When we first began this workshop, this was something that we read during a meeting. I might have posted it before, but, I appreciate the sentiment as I really feel that it addresses emotional sobriety, principled living and God consciousness.
I missed our meeting this morning and I am looking forward to “seeing” everyone October 26!
“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;
If you are honest and frank,
people may cheat you;
Be honest anyway.
What you spend years building,
someone could destroy overnight;
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 final analysis,
it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.”
― Mother Teresa
