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.
DO IT ANYWAY
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;
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, 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.
