Live a Life That Matters
Appreciating what you have and not having any kind of expectations of other people is self empowerment.
Putting value on my self-awareness way above the opinions other people have of me, is the key to true inner freedom. It is the gateway to living a life that matters.
Ready or not it will all come to an end.
There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours or days.
All the things collected whether treasure or valuables, will pass to someone else.
Your wealth, fame & temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance. It will not matter what you owned or what you were owed.
Your grudges, resentments, frustrations, & jealousies will finally disappear.
So too, your hopes, ambitions, plans, and to-do lists will expire.
The wins & losses that once seemed so important will fade away. It won’t matter where you came from, or on what side of the tracks you lived, at the end.
It won’t matter if you we’re beautiful or brilliant even your gender & 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 got but what you gave.
What will matter is not your success, but your significance.
What will matter is not what you learned but what you taught.
What will matter is not your competence, but your character.
What will matter is not how many people you knew, but how many people will feel a lasting loss when you are gone.
What will matter will not be your memories, but the memories that live in those who love you.
What will matter is how long you will be remembered, by whom and for what.
