Imagine yourself at the end of your life. What sort of legacy will you leave? Describe the lasting effect you want to have on the world, after you’re gone.
So before we do the Viking funeral pyre, I want to make sure that people know that although I was not perfect, I have tried to make up for my mistakes.
My kids like me enough. My boyfriend still puts his head on my lap when he has missed me. My parents haven’t disowned me yet.
Sometimes, I use the blog to get the word out about causes like MADD and domestic violence awareness campaigns. Hopefully, it has helped someone.
After my own domestic abuse issues, I decided that I better shape my own life. Trust me. I do not want anyone to take over my life ever again. It is not worth all of the hassles and curfews.Curfews are almost the worst thing ever. Not showering and being homeless is worse. Still, I detest curfews. I didn’t like them when I was 16. I liked them even less when I was 33.
So I made a bucket list. Since then I make an honest attempt to do a few things every year. I really want to be able to say that my life wasn’t all bad. My life has been eventful, possibly a little precarious at times.
I also did some interviews with some cool people. I made a couple friends on the blog and in real life.
There’s that saying “Don’t take life too seriously. No one gets out alive anyway.”
I wish that I had written this note. It’s perfect.
exactly!!! well said
Thanks! Thanks for sharing also! 🙂

I love the note on the end of this page, I think it sums it all up perfectly. The fact that we are all imperfect, and take imperfect action is a common theme to everyday life, the fact that we try, we live, we love and we laugh is what is most important. The thought of striving for a better self is the endeavour of humanity, to do little else is to let evil thrive.
