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 unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies;
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you;
Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating others 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 best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

Hello Ancella Marie,
Thank you for sharing this wih us. It was kind of you to take the time to be an encourager this AM.
It's Monday and heaven knows, there will be enough to frighten and discourage even the most stout hearted of us out there this week.
There will be some who will say (at least in their minds) that we do not need one more cliche or platitude posted from Mother Teresa or anyone else.
But I think Mother Teresa would say to you, "Continue to encourage anyway."
