How will you be remembered?
Thursday, 31 January 2013
Another one of my 3am morning posts.
As one chapter of your life ends and a new one begins, you find yourself having to move forward, to move on. Moving on; change, it's a part of life that everyone has to go through and as much as we dread it, we have to pick ourselves up and move on.
So here comes my question, "When you move on and are gone, what would you have left behind? What is your legacy? Will people remember you when you're gone? And if they do, what will they remember you for, what will they remember you as?"
Over the years I have come to learn that a phase of your life isn't just a phase, it's a period of time given to you to create your a legacy and what you choose to do with that "phase" will become the legacy that you will leave behind for yourself. Why do the memories of some remain with you even though it has been years since they've left, while the memory of others just fades away within days? Those individuals who you can't seem to shake from your mind, they remain with you because they have created such lasting impressions, such powerful legacies for themselves that even now when they're gone, their legacies live on in you. Yet for those who you can forget so easily, they fade away so quickly simply because they haven't done enough to leave their mark where they've been, they are like footprints in the sand that are eroded away with every single wave and eventually there's nothing left of their existence to tell of their story. Your legacy tells your life story, and how sad would it be if after all those years, there's nothing left to stand for your life and what you have done. It would be like you didn't exist at all.
Choose to live your life the way you want to be remembered.

There's so much I need to say in this space but so little time to do so.

Choose your words carefully.
Words can build people up and at the same time they can tear people down. And everyone has the power to influence another's life with the words that they choose to say. There is great power that lies in the words that you choose to speak, so choose those words wisely. Don't say things that you don't mean out of a moment of anger and don't speak without thinking of what you're saying first because you'll never know what those words can do to someone.

I know it's late and I should probably be sleeping but I just needed to get this out of my chest before I sleep.
The company that you keep is very important, they determine who you are as an individual, from your behavior to your character. And this year, one of my new year resolutions is actually to build friendships that will last a lifetime. I have a lot of people in my life, but I'm not looking to have thousands of hi-bye friends, I want good long lasting friendships that I can count on. This year I'm really trying my best to focus my time and energy on individuals in my life that matter to me. And I'm glad that in the short time span of 10 days, I've been doing pretty good building on existing friendships and at the same time, God has also been bringing new individuals into my life Over this process, I'll gain some friends and I'll lose some. But at the end of 2013, when I look back and see the friendships that have been developed and sustained throughout the year, I will know for sure that I am surrounded by individuals who will stick with me for the rest of my life.
And for you, if you don't make an effort, this will be the last year of our friendship.

Just when I thought that I would be getting some normalcy in my life, just when I finally picked myself up from a really harsh fall and gotten back on my own two feet, life just has to find it's way to introduce situations in my life that brings me back to my knees once again.

Cannot help but feel so overwhelmed by the sudden rush of deadlines and responsibilities. But God I commit them all into your hands and I proclaim your favor over my academics and leadership responsibilities in all the different aspects of my life! Amen!

This year is a year of really challenging myself, pushing myself out of my comfort zones, living by faith and trusting in the Lord to provide and empower me to do all that He has called me to do. God, even though I'm small, you have called me to do great things for you. Be my strength and my guide through this 2013, strip away all my fears and insecurities and replace them with your joy and your peace. Help me to find my confidence in you and you alone. Teach me to pray bold prayers and to expect big things from you. Always remind me that through you, I am more than a conquerer and that because you are able, I am able and I can do all things through you who gives me strength.

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
