even when you are doing the right thing you will be criticized for how you are doing it. We live in a world where people are quicker to tell you what you are doing wrong then to see what you are doing right. I fall victim to this too. In my aggressive attempt to be positive it is ironic that I will see the little bit of negative among the positive and focus on that. I am making every effort to change that, as to how, perhaps that will have to be in another blog post. But, you know what? We all see everything different from everyone else. This is what makes us original this is what makes us human. We can choose to see negative or we can choose to see positive. We can choose to be negative or choose to be positive. We can choose to respond negatively or choose to respond positively. So I say if your heart says go for it, you should go for it with every bit of effort you have. With determination you are going to learn to plow thru those negative critiques and recognize the ones that may actually be helpful. Take your path, listen to those that agree and support you, let it feed your heart and make it stronger to also listen to those that don’t really care and oppose you. Just remember let your heart be your final decision not your head.
