Just yesterday, I had an experience at my daughter’s pre-school tricycling event, an outdoor outing designed for two major reasons. Firstly, to get the kids out having fun while building their social interactions with one another. And secondly, an opportunity for the pre-school to fund-raise.
For me, it was a catch-up moment with parents and teachers given that we’re always on-the-go and in a hurry during drop-offs and pick-ups.
“Stop judging, comparing and measuring your kids against socio-cultural expectations.”
Living only for now is being dead short-sighted while the reality is that what you do here on earth someday will outlive you. For long after the breathe in your nostrils are gone, your works and acts will still be speaking for you.
So, what value are you adding to those around you? What memories will the thoughts of you trigger in the minds of people when you’ve gone to be with your maker? Will it be good, bad, sweet or bitter? Only you can tell. The litmus test of your achievements is how better it has made the world become long after you. So, what would the world remember you for?
