The Way I Am Remembered
When I think about life and the people who made a difference, it was the people who were there for me at the highest points and at the lowest points. They were there to say hell yeah this rocks and look me in the face and say that they were glad I was there sharing a memory with them. At other times the people I remember are the totally random ones that I ran into who said, it will all work out and listened to me when I was down when all I needed were ears and an exceptionally amazing hug! I have learned many lessons in the passed year. I've learned that being myself no matter what others think is the most important, that family should and always be the first priority, I've learned that first impressions make out a relationship between two people, I have learned who is most important in my life, I have learned to stay positive no matter what is going on. I have also learned the value of great friends. The people who I need the most and they need me just the same. I have learned who the people are that I would do anything for.

I recently have been going out like crazy, every weekend going out and ignoring the responsibilities I have in my life because I just wanted to go out and be a kid. But the thing is I really at this point can't be a kid. The responsibilities that I've taken on don't allow me to go out and not worry about anything or anyone. I do have to worry about getting home safely, worry about my boyfriend who's here waiting for me, the house I own and what work needs to be done to that, the homework that is due every week, my reputation. I have two friends who have decided that they need to figure their relationship out and not take one another fore granted and not forget why they were together in the first place. And at first I was like I am not taking sides, I don't want to be in the middle. The realization was that I couldn't take sides, they both are my best friends who have taught me about the kind of person I want to be and don't want to be. The truth is I was in the middle. I had to be there for both of them as they were for me at my lowest points. And they both thanked me for my friendship and said that I am a person they know they can count on for anything.

The lesson here is that in my life, I don't want to be remembered as the girl who goes out to the bar all the time, and I don't want to be remember as the girl who gets so drunk she can't even remember where she lives (didn't happen literally, just making an example). I want to be remembered as the girl people could count on in any situation. I want people to value who I am and what I am about. I have gone through to much to throw it out the window and not build a good relationship with my hometown, where everyone knows me. I want to be that girl people know they can call in an emergency and I will take care of whatever is going on and try everything in my ability to fix. I want to be remembered in a good way and know that I made a difference in someone else's life. I want people to remember that I was the one to break the mold, reach out and pursue everything life has to offer. I want people to remember me as a true, genuine, incredibly amazing friend or colleague or whatever it may be. How do you want to be remembered in your life?

That's the thought of the day~

You cannot live worrying about how you will be remembered, let the ones who are left when your gone worry about that, live for today, screw tomorrow, you may not even see it
