Anyway

For some reason these words of Mother Teresa's have been on my mind of late.  Maybe you've seen them.  I always find them a helpful reminder of what I'm we're supposed to be doing in the world. Enjoy.   

People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered. 
Love them anyway. 
If you do good, people may accuse you of selfish motives.
Do good anyway.
If you are successful, you may win false friends and true enemies. 
Succeed anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway. 
Honesty and transparency make you vulnerable. 
Be honest and transparent anyway.
What you spend ears building may be destroyed overnight. 
Build anyway.
People who really want help may attack you if you help them.
Help them anyway.
Give the world the best you have and you may get hurt. 
Give the world your best anyway. 

- Mother Teresa, Meditations From a Simple Path
