I traveled out of town this past weekend to attend a memorial for the mother of family friends. I knew Grace, but as the memorial progressed, I didn’t realize how little. She was an amazing woman that impacted many lives for the better. She made a difference in her community, in her family, and in her students. She will be missed.
Afterwards, I had to wonder how people will remember me.
My biggest fear/insecurity is disappointing others. For instance, I joined up with Milo Fowler for #99centnovember. I had grand schemes in my head to make pictures and schedule a bunch of social media posts. But with something changing my work schedule every week, it’s been hard to focus and get it done. I feel like Illidan Stormrage is shouting at me:
YOU ARE NOT PREPARED!
(If you don’t get the reference, it’s from World of Warcraft)
Grace’s husband said she lived with a theme of “do”. And so, I’m going to try to copy her.
My goal is to have my images done and social posts scheduled before the end of the week, while keeping up with my NaNoWriMo word count:
Tackle the little things, keep working, and never give up. I think those are some of what made Grace so amazing. I hope you’re living your life today, because you never know when it’ll be cut short.
Do you ever feel unprepared? What makes you insecure? Do you ever wonder what people will say about you once you’re gone?
