This morning as I was enjoying my morning cup of decaf and the cool air that has finally reached Phoenix (but soon to leave again…getting back up to the 90’s by Sunday), I was browsing through this awesome Christmas catalog from “The Lakeside Collection.”
One thing my eyes spotted was a framed print entitled “Do It Anyway.” It was so beautiful and I thought to myself that everyone should hear this. If we read this out loud each morning it would probably help us to get through the day with an extremely positive outlook. I then noticed the most important thing, it’s written by Mother Teresa! Wow…it’s really inspiring, great food for the soul to begin your day. I just had to share this with you:
“Do It Anyway”
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 an 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.
We only live here on earth once so that is why it’s important to live life to the fullest. Enjoy life! Be happy! Sing; laugh; dance; play…. and most of all do what you can to be healthy! There are many things that are out of our control, but we can control what we put into our bodies. A healthy mind and body will make the difference to the quality of life you give to yourself, as well as to those you love and those who love you. The ME-gan Lifestyle will help you accomplish this!

Love and peace to all.
