THOUGHTS ON THURSDAY
Today I am starting what I hope will become a regular Thursday blog. I hope to share with you on Thursdays some bit of inspiration that spoke to me during the previous week. I hope you will share with me your inspirations too.
I had gone out of my way the past couple of weeks to be kind to a friend only to find out that my kindness didn’t stop them from acting selfishly. I was reminded of these words from Mother Theresa.
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, 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 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.
