A distant family member passed yesterday, and then a friend texted me the song below and it made me think of the indelible mark we leave on this Earth when it’s our time to depart. In most hearts, we want there to be something that says to ourselves and to others, some reaffirmation of “I was here,” so that we can fulfill that need to matter, to be a part of something unique in this world. To add our brand of something special to the millions of others with whom we connect in our short lives. Do you feel that need? Can you feel it? Do you ever think about it?
So what is your mark that you’ll leave behind? Is it what you think it should/could/would be? It’s never too late to change what that ‘dash’ represents in your lifetime. Do you feel that energy today? I awoke with something completely different as my post for today, but this just feels right. As DAngel goes on to her Heaven, we can be reminded of a life well-lived, a family who surely is in mourning over the loss of a soul who tried to fight the cancer that led to her death yet continually kept that bright positivity even when there was nothing left.
You have the power to renew your spirit today and to be able to make a difference, no matter how small in your own life and in the lives of others. To say, I lived. I loved. I was here.
P.S. HAngel, thanks for leading the way with this song today. I am heartily grateful for your presence in my life. ♥ Watch the video below ~ and be inspired by Lady Antebellum.
