Life is a very valuable thing and sometimes we are only reminded of that when we experience the loss of life. We need to focus on enjoying time with those we love, and enjoying the time we have available to us. I know some people believe in an afterlife, while others don't. The bottom line, is no matter where we go or don't go, we need to remember that we are here right now. So try not to spend time thinking of yourself, and spend time thinking of those around you. Make impact on others lives and I promise, it will make a positive impact on your life.
We should focus on trying to live beyond our life here on earth by living in the minds and memories of those whom we had a positive impact on. We remember people whom make an impact on our lives whether it be someone famous like Einstein, or someone as simple as that teacher that believed in you and you continue to go back to the things they taught you. Not just academic information, but life lessons.
Let's do our best to live a life that allows for others to remember who we are.
