IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

Anyway

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 some true enemies.

Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you.

Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight.

Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, others might be jealous.

Be happy anyway.

The good you do today will often be forgotten.

Be good anyway.

Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough.

Give the world your best, anyway.

You see, in the final analysis it is between you and God.

It was never between you and them, anyway.

 

This was shared by Glenda Mc who told their story today. I thought you would enjoy it.

I saw that on a letter-sized piece of paper today at Lambda Center. It was a copy, but had not been mimeographed.
