it just sucks.
Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.~ Steve Jobs
I have heaps of junk I’ve been fooled into thinking are worth something.
If not financially, then sentimentally.
It matters even more, when you are facing the final destination.
The finish line.
You have to decide how you want to run the final lap.
Sometimes you’re given a chance.
To be reflective, expressive and remorseful.
To right wrongs or fix mistakes.
Sometimes, you can’t even do that.
You don’t get to choose the due date
It may not be tomorrow, it could be in a month.
We can’t control the time or place.
Let me speak the loudest.
Since public speaking is feared by some the most.
rather than facing the pearly gates.
- The word of the year: E P A T HY #Empathy2019
- Yuppy Class of 79 and Breast cancer awareness
- Know your audience and speak to the numbers
- Be kind anyways
- How does the cookie crumble?
If unable to speak, then write.
What doesn’t make sense right now,
may do so tomorrow.
You never know what time is left.
Wisdom dictates: make it worth it.
Teach others what you know when you can.
Opportunities are often fleeting, not always recognized.
Show regrets the door.
Along with all the other things,
that don’t matter.
It’s normal to want to make amends.
Forgive and forgiveness for past hurts.
You can’t take it with you
when you’re gone.
Nobody else may consider your treasures treasure able.
The age, maturity and selflessness comes much later on in life.
The awareness of between right and wrong
become more pronounced.
You can’t control it later
any more than you can now.
Prevent mistakes from happening
saying things you can’t take back.
There’s no backspaces,
redo’s or deletes
Words written may find a space.
An audience, or a reader.
Hitting its mark.
Once the dust is settled
on your eternal soul
What you are remembered for
no longer controlled.
The difference now is
They like to keep rolling the tape or film.
Sometimes deciphering the words.
At least take the wisdom.
It is free.
A token of humility, if such were ever to be.
Avoid having to make apologies.
Avoid making a point.
It doesn’t matter.
Forcing a lesson on a stubborn crew.
Doesn’t make them matter it more.
They don’t always see.
How time does dwindle.
Sometimes you don’t decide.
What are the lessons learned?
More often, they float in a memory.
A warm flush of soft sunshine
or the gentle breeze from the wind.
Cherish the memories.
Try to stay focused on the best.
Don’t try to teach anyone a lesson.
If they’re not prepared to learn.
