The Best Plum

A friend gave this to me and I just had to share. I am not sure who the original author is (definitely not me), but the message is so powerful that I hope you are encouraged as well.

The Best Plum

You should learn that you cannot be loved by all people:
You can be the finest plum in the world,
Ripe - juicy - succulent
And offer yourself to all,
But you must remember there will be people
who do not like plums.

You must understand that if you are the World's Finest Plum
And someone you like does not like plums,
You have a choice of becoming a banana.
But you must be warned that if you choose to become a banana,
You will be a second-rate banana.
But you can always be the best plum.

You must realize that if you choose
to be a second-rate banana,
You must remember that
there will be people who do not like bananas.
Futhermore, you can spend your life
trying to become the best banana
(which is impossible if you are a plum)
OR, you can seek again to be the BEST PLUM!!!
