Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. As I have shared with you in the past I like quotes. Quotes remind me of what I already know to be true or encourage me to stay true to my mission and vision. Recently I have been reading and thinking about many of the quotes attributed to Mother Teresa of Calcutta. One particular quote I would like to share with you at this time.
“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 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.” Mother Teresa
Her words inspire me to stay committed to my mission and vision in life regardless…because in the final analysis – as she poignantly stated – “It is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.” Her words encourage me to be steady in my acts of kindness and the way that I live my life, because – in time – my life will reflect how I treated the people who God brought into my life.
