There has always been much debate on the basis of it. For me the theory is very different to many of my peers and the hypothesis of the moment.
For me, Its not about the body living for ever. Its a part of you that will live on in your children and your children's children. Its not doing deeds that are remarkable in their entirety. Its the care and feeling you took to do them, being genuine and authentic in everything you do.
People wont always remember your face, your quirks or oddities, but they will always remember how you made them feel. Whether that be good or bad, that's up to you.
You leave a tiny piece of yourself with those you make laugh at your craziness and your bad jokes, with those you care for and the hearts you touch, with those you cry with and those you share your most precious gift... time...
Time is something you cant get back, so once its gone its gone, so to give it wholeheartedly and freely is a precious gift indeed and how blessed those people are to be the ones you choose to share it with.
They will remember the one who listens to their hopes and dreams and their stories. Who will hold out a hand if they need, who will share great wisdom with the gentlest of touches.
You don't have to be famous or rich or a hero to always be remembered for how special you are. You just have to be human, you just have to be real, You just have to be you.
