In The End

Ready or not, some day it will all come to an end.

There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours or days.

It wont matter where you came from or what side of the tracks you lived on at the end.

It wont matter whether where you were beautiful or brilliant. Even your gender and skin colour will be irrelevant.

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 every act of integrity, courage, compassion and love.

What will matter is not competence but your character.

What will matter is not how many people you knew, but how many will have tears and feel a lasting loss when you are gone.

Living a life that matters doesn’t happen by accident. Its not a matter of Circumstance but of CHOICE.

With all the hustle and bustle of daily life, it is easy to forget that all of this will come to an end one day. Thanks for the reminder. All of us need it at least once a day!
