You may wonder what such a title is doing in a blog about living a positive and rewarding life? Throughout the course of my life I have read a great deal of self-improvement/law of attraction type books. A lot of times ideas and thoughts are repeated in slighty different ways. Which is good. It let’s you know what seems to be working for a great deal of different people. Once in a while, however, you come across a fresh idea which you haven’t heard before. This is one such time. Do you ever wonder, “Is this what I should be doing with my life?” or “How do I know what the right path is for me?”. I know I have. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there was a way to see if what you are currently doing matches your values and priorities? There is! I prefer to call this ‘Keeping the end in mind’. Sit down and prepare to write your own eulogy. What would you want said about you at your memorial service? Was it that you were a good parent and raised your children in a loving fashion? Then family would be a great value to you. Perhaps it is that you showed kindness to everyone you met. Then compassion would be a trait that is of great importance to you. Truth is, when we decide what legacy we would like to leave behind it gives our lives purpose and us a sense of direction. If a eulogy seems a bit to dark for you, then try imagining what they would say at an awards presentation. personally I like the eulogy as it also serves to remind us that time is one of the most precious commodities and we should spend it doing what we love and what bring joy and love to the rest of the world. So ask yourself, “what would I want them to say about me?” You’ll never wonder if you’re on the right path again.

A bartender and Postal worker by trade I was witness to the overwhelming negativity that is so common in todays society. A firm believer in the motto "Better to light a candle than curse the darkness" I created this site to bring some of the positivity back into the world and share with otheres.
