My walk to practice.
The verse below was reportedly written on the wall of Mother Teresa's home for children in Calcutta, India, and is widely attributed to her. Some sources say the verse was also written on the wall in Mother Teresa's own room. In any case, the association with Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity has made this verse popular worldwide. The verse is based on a composition originally by Dr. Kent Keith, but much of the second half has been re-written in a more spiritual way.
People are often unreasonable, irrational, 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 unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.
Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today will often be forgotten.
Do good anyway.
Give the best you have and it will never be enough.
Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

Fun day skydiving as I was traveling through Africa. I am a tad bit scared of heights, I had the sniffles and my skydiving instructor was adorable. (2002)
