"Anyway" by Mother Teresa

I have a little bit of time on my hands right now so I thought about writing in my blog. I have been so bad about writing lately and I want, I NEED to...write more. It's very cathartic for me.

Here's a poem by Mother Teresa that is inscribed on the wall of her home for children in Calcutta:

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.


Have a good one!!
