The goal in this life may not be to live forever
But perhaps it’s to create something that will?

When you’re gone from this world, it’s only your legacy that you leave behind –
What contribution did you make?
How did you impact others?
What example did you set?
For what, will you ultimately be remembered?

When you leave this world,
You don’t carry any of the material over with you
So why spend so much time attending only to your material needs?
Satisfying only your material appetites?
And keeping up only your physical appearance –
Yet so little time cultivating your spirit.

When you’re gone, what you did in this life, not only contributes to the archives of human history, 
It shapes the very spirit that you’ll carry with you into eternity.
And you’ve only got one shot to make your mark
To set things right.

So you may as well start now
Because time is truly of the essence
And only in the end, will your realize, 
That time is the only currency that ever really mattered.

    It’s pointless, because history will always be confined to history. Instead it may be time to look yourself in the mirror, at the risk of not liking what you see. Because getting it right, means being honest with yourself. It comes with the brutality of having to confront your own demons, And being able and willing to take the hits. So take your second chance. Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope And be determined to do things a little different.

  • Communication is not a one way street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving it all behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
  • Ahead of the game
    It’s easy to play life on the back foot Always playing defence. Always waiting, always passive, always reactive.
