For anyone feeling down

Here is a little something that I wanted to share that I always read when I'm feeling down about something that has happened, a person that has treated me unfairly, anything gives me a little hope and lifts my spirits...hope it does for you as well

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 true enemies; Succeed anyway
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway
What you spend years building, someone could 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
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your HP; It was never between you and them anyway.

I have no idea who wrote this but I find it inspiring.

This is the third time I have read this in the last two days. Twice posted by friends on facebook, one did attribute it to Mother Theresa. Hmmmm.... seems like the Universe wants me to see this for some reasin, OK, I am listening.
