just show up...

Sometimes, the best thing you can do is the thing you want least to do.

When getting out bed seems like it is more than you can do ... get up anyway.
When you don't want to put on any makeup ... put it on anyway.
When you'd rather wear your pajamas than put on a business skirt ... put on the skirt anyway.
When leaving the house to look for a job is just too depressing ... go look anyway.

Because you never know when today might be the day.


The Paradoxical Commandments
by Dr. Kent M. Keith

"People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.
If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.
The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas 
can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.
People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.
People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.
Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway."


  1. And keep a stock of laughter in the cupboard. With the bandaids.

    1. I had to think on this for a while, but yes, you are right. When we learn to laugh ... not only at what happens in life but at ourselves ... things are so much easier. And bandaids because there will be hurts along the way, but with some love and laughter ... they can heal.
