Choose a Life that matters

March 22, 2017

 

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

 

It won’t matter whether you were beautiful or brilliant

 

Even you gender and skin colour will be irrelevant

 

So what will matter? How will the value of your days be measured?

 

What will matter is not what you bought but what you built

 

Not what you got but what you gave

 

What will matter is not your success but your significance

 

What will matter is not what you learnt but what you taught

 

What will matter is the very act of integrity, compassion, courage or sacrifice

 

that enriched, empowered or encouraged others to emulate your example

 

What will matter is not your competence but your character

 

What will matter is not how many people knew you

 

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

 

What will matter is not your memories of those who loved you

 

What will matter is how long you will be remembered

 

by whom and for what

 

Living a life the matters doesn’t happen by accident

 

its not a matter of circumstance but of choice

 

Choose to live a life that matters
