Do It Anyway

I copied this post from MckMama because I thought it was a very moving way to look at things in life. Often time we are stuck between right and wrong and our final decision is based on how we think others will look back on us.

"This amazing series of quotes, often attributed to Mother Teresa but actually written Dr. Kent Keith, has long inispired me. My hope is that it might inspire you, too.

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 true enemies;
succeed anyway.

If you are honest people may cheat you;

be honest 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 end, it is between you and God;
it was never between you and them anyway."
