On the Creative Writing Prompts site, one of the prompts was the question "What do I want to be remembered for?" Great question for an insightful journey. The answer to this question will always tell you what you truly value in life. A couple of things popped into my mind right away:
1. Being positive. I definitely want to be remembered as being a positive person; always finding the silver lining and always looking for the opportunity and blessing in every difficulty. Unfortunately, I fall far short of this ideal so I have some work to do if I truly want to achieve this persona.
2. Helping Others. So many people have helped me selflessly that I feel as though I can never fully repay them. Nor can I repay the world for all the goodness I have seen out there. I try to go out of my way to help people; both friends and strangers.
3. Leader. It never fails. No matter where I go or what I end up getting involved in, I end up in a leadership position, sometimes involuntarily. True leaders know how to both lead and follow, speak and listen, give and take. I want to be a person who has true balance in life. Someone who doesn't just talk about it, but actually live it on an everyday basis.
