Live a Life that Matters.

Ready or not, Some day it will all come to an end.
There will be no more sunrise,no minutes,hours or days
All the things you collected,whether treasured or forgotten
will pass to someone else
Your wealth,fame and temporal power,will shrivel to irrelevance
It will not matter what you owned or what you owed your gruges,resentments,frustrations,and jealousies
will finally disappear

So,too,your hopes, ambitions,plans,and to-do lists will expire

The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away

It won't matter where you came from

It won't matter whether you were beautiful of brilliant

Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant

So what will matter?

What will matter is not your success,but your significance

What will matter is every act of integrity,compassion courage

of sacrifice that enriched,emplowered or encouraged others

to emulate your example

what will matter is not how many people you knew

but how many will feel a lasting loss when you're gone

What will matter is not your memories

but the memories that live on in those who loved you

What will matter is how long you will be remembered and what for what

Living a life that matters doesn't happen by accident.It happens by choice...
