On the weekend I took some time to set up an Archives page and put all the back entries there.
From now on, I’ll archive the blog every week and start a fresh page. But nothing will be deleted, just check the archives for anything you may have missed.
I remember reading this poem years ago, but I had forgotten about it until I stumbled on it again today. Everyone needs to be reminded of this every once in awhile I think, so here it is:
People are often unreasonable, illogical
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;
If you are honest and frank,
People may cheat you:
Be honest and frank anyway
What you spend years building,
Someone could destroy overnight:
If you find serenity and happiness,
People 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.
— Mother Theresa
