Day 105 Intelligence is overrated



Today, I was talking to a friend about career changes including being a postal worker or librarian.  She kiddingly said "I can see you yelling at someone asking a stupid question when you were deep in reading."   I can't see that.  I have been around very intelligent people who have difficulty being understood as they go from subject to subject and assume that people understand.  I have had this issue not saying that I am very intelligent.  Then I have been around people who are intelligent in their kindness and trust of others.  They are happy not trying to solve the world's problems but to help in ways they can and enjoy the moment they are in.  Intelligence without kindness can be cruel and can cause divisions between people.  Rather to be intelligent or kind?  I choose the later.  Now my work begins.
