Forty years: Number eight.

Continuing on in my "Forty Years Series", here is thought number eight ... yes, number eight. I've been busy. I don't think I'll make it to number forty before I turn 41. We'll see.

No matter how hard you try, you will not please everyone.

People will take your best intentions wrong. Some people will even expect you to be super-human, and fault you when you are not.

Maybe you've made mistakes in the past. Haven't we all? Even still, some people will forget that they too have made mistakes, and hold yours against you.

So what do you do? As long as you've done your best to seek restitution, just let it go. Focus on pleasing God, not man. And by all means, do not do the same to others!! Allow them to be themselves. So often we are 'let down' or 'disappointed' by someone because they do not meet up to OUR expectations, but really, that's not their fault, it's ours!

Love God and love man. It's really just that simple.
