My good friend Soozie and I were talking about what would happen to different people after we passed away. It’s a dark topic that so many people don’t want to talk about but it is sadly a part of everyone’s journey.
We all have an expiration date and we’ll never know what that date is in advance but we can work on what we leave behind as we progress towards that date by choosing love, happiness, and kindness.
Have you ever thought about what you will leave behind? I typically don’t think about that topic at all because it’s too heavy but I do try to live every day to the fullest that I can and hopefully I impact my friends, my family, and anyone that reads my blog with positivity.
My husband jokes that I “leave the glitter everywhere.” I know he secretly likes it. Who doesn’t want glitter in their car and house? Kidding but really.
My bestie Sarah says that when she’s old and gray she’ll still find the gold glitter that I threw around during my wedding planning and she’ll remember that I was here and that she loved me and the “annoying” gold glittery-ness that is me.
While the glitter might be an occasional annoyance on your skin, in the carpet of your car, on the floor in your house, or in the crevices of your kitchen table; I am hopeful that those little shimmery speckles of love remind you of me or of someone like me that wanted to cultivate a life of happiness and love.
After I expire I hope my trail of glitter is one that sparks love and happiness.
What’s your imprint? What will you leave behind? Whatever it is, I hope it’s something lovely.
