Do It Anyway

The lovely Marta shared this on her site recently.. big props Marta, as this is so simple, touching and shiny. The perfect poem to share here on this wee shiny blog.
(and take it's advice!)
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;
Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere, people may cheat you;
Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, someone 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 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.
