“Do It Anyway” Prayer

Witnessing my mother chill for endless hours from her high fevers due to infections for successive days, there’s an app for that. Kidding. But I did download prayer apps, and recite all the prayers listed in there while sitting beside my mother who was stiff from chilling at the hospital last week. I then became prayerful. (I was not schooled in a Catholic school all throughout my life so there’s my defensive mode.)

Anyhow, relatives gave me a lot of prayer booklets and novenas which I go through on a daily basis. Some of the prayers became my favorite. This one, I haven’t really read this to my nanay but it’s a nice motivational read.

Mother Teresa can be the Saint for Entrepreneurs / Creators.

 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.
