Year-end reflections

Another year has come and gone
When did time start to go so fast
Once upon a time a year was 365
Now in the blink of an eye
January 1 becomes December 31

Do you remember when you were a child
Wishing that you would grow up faster?
Do you remember that time was sweet and meandered?

We fill our lives with meaningless milestones
Graduation
Marriage
A career

What do these things mean?
How can these measure success?
Accomplishment?
Self-worth?

A life shouldn’t be measured by what you’ve accomplished
There will always be others who will surpass what you
A life should be measured by those you have touched
Your kindness
Your love
Those are the things you should strive to be remembered by

What good are your accomplishments if you’ve destroyed the lives of others to define your success?
Is that the legacy you wish to leave behind?
Would you rather be feared than loved?

Is this how you want to be remembered?
