An entry from March 17, 2013…. but something that has plaques recent thoughts.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
– Mark Twain
To say life has been a roller coaster would be the understatement of the century. Lately I have been in deep thought about the end. Stop thinking about it in a morbid context… Quite frankly stop thinking period!
I believe that “we” do too much thinking about things. Morals, values, what should and shouldn’t be, and WHY! In the end all of the hours spent dwelling on the shoulda, coulda, woulda, and whys would have all been for nothing. All that is left are materials you can not take with you and the legacy you leave behind. The legacy you leave behind is constructed of what you make of it or don’t make of the life you’ve been handed. Often times we can not control the situations that life throws at us, but you can in fact control how you handle them.
In the end what will be your legacy? I am currently strategically constructing my answer to this very question. What I do know is that I have decided instead of talking about change I will live the change I want and that starts with me. So throwing caution to the wind I am on the path to creating my legacy… It will be beautiful, bright, and BOOMBASTIC!
“I vow on this dreary day that when I say my final farewell to this world I will NOT say it with disappointment in my eyes… I will say my farewell in the way only I would… With a surprise around every corner:)” (Suck it Mark Twain!)
Love, Peace, and Chicken Grease,
