Words to Live By...

Written on the wall in Mother Teresa's home:

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. Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend your years creating, others 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 best you have, and it will 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.

Found on this amazing blog

Oh my God Rachel this is so inspiring!!! I never knew this was written on Mother Theresa's home wall!

Small sayings like this really make us think, don't they? I mean..sometimes I get really sad and down when some people are mad to me without a reason...I should be happy for what I've accomplished and who I've become..

Thank you Rachel..for reminding me that it isn't between me and them anyway.
