Anyway Poem – Mother Theresa

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 your God;
It was never between you and them anyway.


I heard this poem yesterday and it really hit home for me. For me it meant to continue to be who I am regardless of what others may think, say, feel, or do. In the end, my life and all I have or haven’t done will be between myself and God. That’s it. So, I will continue to push forward and be who I am no matter what.

People talk most of what they know nothing about.

 Wise men speak because they have something to say; fools because they have to say something.

Have a great day folks. 🙂 I know I sure will!!





In order to change you must know what you can change and when you have the chance to change, do it and understand why you did. – Amos

On a journey to become a better person, change is more than necessary; it is essential. I believe that progress is a process and if true progress is to be made then some change must occur. I think he’s saying that to grow you should be aware of what changes need to be made in your life, thoughts, and actions. And instead of being afraid of change like most of us are, stop thinking about it and just do it. When you do make the change, understand what made you change and why you decided to finally make the change.

Life is a journey and you can never be absolutely sure where you’ll end up. But, that’s where the fun is, isn’t it??

I guess I’ll find out.
