In conclusion (looking back on life and taking stock )

As one reaches the concluding  years of ones life,one occasionally looks back and takes stock of what you have managed to do with your life.

In most cases people will say that they have had a good life it could have been better but that’s life.
Most people would say that they have a loving family and a home or they have been successful in business.

Truth is most people live mediocre lives and leave no lasting residue in this world all memory of them is gone about 25 years after they cease to breath.

A very few, the exceptional few manage to become names that history remembers for ever.

One thinks of great names in history, true but it is the men and women around these people who make this history. It is the writers, artists and those of the creative type who record the history that mankind remembers

That was before everyone and their dog got a gmail account blog,  twitter and Facebook and YouTube account.

So now there is this vast amount if knowledge, opinions,  thoughts philosophy’s and theologies  flooding our into the world.

The ultimate question then should be:-
1) Did I cease the day.
2) Did I leave something of enduring worth.
3) Did I make the world a better place.
4) Did I install respect, survive, dignity, blessings in your living legacy (children and heirs) to make a difference.
5) Did I enjoy my life.
6) did I make lasting relationships for eternity.

  1. I like how you point out that it’s the people around the famous person that makes the history; the writers, artists, and creative types, and so the greatest legacy one could leave behind, in my opinion, is the truth, plain and simple.
