I was reading something earlier today that prompted me to write this little piece...the questioned posed was: What do you want to be remembered for?
I had never thought about that before...have you? After spending a fair share of the day pondering that question, here is my answer:
I would want to be remembered for:
<> Being a good mom, despite my failings. I am not perfect, but I know that I did the best I could.
<> Being the best friend that I could be...always being there when my friends need me, mentally and emotionally.
<> Being compassionate, understanding, forgiving, and gentle spirited.
<> Having touched peoples lives in a positive way...leaving with them a part of me that somehow made their lives different....bearable.
<> Being a good writer, someone who expressed their thoughts, feelings and beliefs in a way that others could understand and perhaps agree with.
<> Always trying to be kind, even if I disliked the person; being the bigger person and forgiving them for the things they have done against me or others.
<> Making life seem less daunting for others when they were down...giving them a new perspective that they might not have seen otherwise.
<> Being someone that was thought of as being special and unique in my own way.
<> Just being myself...having been true to myself...in every facet of my life.
These are some of the things that I hope that I will be remembered for when I've passed on from this world. (Not that I am expecting to any time soon...!)
My question to you is: What do YOU wish to be remembered for?
Thanks for reading!
