Why Mother Teresa was the Effing Bomb.

“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.”
— Mother Teresa

Yeah, I know…a rare moment of seriousness, or whatever.  But sometimes when life gets you down, no matter what your religious beliefs (or lack thereof), you must remember to persevere.  It’s not about receiving something back for doing good.  It’s about doing good.  I have never done something selfless and not felt amazing for it.  I may have never seen the reward for my actions, but I know that there was reward, piling up somewhere in the ether like coins in a Mario Bros game.

And one day, I’m going to be swimming in coins, bitches!!


Remember today to do something good.  Take it from Mama T.
