In The Final Analysis...
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered; ...Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind and caring, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; ...Be kind and caring anyway.
If you are motivated and focused, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; ...Take the initiative anyway.
If you are open and giving, people may cheat you; ...Be open and giving anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; ...Build anyway.
If you find joy through purpose, someone may get jealous; ...Find purpose anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; ...Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have to give. Although it may never be enough; ...Give the best you have to give- anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God; It was never between you and them... anyway.
I need to be reminded of this on a daily basis or I myself will destroy the good I attempt by my responses. How about you?
I have no enemies in the flesh; only lessons clothed in people skin. I am learning about me.
I pray your day is awesome.
