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 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.

Two kind souls have been sharing Mother Teresa's inspiring words to me. I saw in a friend's wall post a photo of mails with a Mother Teresa stamp....I told myself, "I want one too!" But I was too shy to ask her. Since Viridian's theme for this Sunday is 'anything you wish', I scanned through my postcards and wow!! I've got one Mother Teresa stamp :D

Check out Viridian's Postcard Blog for more stamps post. Have a blessed Sunday everyone. :)



  1. This is a wonderful poem. I can almost hear it set to music. Thank you for joining us this week.

  2. It is usually a good idea to be nice, anyway.

  3. Nice.
    I don't have any stamps or cards from India. Yet.
