When our life comes to an end do you want to be remembered as the person who was angry and full of bitterness or as the person who knew no stranger and brought happiness or compassion wherever they went? Will they see you as a great loss to the community or just another poor soul they knew. So many get caught up in greed and self-satisfaction only to find themselves either disliked by many or forgotten by all those around them. No person can be positive all the time but we should strive to be positive and to be an example for others around us. How we act and how we treat others is what we are judged on by our peers and will be the defining factor of how we are remembered after our time is up.
Though it may be a bit grim if not morbid to think about how others will remember you in the end, but that is part of being a mortal being as we humans are. All of our possessions, wealth and personal triumphs will be forgotten but how we lived our life along how we treated others will remain beyond our lifetime. Some will wonder why would it matter what others remember you as after you die? Well I guess to some people it makes no difference, for as I am concerned it not that important but if I am remembered it would be better if it was in the positive. All we really have here on earth that no one can take from us is who and what we are and how we decide to interact with the world.
I guess the point I am trying to get across is that the words you speak, the actions you take and how you treat others is what truly defines who you are. The question is how do you want others to perceive you while you are living and how would you like to remembered in life as well as beyond the grave. Walk through life the way you would like to be known and remembered. For how you walk through life and what path you choose is your own choice to make and so is how you are perceived and remembered.
The law of attraction says that similar things attract one another. Murphy’s law says that if it can go wrong it will. Life does not always go by the rules and seldom does it follow any of the laws.

I think that we all want to be remembered as kind and loving, when we pass on. I really hope though,…that we focus more on what God thinks about us,…and if we are pleasing to Him. If we are pleasing God,….we will be kind, loving, and caring of others,….just the way that Jesus taught we should be. So, although i would like for people to like me, and remember me,….what is most important to me,….is that my life touched others, and caused them to turn to Christ. That is the the one thing i want to be remembered for!!
Indeed if more people practiced the golden rule this world would be much easier to live in. Thanks for sharing!
