|So too; your hopes, ambitions, plans, and to do lists will expire.
The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away.
It won’t matter, where you came from or what side of the tracks you lived on in the end.
It won’t matter, whether you were beautiful, brilliant, and even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant.
So what will matter ? How will the value of your days be measured ?
What will matter is not what we bought, but what we built.
Not what we got, but what we gave.
What will matter is not our success but our significance.
What will matter is not what we learned, but what we taught.
What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage, or sacrifice that enriched, empowered, or encouraged others to emulate our example.
What will matter is not our competence, but our character.
What will matter is not how many people we knew, but how many will feel a lasting loss when we’re gone.
What will matter is not our memories, but the memories that lived in those who loved us.
Living a life that matters doesn’t happen by accident, it’s not a matter of circumstance, but a choice.
Choose to live, a life that matters.
