I know this is a very odd question to ask, “are you writing your own eulogy”? This is not something that we usually ask each other. Let me explain. Recently a friend of mine lost her dad. As we were talking she said that the service was graciously done but that they were really struggling with what to say. You see he had lived a very hard life. The life that he lived was not a very good one; the choices that he made in life were not the best.
Just prior to chatting with him….I was discussing with another friend about what people think of us in general. We were discussing about when someone walks in the door and what you immediately think of them. If I were to walk in the door ….do my friends get excited to see me? Or am I one of those people who when you see me, you say “great….she here now”. You know what I mean…there are those people who we love to see and those we don’t. Why would you want a personality that no one wanted to be around?
I heard someone say a long time ago….while you are living you are writing your eulogy. What a thought…but so true. What you do now, how you treat people, how you are around others will ultimately be in the end, what you are known for.
What do people say about you now? What will they say about you then? Something to thing over today! See if you need to make some changes in your life!
