What Will Matter

Di ako makapagblog lately but then di ko maiwasan di bisitahin ang mga bloggers na malapit na sa puso ko (aru). Para kay Selvo (suspended blog pero di ito naging hadlang para patuloy mag blog ), Maru (na naninibago sa kanyang bagong palasyo), to Jojitah na na-imbiyerna and to WPP friends, whatever it takes, we keep our head high and move on. I’m proud to be one!

I wanna share this poem sa inyo, pramis, misan lang ako nakakatanggap ng mga emails sa makabuluhan kung hindi forwarded emails puro spam lang lol. Here it goes..


Some day it will all come to an end.
There will be no more sunrises, no more minutes, hours or days.
All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten, will pass to someone else.
Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance.
It will not matter what you owned or what you were owed.
Your grudges, resentments, frustrations and jealousies will finally disappear.
So, too, your hopes, ambitions, plans and to-do lists will expire.


The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away.
It won’t matter where you came from or what side of the tracks you lived on at the end.
It won’t matter whether you were beautiful or brilliant.
Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant.
So what will matter?
How will the value of your days be measured?


What will matter is not what you bought, but what you built,
Not what you got, but what you gave.
What will matter is not your success, but your significance.
What will matter is not what you learned, but what you taught.
What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage or sacrifice that enriched, empowered or encouraged others to emulate your example.
What will matter is not your competence, but your character,
Not how many people you knew, but how many will feel a lasting loss when you’re gone.
What will matter is not your memories, but the memories of those who loved you.
What will matter is how long you will be remembered, by whom and for what.

Living a life that matters doesn’t happen by accident.
It’s not a matter of circumstance but of choice.
Choose to live a life that matters.
