Achieving immortality

ImageWhat we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal – Albert Pine

I heard this today and was moved by it. In fact, I was energized by it. I thought to myself that even though I will turn half a century at the end of this year, I have a lot more to offer to the world and then I was suddenly struck with this overwhelming need to do something for someone. So I put a leash on Bongo – my awesome yellow lab and commenced to walk around the block. It was an exceptional morning and I just knew that given the opportunity, I might be able to accomplish my objective.

Sure enough as we walked, I passed several neighbors and lifted my hand, waved, smiled and then said, hello. And each one reciprocated with the same. Not only did it make me feel good, but my hope was it gave them something to smile about, as well.

We are all here for only a brief time. Why not fill it with smiles and friendly waves and something that we can all be proud to leave behind. After all, it is the best way to achieve immortality. Don’t pass up an opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life. You never know what beauty may come of it.

So, what are you going to do for someone today?

Have fun!
