Stay the course, by Demetrius Arnold

There are many things, people, or scenarios that may put you out of the seemingly right direction that you feel your life should be heading. But I beseech you to stay the course. You will have both let downs and defeats. But the main thing is to realize what or who took you off your course and get back on track, if your a struggling addict, alcoholic, or whatever your “detour” is ask for help. Don’t be ashamed to seek accountability to help your course stay as unobstructed as possible. If it’s people blocking your path, re-route and go around them…but remember that road(person) and avoid the construction (destruction) zone. I wish that we as a society could spend more time encouraging and lifting one another up out of the mire instead of rejoicing in a man or woman’s downfall. I ask that you with a troubled history (and who reading this doesn’t have one) move on from it, those of us that are now labeled felons will find it tougher to move on…..But stay the course. Don’t be bitter at those that seemingly lift their nose up at you, but use that to make you better. Remember everyone isn’t always for you. And you have to decide is your course big enough for your “stuff” as well as any hitchhikers. Always seek sound advice and wisdom. The main thing is let no man or woman take you off your course..

People are often unreasonable and self-centered…
FORGIVE THEM ANYWAY
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives
BE KIND ANYWAY
If you are honest, people may cheat you
BE HONEST ANYWAY
If you find happiness, people may be jealous
BE HAPPY ANYWAY
The good you do today, may be forgotten
DO GOOD ANYWAY
Give the world your best and it may never be enough
GIVE YOUR BEST ANYWAY
for you see, in the end is between YOU AND GOD
It was never between you and them …. Mother Teresa

Food for thought and please be kind…..
