Do it Anyway

I was talking with the a friend the other day when she told me that its better to not try  because you won't be disappointed. Better to avoid the situation to avoid pain. I adamantly refused that life is not supposed to be lived like that. How... boring and passive your life would be. How... not like LIFE.

At this point, I would like to share some verses written by Mother Teresa.

"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.
Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.
Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.
Create anyway.
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."

You see, life is not about what others think or what others may do to you. Its about how you treat life and build your relationship with God because at the end of the day, its just you.... and God.

This post is dedicated to my duty mates. :-)
