In the big picture, no one will miss us when we are gone

health message in the stairwell
No one remembers these flavor of the month/year deals either


When we work from our heart, we must remain mindful that in the big picture, no one will miss us when we are gone.

Even though people tell us how great and important we are right now.

Know the feeling?

  1. Jeff,

    When I read this, I was reminded of the poster that says, “Remember, you’re unique…just like everyone else.”

    You do want to build a legacy, but at the same time, if you do things with a servant’s heart and not for attention, the legacy may not ever be attached to your name. But hopefully the kindness will move forward. 🙂


  2. Bob, much of what we fear and hope for is influenced by media.

    Much of what we know to be our true success is completely untested until we actually do things and see how it turns out.

    Ultimately, there is no one size fits all.

    So we must develop our own convictions. This is exciting and scary simultaneously. That is, until we tackle enough scary stuff to actually make progress past what we thought was just a pipe dream.

    It is breaking through to the mostly unknown that we truly begin to see faith, hope, and blessings beyond measure.

  3. Patty, only those that follow the path long enough and far enough will see the things that others (who stop) never see.

    This is neither good nor bad. The goodness or badness is only so, if one thinks it’s so.

    So to those who think the long journey is good and the new sights and knowledge good, then it is.

    Ultimately, our journey leads us to where we originally began, and we know that place now for the first time.
