I found this on my SIL's blog. I hope she doesn't mind that I'm borrowing it, but I really enjoyed this and wanted to share it with you.
"People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered:Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people 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.
What you spend years building, someone would 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."
Just imagine what our world would be like if we all tried to be our best.
