Mother Teresa – Do It Anyway

Mother Teresa - Do It Anyway

Thank you Michelle Mielke for sharing this for so many to hear and grow from on Saturday night’s LIFE live event in Whitewater:

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
― Mother Teresa

LIFE

A very influential teacher, Ann Kerkenbush, shared this with me in eighth grade.  I hung on to it, as she recommended, for a time in the future when I may need it or it would be fitting to use again.  Little did I know that she had delivered a little clue of our destiny that day.  The LIFE business and community have made and eternal impact on us and so many others!  I shared this last night at the open meeting and wanted to put it here for those who asked for a copy.  Have a great day!

Life is ~

     a gift * open it

     a joy * share it

     a pleasure * have some

     a game * play it

     a ball (yes an orange round ball – okay I added that part) * catch it

     a joke * laugh

     an experience * live it

     an offer * accept it

     a dream * make it 

                          come true
