to Live, a life uncommon
,,, the following is a journal entry of a young woman who'd
done just that...
,,, to Live, we must Give
If something should
ever happen to me, I want my life and my death to mean something. I want
everyone to use my death as an opportunity to change their lives. I have
already had quite a journey and I'm only twenty-eight. One thing I like
about getting older is that you get closer and closer to a peaceful place.
I'm improving my life everyday. I'm giving of myself and I've found,
that being a giving person makes one truly blessed. It seems so simple
but the Golden rule works. It's alot deeper than that though.
to remind people that everything we do affects someone else.
Everything! We have a responsibility to make sure that what we do
is good. In my lifetime, I have seen alot of people in pain, because of
someone elses actions. It's hard enough to be successful in your own life,
let alone having someone else slow you down. Some of you aren't
improving your lives, some of you seem to be pretty selfish. I have heard
so many life stories of people whom I care about and most of them are about
pain. Some people have been my friends, some have been my cousins, some
have been closer relatives. I dont want to see them hurt anymore.
would like everyone to think about your own life and whether you're living
it unselfishly. Are you a selfish person? Are your kids being affected
by it? Are your friends, your relatives, your customers, your co-workers?
really look at your life. ASK someone that you value the most in life if
you are a selfish person. It's not too late to change bad habits.
is always going to make mistakes and peoples feelings are always going
to be hurt, but as it goes right now, most people don't even know how they're
affecting peoples lives. So open your eyes and open your hearts to
each other. You'll see that you will live a much happier life.
that I can reach some of you -
This is just my observation
and something I've learned in life.
I love you
