Can't we all...be smart?

"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 of us do this daily? We are all smart in our own way, but we can't all be smart in EVERY way. Take time to discover what you are amazing at, and don't worry about what you aren't so great at...that's why someone else is amazing at it!


The above quote was in a magazine I was reading....and then it led to reading about empowering children. I enjoyed this read ... 
"Gone are the days where parents solely want their kids to get "good jobs" but now we want them to have rewarding lives! It is a shift of epic proportions."
Isn't it true though? I don't so much dream a future for my children that includes what I feel they should be, or where they should go to school....but I dream of them being content, confident, giving members of society.

Parenting seems to be a long term science experiment. There are a trillion variables and we aren't sure which ones will actually work or which ones might harm, but in the end we just hope it earns us a blue ribbon and doesn't blow up in our face.

Oh please don't let me do anything that blows up my children!!!
