A New Year's mantra

In this New Year, I hope I can live with this kind of abandon. I choose to trust the One who holds my heart and keeps me.


by Mother Theresa

People are often unreasonable, irrational, 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 sincere, people may cheat you;

Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, someone could destroy overnight;

Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous;

Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten;

Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it will never be enough;

Give the world the best you've got anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God;

It was never between you and them anyway.


  1. Wow. I love that. Mind if I steal it from you?

    Happy new year! =)

  2. Well, of course I don't mind {it's not really mine anyway}.

    Happy New Year to you too! See you soon.
