In her words...
Ready or not. I knew that someday it would all come to an end. There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours or days. All the things I collected, whether treasured or forgotten, will pass to someone else. So what will matter? How will the value of my days be measured? Not what I got, but what I gave. What will matter is not my memories, but the memories that live in those who loved me. What will matter is how long I will be remembered by whom and for what. Living a life that matters doesn’t happen by accident.
It’s not a matter of circumstance, but of choice. I chose to live a life that mattered.
