Sometime ago I was thinking and I wondered what people would say about me when I was dead. It shouldn’t matter right? I’ll be dead and gone. But it does matter. What people say is indicative of how I’ve lived and the sort of person I have been. So I made a list and decided to share it with you.
When I’m gone, I want them to say I:
- understood people
- was never judgmental
- had a positive solution for most things
- taught positively
- was joyful
- was humble
- empathized & had sympathy
- was honest
- was gentle
- had a clear sense of right & wrong
- did not take nonsense
- had integrity
- was hard working
- was dedicated
- was passionate about helping others
- was goal oriented
- was loyal
- had principles & stuck by them
- was highly organized
Well that’s most of it! Quite ambitious huh? Oh well, I try. But the good thing about it is, so long as I am conscious of this list, I make an effort to tailor my life and everything I do now to fit into the list. Hard work believe me.
Feel free to drop a comment and share your own list with me.
So tell me, what would you like folks to say about you after you’re gone and buried?
