We're Gonna Do It Anyway! Posted on 10 Sep 03:00 , 13 comments

DO IT ANYWAY.

Simple, yet truly words to live by.

Have you ever heard of The Paradoxical Commandments? They were written by Dr. Kent M. Keith in 1968 as part of a booklet for student leaders and people have used these words in countless speeches, articles and songs. Even Mother Teresa thought they were important enough to put up on the wall of her children's home in Calcutta.

Well, we found the perfect shirt (from H&M nonetheless!) that encompasses The Paradoxical Commandments into 3 little words. And we really do use these words in our everyday decisions.

Such as this purple hair decision that Carrie is rocking these days. ;)

You want to do something nice for someone but you won't get recognized, thanked, or appreciated?

DO IT ANYWAY.

You want to stand up for what you believe but you're afraid others will shoot you down?

DO IT ANYWAY.

You wanna dye your hair purple, or pink, or blue but others will think you are crazy?

DO IT ANYWAY.

The moral of the story is, if you never "Do It Anyway", you'll never know what will come of it, change will never occur, and you'll never be truly happy. According to Dr. Keith, the point is the world doesn't make sense, but you can make sense. You can find personal meaning in this crazy world.

The Paradoxical Commandments

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 will 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.
