thoughts after midnight

Who tells your story, after you leave the earth?

I think that there is a misconception that unless you are of substantial wealth or celebrity, your story will be told by your children. If you are of substantial wealth or celebrity, you may worry more about what your story will be, and not whether or not it will be told. But that's not what I'm talking about.

This comes to mind following the very recent passing of my aunt. She has passed, leaving behind her husband, and no children. And as far as I'm concerned, I will tell her story, as she, inspires me.

My after midnight thought is this:

Who will tell your story depends on what kind of life you lead. I believe that if you live your TRUE life...
big and genuine...your story will remain alive. Be true to yourself. Enjoy. Experience. No opportunity wasted (thanks for that one, Phil Keoghan).

This should be the easiest thing that you ever do.

Great post! I try to do this too: remind myself of the big picture. It's good to do to remind ourselves of how lucky we are, to pick our battles, and to make the most of what we've got.

emms, I'm learning a lot about here here, and it's very touching. Thanks for sharing.
