who will people say you were...

when it's all said and done and you have taken your last breath, dreamed your last dream, shed the last of your tears.. what will you leave behind.

of all the stuff that we gather, that fills our shelves and closets and garages to overflowing.. the picture albums full of snapshots, the jewels, the must have latest gadgets.. is this who you are? the loved ones left behind to clean up or clear our your treasures may find items that make them laugh or cry, pause to relive moments together, but is this all that is you, your essence? will they say you always drove the nicest car, lived in the best homes, took the most expensive vacations, threw the best parties.. or will they say you were loving, and caring and had the biggest heart. Will they say you were full of Joy, full of compassion and hope.. that you lived each moment to it's absolute maximum..

when there is nothing left of you but sweet memories.. who will people say you were...


  1. I actually thought about this quite a bit, and my conclusion is this: I want to be known as someone who was always positive. It's something I need to work on, but I want people to think of me as someone who enjoyed life and did all they could for others. Deep thoughts.

  2. Lots to think about here. I hope they'll say that I was kind and thoughtful, smart and funny. I'd like to be remembered well.

    Thanks for Rewinding at the Fibro.
