Guiding Words

     I am humbled to be a part of this world.  The last few days have reminded me of the impact each of us has on everyone around us.  I have always been honest in my own truth, so I guess I forgot that there are people new to my journey.  I am humbled to hear that my story has inspired other people and made a difference in their lives.
      I believe everything happens for a reason.  All of those dark times made me a better person.  I truly believe that God and the angels saved me that day and I dedicate my life to making a difference for others.
     Sometimes it is hard to be honest with our imperfections and tragedies and commonness.  But as I look to my heroes for inspiration and guidance, Mother Theresa's words guide me.

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 will 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.
