…I planned not to inform my colleagues of my birthday and it was successful but not until the closing part of my shift. A colleague just found out from my Facebook about my secret and spilled it out.

Death is no respecter of age, health, nor social status and may take us any time. We just have no control as to when and how it will take us. But we do have control on how we live our lives.
Core Values Drive You
Because I know that my life may end anytime, I live it with intentionality and inspiration. Whenever I decide on something big, I always consider my core values. My values drive my convictions, character and conversations.
Bad Company Corrupts Character
I’d rather be alone if I know I’ll just be spending time with company of friends who don’t share the same values. Trash talk irks me while good conversations are a staple for me. I am a friendly person but I choose my inner circle – those who become closest to me – because I intend to spend my time, energy and resources with them.
Personal Growth Daily
Most of my time is spent on personal growth because I want to leave a good legacy. Here’s how I grow daily. Don’t get me wrong, I do know how to have fun and enjoy, too. I just love being inspired and inspiring people.
The Thing That Matters Most
While looking young, being wealthy and influential can make us happy, enabling us to experience more and possess more things, the thing that really matters most in life is not a thing…it’s the people.
With our mortality in mind, how do we want to be remembered by our: family, friends, and co-workers?
On people’s tomb stones, a small dash marks one’s life and death. It means the life and times of a person. What will your dash mean someday?
