Freckles thought for this day

A sister girl shared this with me and it was more than though provoking.  I found this passage to be most appropriate to share. 
Here is to be a you today....

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 to build, someone may destroy overnight.
Build anyway.


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.

i swear i have tried to comment on this same post a million times. almost to the point where i don't wanna comment anymore on it.

i'm going to try one more time.

i like this post. to me it encouraging because usually doing the right thing or what i like to call, "the good thing" is always discouraged and never reaps the benefits that doing the wrong thing does. meaning i can not cheat on a test & fail. yet hold my head up high while working at burger king. or i can cheat on a test and get an A..and get into a real good school and hold my head up high.

i know being good is it's own reward, but you always feel so lame being good. lol

Starrla, thanks girl. When come across little encouragements/ inspirations that impact me, I try to pass them on. I LOVED this one!!! It's a true testament to becoming comfortable in your own skin and no matter how LAME, NEVER get tired of doing the right thing. We only have one life to live and we should live it to our full potential.

TUN, you are too funny. I am glad that you chose to give it another try. lol. The only impactful judgements are the ones from God and yourself. Everyone else is secondary though some feel the need to be valitaed by others. Doing the right thing is never LAME.
