The most precious commodities on this planet are our health, love, and happiness. Regardless of what we accomplish and accumulate in life, we are unable to take it with us.
In the fast paced, consumer driven, social media shared world that we live in today, success and happiness are often defined by the status of what we achieve, and the value of the things that we own.
Everywhere we look, we are inundated with the same message: the measure of our self-worth is directly equal to the measure of our material wealth.
Whether it’s the status car, the trendiest clothes, the luxury home or the CEO title that comes with the envied corner office with a view, these and the many other status symbols of wealth and success seem to forever define our values.
The amount of money you made, the jobs you’ve held, your performance at those jobs, the number of friends you have on facebook, followers on twitters, won’t be on my and your tombstone. People will tend to remember you for the person you’ve been not what you’ve done.It’s not our significant successes or accomplishments that linger long in hearts and minds, but rather our kindness and caring that people will remember. That’s what really matters.
