When sorrow finds us

Recently I lost a very dear family member. A man who loved everyone with all his heart. A man generous of spirit, one who gave his all to mankind.

A truly evolved soul.

I know I am not the only one who has lost loved ones. If this current time has taught us anything, the headline should read — “how to survive when you lose big!”.

Many have lost so much, some have lost all they had, while each of us has lost something.

We have lost our innocence in the world around us, our freedom, our sense of security, and our familiarity with the way we once lived.

It is safe to say that life will never be the same again

One day, hopefully, a long time from now, we will vacate the house we reside in. The essence of who we are will return to its creator. What we have left behind are just memories.

What will they say about you?

I recently spent some time pondering what remains when we leave this space.

What we leave behind

  1. All the good you have done

2. How you made others feel

3. Were you helpful and kind

4. How did you spend your time

5. What Motivated you

6. How you used the gifts you were given

7. Did you love your family and friends

What will your legacy be?

The lesson

We all hope we will be remembered in the most favorable light. We may think that we are doing all things that are good and right. Others may beg to differ. Take time out to review your life with honesty. Give someone you trust and respect the freedom to give you an honest life review.

What will your eulogy tell about the way you lived your life

What will you be remembered for?

Keep in mind what legacy you want to leave behind. You are the author of your story, there is time to change the trajectory of the narrative.

You can make the decision of how you want your story told. No one else has lived your life, so today, while you are still alive, spend some time and rewrite the end.
