This is who I am

Me among the restThe day I die, I will be remembered for who I was and not for what I did. Legacy lies not in greatness of deeds, but in pureness of character. In every step we walk in life, something lingers behind like an aroma it follows us. It is not the deed of kindness or the word of truth that will define me, but the strength and endurance of my character. The “who I really am when nobody is watching”.

My obituary will be made up of character qualities I displayed on an unfailing way throughout my life. Especially during times of pressure.

The true test is not in the guise I wear every day to impress those around me, it is in the persistence of growth in my character.

I can never outgrow the potential of improvement in the essence of who I am. This is the quintessence of our being, what separates us from the rest of the universe.
