Leave A Legacy

10 out of 10 individuals will experience death. This is an absolute truth regardless of gender, age and race. 10 out of 10 individuals won’t be notified with the exact date and time of their death. This is the fact that we have to embrace however harsh it may seem.

In my own humble opinion, there are three reasons why people are being scared of dying, which basically fall under the “fear of the unknown.” One, the fear of suffering from severe pain until death; second, the fear of not knowing where to spend the eternity; and lastly, the fear of being forgotten.

I won’t tackle the first as I personally share the same sentiments. This is the very reason why some people wanted to die from bangungotΒ instead – no suffering from severe pain, on top of sparing the family from piled-up hospital and other medical bills.

The second is an issue of salvation, which is the most important topic for me. Hence, I opt to discuss this matter on a personal level. If you’re interested, drop me a message anytime.

The third, for me, is manageable. Anyone can work out on this while we are still here on earth. Anyone can live a life that is meaningful and significant and not choose to settle on just existing, and surviving. For I believe that if you’re existing, you better matter.

The question is, “How do you want to be remembered?”

The answer actually lies in another question, “How others view you today?”

Have some time to reflect and evaluate yourself and your lifestyle. Be reminded that knowing is not enough, the doing must happen; and the key to doing is being. Character building.

Leave a legacy for the people who matter to you. Besides, they are the ones you are afraid of of being forgotten by. Do something that will make you remembered for the rest of their lives.

I have my own personal list, which focuses on praying, caring, and sharing. Living each day with Christ-likeness as top priority, wherein all else is of second value, and extending the overflowing love I am receiving from Him. You can also have yours.

Since everything starts in the brain and followed by the work on our emotions, which eventually manifests on our behavior, I suggest you start committing to live a purposeful and remarkable life today. In fact, as one saying emphasizes, the best time to start was actually yesterday.

So, how do you want to be remembered? How others view you today? Is there an alignment or do you need to step back for a while to see the big picture, contemplate and design a greater plan to make a difference – one person at a time.

Leave a legacy. πŸ’—

  1. Ang ganda, Rhea. Since my dad died I have always thought of how I want to live the rest of my life. I’ve started to realign my priorities and worked on myself and who I want to be. Ang layo ko pa dun sa mga goals ko and it’s fine basta everyday, basta buhay ako, I will live towards that goal. I hope more people read your post and guide them in a way. πŸ™‚

    1. I am still a work-in-progress, Kat. Malayo pa din sa goals gaya mo. Maganda lang na isinusulat para reminder to self. Sa sarili talaga magsisimula diba? Let’s push harder to live a significant life. 😊

  2. Nung napanood ko yung Coco naisip ko rin how I want to be remembered. Be kind sa people around you and build good memories wit them ang peg ko. Ang layo ko pa rin sa goal haha pero I am trying my best na maging mas mabuting tao πŸ™‚

  3. Gaya nang nabanggit ko sa blog post ko before (Bulaklak Para Sayo), gusto ko iparamdam sa mga taong mahal ko kung gaano sila kahalaga at kaimportante sa akin, habang may chance pa. Huwag matakot na sabihing mahal sila, at iappreciate ang bawat moment na kasama sila. Pray for them, take care of them, and spend time with them.

    Kailan man ay hindi naging mali ang magmahal. PS.. Hindi hugot yan ah? πŸ˜„

    1. I couldn’t agree more. Life is short, so we must take every opportunity to show them how worthy they are for that love.

      Yes, kailanman ay hindi naging mali ang magmahal. Yes, hindi hugot. πŸ’—
