The people that make you feel alive will never be forgotten.
It’s not the things people say, its not the actions they do, its the feelings they make you feel through those mediums. Someone that can make your heart smile, open your eyes to wisdom and inspire you will leave a lasting impression. For being a friend of the mind is fleeting, but being a friend of the heart lasts a lifetime.
People come and go in our lives; some leave more quickly than others but its not the amount of time we spend with them, its the joy, the happiness, the freedom, the inspiration that makes instant friendships that are not bounded by time. For when one lives from the heart, time is of no matter. All of the connections I have felt through love, bliss, happiness, laughter etc I will carry with me for the rest of my life because they made me feel alive.
Think of the people you cherish in your life, and what feelings do they provoke in you? Think of a person that you dont have the best relations with and the feelings they stir within you. Now choose, how do you want to be remembered?
You have the ability to make people feel and this is powerful beyond measure. Lets make this world better by being mindful of the imprints we leave on others and consciously choose to bring the best out in each other.
Leave an imprint on the heart instead of a warning label in the mind.
