"Live life as though you were reading your own eulogy".
This made me think beyond of what I want in life. It kinda made me see things in a new perspective. It made me not look at what to achieve in my lifetime. But to look at what I want to achieve after my lifetime.
You must be confused right now.
As a bookworm, a person who loves to buy books and collect them, I won't be concerned on people commenting on what I read. I'll be more concerned on what my children will their children about me when I'm no longer on this planet.
"My mother was very well-read and loved spending hours in a bookstore."
God, bad example, right?
*imagines Mozart facepalms*
I'll just go straight to the point.
When I die, I'll want people to talk about me in a way. I want my children to tell their grandchildren about me. I want someone to get a soft look in their eyes as they smile, saying
"She was and will always be loved"
Simple as that. Nothing about how different I am. Nothing about my dreams. All I want to be remembered for is that I was loved.
It doesn't sound that difficult to achieve, right?
