One day you awaken and realize that everything you do is only because you hope to have what is already yours.
It is a profound moment when you realize that this is not some trite philosophical statement.
When we are dying, we realize we have spent a lifetime striving for things that we have to give up. Everything. The house, the car, the money, even the people.
It is not what you have gained in life, but what you have given and left behind that matters.
Your gift to others is your legacy. It is your immortality, for we live on in the hearts and minds of the living when it’s time to say goodbye. Don’t wait to be surprised at the end. When you live with that end in mind, your priorities will change and your life will blossom like never before.
