Simon Bradbury, one of my new friends from the UK who I met a few weeks ago when I was across the pond, sent me this in reply to last week’s MOJO. Simon admittedly is not really a very religious person, but stated that some of the philosophies shared by religious people are very relevant and inspiring. The following is a great example of how we should all act and live our lives. It is a poem written by Mother Teresa. Thanks for sharing Simon
Mother Teresa's Anyway Poem
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 world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
Do it anyway and make it a great week!
