Do It Anyway

There is a wonderful poem that Mother Teresa wrote that I'd like to share with you. I keep it framed on my desk at work. It has been a true blessing to me - I will it will be to you as well. Enjoy!

Do It Anyway

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered: Forgive them anyway!If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motive; Be kind anyway!If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some 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!

-Mother Teresa
