Will the world be a better place… After I’m gone?
Thinking about the one chance I get, will I use it to make this world a better place? Or will I waste it and fade away into the abyss of history?
When I self reflect I realize how much of my life I have already thrown away. Missed opportunity after missed opportunity – but I don’t have to continue down that path. I can change. I can be a powerful influence in this world – not someday, but today.
When I’m gone will society have benefited from my existence? Will there be a mark that I’ve left on people’s lives? on the world?
I feel this deep tension inside of me – this powerful driving force that wants to develop my life-song into something beautiful. Something permanent.
I am trying to view my life according to what will be important after I’m gone. I can’t take anything with me, but there is plenty I can leave behind. Will it be a life of selfishness or of sacrifice?
I’m choosing sacrifice. I’m choosing the hard road.
When I’m gone, I will look back on my life and see that I conquered a road that few even had the courage to attempt.
I’m choosing love. When one perseveres with love, they always change the world.
I am just a vapor in the wind and any breath could be my last. Today is the day that I will change – myself and the world. Soon I will be gone – and the world will be a better place.
