The question people ask when they are dying is: Will I be remembered?
What they’re asking is “Did I matter?”
What would you like to be remembered for?
This question will guide your life if you let it, and you should.
Otherwise, you’ll be guided by other people’s answers to that question, wondering why you don’t feel at home on your journey.
It’s not your journey, it’s someone elses.
Instead, author your own story.
Build memorable moments.
Make a difference in someone’s day, don’t worry about impacting their life.
Today is enough.
Look up and around.
Open your senses and heart to the world around and within you.
Some things you’ll realise:
- Experiences > Material possessions
- Fulfilment > Security
- Being kind > Being right
- Forgiveness > Grudges
- Dog walks > Netflix
- Following your gut > Following the crowd
- Anger shouldn’t be held within but be careful how you express it.
- Helping yourself allows you to help others.
- You can do anything, but not everything. Choose and then accept.
- Tell people you love that you love them.
The best revenge to death is to experience life.
Whatever that means for you today.
