Where in the world has the last week gone??? Time is flying by faster and faster with every passing day. I accept this, but I don’t particularly care for it 🙂
Today’s Wednesday Words is a writing called “Anyway” attributed to Blessed Teresa of Calcutta (a.k.a. Mother Teresa), a Roman Catholic religious sister and missionary who dedicated her life to serving the poor and the sick.
For me, it serves as yet another reminder to keep less-than-happy things in perspective and to focus on what really matters.
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 sincere, people may cheat you;
Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, 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 end, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
