The older I get, the more I hate change. Let me explain...
The past ten days has seen so many deaths from the celebrity world...Natalie Cole, David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Rene Angelil, Glenn Frey, Dan Haggerty, Mic Gillette, and two fabulous drummers. All of these fabulous human beings were in their mid to late 60's. Does this freak me out...yeah, totally.
I'm human...and while I do have a strong faith base, the unknown has always spooked me. It's the not knowing what's on the other side of life, if there is anything on the other side of this living, breathing planet. I was taught to believe in Heaven...an eternity. What will it be? An alternate universe where there is no pain, suffering, tears, weeping? Will it be similar to where I am now?
Death freaks me out completely. Now you all know one of my weaknesses. As I said, I'm human, I think. (wink) I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't looking forward to many more years of life here. As stupid as that sounds in light of the way our world seems to be...I love life. I love living life...all aspects of it. It's a way for me to hopefully show what I was put here to do and carry out my ultimate purpose.
We mourn the loss of these great humans because of their contribution to society and to our happiness...the hours of music, movies, entertainment that brought joy and tears...and most of all memories.
What one thing will people remember about you? Will they remember you as a giving, caring human? Will they remember your kindness? Will they remember your salty, negativity? Will they remember that you gave all you had to all you knew?
How will you be remembered?
