“most importantly love
like it’s the only thing you know how
at the end of the day all this
where you’re sitting
nothing even matters
except love and human connection
who you loved
and how deeply you loved them
how you touched the people around you
and how much you gave them”
People have always asked me what I hope to accomplish in life and I have always said, “I hope I have lived a meaningful life.” I met someone two years ago who said I intrigued him. He said I lived with a spark that most people do not have, a desire to impact the lives I touched. For some odd reason – I thought everyone lived in that way or matter. In my opinion, pain has the ability to change people for better or worst. When we experience pain, we are granted the opportunity to grow from pain or to be crippled by it. I have been crippled by pain and I have grown through pain. I am perfectly imperfect.
At the end of my life, I hope to have loved so deeply that those who know me… know it is a love that is hard to come by. Brief, swift, and gone too soon. We should all strive to know that if our life ended today, we could confidently say we lived with no regrets… that we loved deeply and gave back tirelessly to less fortunate communities.
Do you need a prayer?
Love and light,
