Yes, I know everyone out in the bloggerverse has written their quintessential "New Year's Resolution" or "New Year's Goals" posts and truth be told I may do just that soon. I tend to get really pensive about things like that and also make goals together with my husband. That way we can keep each other in check but we haven't talked too much in depth about these things yet so that's why that post isn't here yet. In the mean time, I came across this famous saying by Mother Teresa that has completely inspired me and will stay in the back of my mind as I journey through the new year. Though I'm not a hundred percent clear on my goals and resolutions this will definitely be a big part of it:
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 God; It was never between you and them anyway.
