I have always loved this quote, but today got me thinking about it more than usual:
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.
I don't write this blog as a popularity contest to see how many hits I get in a day.
My only motive is to spread the happiness and beauty that I've found in Life
And to keep an untraditional record of my life for my children to enjoy someday.
I honestly just love the release of writing down my thoughts
Because somehow they come out a lot clearer on a page than they do in my head.
With that said, I have only one favor to ask of you, as my friends:
"If you can't say something nice, don't say nothin' at all."
~Thumper - Disney's Bambi~
I am sincerely sorry if anything I write is ever offensive to you.
I honestly don't write things for any specific audience.
I write about Life, the way I've come to know it, in all of its beauty
And I hope to share that with you in any way possible,
Because it's important to know that you deserve to enjoy Life every day.
That is all . . .
