What We Leave Behind
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou
I sighed when I read Maya Angelou passed away today. What an inspiration, artist, creator, model, survivor, thriver, poet, leader, writer, lover of life.
What will we leave behind? Not just at the end of our life, but at the end of each day as we pass through people’s lives.
Seeds or weeds
Inspiration or angst
Light or shadow
Joy or pain
Laughter or tears
Kindness or callous
Soft or hard
Delight or doom
Passion or indifference
Faith or doubt
What power we have each day to leave a something lasting behind, to be missed when we leave, to cast light in an often dark world.
You will certainly rest in peace Maya Angelou since you offered so much peace and love as you passed through. We pass through for such a very short time. Carelessly and relentlessly scatter perennial seeds of love that remain long past our time on earth.
“I know for sure that loves saves me and that it is here to save us all.” – Maya Angelou
