Happy MONDAY! TGIM! QUOTE OF THE DAY: 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 may 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. — Mother Teresa THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Sometimes in life you don’t want to do things but you have to do things anyway. For example, sometimes working out is hard. Do it anyway Sometimes loving other people is hard. Do it anyway. Sometimes working on yourself is hard. Do it anyway. Sometimes being a parent is hard.
