Wonder What They’re Saying?

donttakelifeforgrantedThis post is not to frighten you, but to get you to think and to prepare for what will one day come. Let’s say your life ended today, do you know how your obituary would read? I am sure you are aware that the way you live your life and treat others provides the memories for those you leave behind. They may also be the memories your loved ones and friends will want to include in the telling of your life story. So, this post is actually a good way for you to start being more conscious of the way you live your life and the way you treat others.

You are the author of your life story, your obituary. So, is your story going to be one of misery and despair, or will it be one of strong will and love for your fellow man? Were you the type of person that always had an upbeat personality or an uppity personality? Did you support and help others out of the goodness of your heart or was there a motive behind your support? Were you the type to lift people up or did you enjoy knocking people down? If you were ever knocked down, did you get back up or complain and cry about it?

What will your obituary say about the way you treated people and how you made them feel about themselves? What would it say about the way you treated yourself? What would it say about your attitude? How did you handle yourself in serious or tough situations? I ask you these things because we all know people lie and people will lie at the end to make you look good to those that did not really know you. However, those that will lie know the truth and so will you.

So, maybe this is a good time to start thinking about what could be said about you, if someone wanted to give a little added information into your life story. Think about what you want to leave behind in life and in memories. The best part about starting to think about all of this is that you still have enough time to rewrite the content to your life story. On a reality tip…you are not the only one who determines how people see or remember you.

  1. We do a Living Eulogy on everyone’s birthday. We have a family dinner and go around the table – everyone gets to say something special about the birthday person.

    • That is very creative. I love the whole idea of that, I may have to ask permission to use that idea myself. 🙂 Have a wonderful week Tersia.
