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;
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
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!!
