I know it is.
I do. My head knows it is. Rationally, logically, and literally it is nothing more than characters on a screen, right?
But emotionally it is me.
But to hear someone tell me that this, THIS that you are reading is JUST A…
The first thing you are taught when you begin to write or desire to take on the endeavour of being a writer is to never be “Married” to your work.
There will be much editing, cutting, deleting, changing, etc.
It is NOT your Baby.
Again, I KNOW that…but in a way, for me, this is Me.
If you read this…it hurt.
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.
~ Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta
I MISS YOU!!! ♥
They don’t understand 🙂 I do ask myself whether I should detach myself a bit though!
Then the rest of us would not be able to travel vicariously through you and not just see such amazing places, but not be able to revel in such beautiful narrations!!!
DON’T YOU DARE!!!!!!!!!! 😉
Aaw, thank you 🙂
Okay… I’m like what’s going on? Multiple trips through here and I still can’t figure out what’s up. Help? There are men out here blogging too friend… and with much apologies, I have to confess I don’t know what you’re referring to. Who used the painful words, “It’s just blogging?” I must share with you though that I once watched a movie where we bloggers were accused of producing graffiti with words. 😦 Any how… continue glorifying God with your words, good friend… that’s really what matters in the end. Blessings!
Don’t worry about figuring it out…if you do, you may wind up as ODD as me 😉
I am ever grateful for your time. The time to read and comment!
That, in my humble opinion, destroys the accusation that we are producing graffiti with words…
BUT in the defence of graffiti, there is some very, very good Graffiti Art!!
So There 😛 In their face 😉
God Love You and keep on Sharing as well!!
