Good Morning My Loves,
Today I would like to share with you a poem by Mother Teresa, Do It 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 honest and frank, people may cheat you; be honest anyway. What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; build anyway. 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.
I loved her words. Regardless how people treat or mistreat you, never let their actions determine your response. Don’t ever let anyone’s hate, negativity, drama, ignorance, pity party, excuses keep you from being the absolute best person you can be. What people think of you is their opinion not yours. Never rely on someone else for your happiness or self worth. Only you are responsible for yourself. People will always have opinions of the decisions you make. Never shelf your dreams because someone else is not strong enough to live theirs. Be the shining star that you are because your happiness was never about pleasing them anyway.
Today be encouraged to do what’s right anyway. Don’t let the attitudes and the looks from others stop you from being great. Never give anyone control over your blessings. You were born with the ability to change someone else’s life don’t waste it. Be that one match…it only takes one to start a flame. Get out there and do great things. Remember you get what you put out in the world. If not you then who? If not now, when? Surround yourself with beautiful souls and spread love. Today, be blessed and a blessing to others. We only get one life to leave our mark. I know you can do this because…..Great Is In You!
