MISS/MR/MRS ANNONYMOUS (1984- BLAH)? remembering Bimbo Odukoya,Dagrin amongst others
Today I read in the papers about the death of a mother, sister, aunt, friend…but what I was more interested in was her position as a wife(some say I’m obsessed with love, marriage and relationships). I get inspiration from published articles or stories of women who have made their mark in their homes. It’s not easy to see that a late wife is described as her husband’s best friend…or that she was his backbone…most women forget to fulfill that function; The function of a best friend and back bone; the role of the neck. In our busy entangled lives, we often forget.
It is unfortunate that some of these women pass on early leaving their husbands and family to grieve their loss, however, it is a thing of great joy to have lived a very rich and rewarding life, albeit short. It doesn’t matter how long you live, what is more important is what you will be remembered for…what memories have you been creating? What impact have you made in your 26, 35 or 50 years of living? You don’t have to have done anything globally awesome like discovering the cure for AIDS….all you need to do is start with being locally awesome…and then take it from there.lol. Funny, but true.
I have thought about what will be said if I was to pass on, not a cheering thought but it was motivational. I was inspired to do more with myself, to live each day like it was the last and be all that I can be today. This gift called “LIFE” may not be freely given tomorrow, what then would you do? Would you have regrets? Would you be singing your Coulda, woulda, shoulda’s? Or would you be content? Personally, I’d like to be remembered to have lived, loved and served!
Do you want to be MISS/MR/MRS ANNONYMOUS (1984- BLAH)? What would you love to see on the tombstone? I don’t want to get too morbid. I’m not trying to mess up your imagination or mind; I’m trying to send a message not make a mess.
The message is this: WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR LIFE AND HOW ARE YOU MAKING AN IMPACT?
