I’m afraid I have come up empty this morning. Nothing is wrong….but the mornings are too dark even for an early riser. A friend passed away after a complicated life. I am wondering where I will muster up my next hit of inspiration. And then along comes Mother Theresa, with this:
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.
