I read a blog post yesterday that told the story of Alfred Nobel and how he came to question how he would be remembered, and I did as the post encouraged and began to think. What is my legacy? How would I like to be remembered? Will I be spoken well of? Will I be remembered with love and respect? Will I be missed?
It is hard to consider these questions and not feel a measure of arrogance. I mean, any person who acknowledges their humanity would want the answer to these questions to be “a good one”, “well”, “and “yes” on all accounts. But you really have to wonder if that is true.
I hope it is. I truly do.
