By God's grace, my wife and I are blessed with a baby boy last Sunday. I have a fantastic family and am grateful to the almighty for all the blessings.
Got thinking this morning while I was blogging. It hit me like a bucket of COLD water. When my son is reflecting on my life after I pass what will they think of me, my life, goals, accomplishments, how I chose to treat people?
So I wrote a list of the qualities that I would love him to say when asked… “What was your dad like?”
Even if you don’t have children you can benefit from the exercise. Picture you have lived a full life and your future children are sitting around having a coffee with the media guy. The question is “Tell me about your dad/mom, how did they live? What did they teach you?”
Take the time to write this list and more clearer you can write, more the chance of accomplishing it.
Here is something else to think about when you finish the list. What if it all ended tomorrow? What would they say now? Don’t wait to create the life that you want to live! Don’t wait to treat people with kindness, love and respect! Don’t wait to care about a cause bigger then yourself. Don’t wait to get up and see the sunrise, play in a puddle or work harder at something you love! Don’t wait for tomorrow or the best time to start!!
