whether you are ready or not,
someday your life will come to an end.
there will be no more sunrises,
no minutes, no hours nor 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 are owed
your grudges, resentments, frustrations, and jealousies will finally disappear
so, too, your hopes, ambitions, plans, and to-do list will expire.

the wins and losses that once seemed so
important will fade away.
it won't matter whether you were beautiful or
brilliant, even your gender and skin color 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 your 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 are gone.
what will matter is not your memories, but the
memories that live in those who love 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 circumstances, but of choice.
CHOOSE TO LIVE A LIFE THAT MATTERS.... (Read more inside ..)
