This is about you. Yes you! I know you needed to hear it.
Lately I’ve been faced with a few too many tragedies. Too many people passing away way too soon, and too many other close calls for comfort. I’ve noticed that through these times, I find myself looking back through their posts almost every day. I look at every photo and video they ever uploaded, every status that they ever made just trying to remember all of it... just everything about them.
I find myself getting to know them better with their posts. I love tracing back through the best times in their lives. I find myself looking at the messages they’ve left behind as their legacy for us to live by today.
So my challenging question to you is this: What will people remember you for? Will it be good? Bad? Your social media accounts matter. They let people know who you are and share your message to the world. These will oftentimes stick around... even after we are gone. Think of that next time you post.
There is nothing insignificant about you. The people who love and admire you are getting to know who you are through what you say. What are the best parts of you that you want them to see? What messages do you want them to know about you?
