Soul Sunday

People are often unreasonable and self-centered. 
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. 
Be kind anyway. 
If you are honest, people may cheat you.
 Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. 
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.
 Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. 
Give your best anyway. 
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. 
It was never between you and them anyway.

These words by Mother Theresa are a good reminder of how to live life.   Yet actually living them is another story for most.   In those moments where others  or life does people wrong is possibly the hardest to forgive, be kind and so on.  But rising against the negativity, finding a way to shine a positiveness on those very moments might just be the most important life lessons of the soul.  

  We cannot control other people or even life but we can control how we  feel, react and respond.  There will always be bad, negative and selfish people....there will always be hardships  of some form or another in everyone's life....but we must somehow find a way to find the good, be the good and do good anyway.

Out of clutter, find simplicity.
From discard, find harmony.
In the middle of every difficulty,
Lies opportunity.
