A Life That Matters

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

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

All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten, will pass to someone else.

Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance.

It will not matter what you owned, or what you were owed.

Your grudges, resentments, frustrations, and jealousies will finally disappear.

So, too, your hopes, ambitions, plans, and to-do lists will expire.

The wins and 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 whether you were beautiful or brilliant.

Even your gender and 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 you 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 every act of integrity, compassion, courage or sacrifice,
that enriched, empowered or encouraged, others to emulate your example.

What will matter is not your competence, but your character.

What will matter is not how many people you knew,
but how many will feel a lasting loss when you’re gone.

What will matter is not your memories,
but the memories that live in those who loved you.

What will matter is how long you will be remembered,
by whom and for what.

Living a life that matters doesn’t happen by accident.

It’s not a matter of circumstance, but of choice.



If you decide what you want for your future right now, you are trapping yourself into wanting that same thing down the road. Deciding what you want right now does not allow for you to change your mind or want something different although you might change or the situation and circumstances might turn out differently.

Locus of Power

The truth behind other people causing you harm or hurt is that you have allowed the locus of control to move from within you to an external something or someone. Don’t give them that power over you any longer. In the center of your universe is you. You have the choice to to rule or to be ruled. Giving away your power does not help others, in fact it only hurts them too. Especially if they are using it against you. There doesnt seem to be any positivity in that  type of situation. Maintain the source power, not because you need to have control, but because it allows you to constantly be searching for higher thoughts, for good feelings and for a vibrational frequency that allows for the universe to manifest events and a world built on desire and love.

Hey you! I cant stop thinking of you… I realize that you might be embarrassed for all that has happened, you may not like who you are or your situation but you are a brilliant beautiful person and you are growing. You DO have faith in yourself and you CAN get through this. Matter of fact, as you write this you are getting through this even though it doesnt always feel or look that way, but when its done you will be so proud of yourself because you did it. Only YOU could have done this and you will love yourself even more than you do now. You will love yourself more than you could ever imagine and when you love yourself that much, only then is when grant the liberty to the universe to allow someone else to come in and show you how to love yourself even more!

No fire too big, no wings too small.

I might be insignificant but I promise myself to always feel like a hummingbird and do the best I can.
