Give me a few whys

I could be the person you want me to be,
If you'd just let me.
Instead I'll be the person I want to be,
Because I'm finding out that's enough for me.

(Sigh) I needed that.

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 some 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, they 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 God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

If a picture's worth a thousand words....

then I'd say this one's worth two thousand.

Happy Best Friends Day
to my best friend
who's seen me at my best
and definitely at my worst
Thanks for always being there for me
