Remnants of my journey

Remnants On our journey in becoming who we ought to be, we leave a trail of remnants. Evidence of good and – not so good- choices. Traces of our passing by. Some, in the form of bruises in the lives of people we were unkind or uncaring to, or signs of positive growth through our interest in others.

We are not always aware what influence or effect we have on those who we meet in the normal course of our journey but it is good to be mindful of the fact that all contact with others is significant.

It is not possible to rectify all the wrongs we willingly and unknowingly caused during our wandering through this world. What is possible though, is to take time to reflect over our conduct and interaction with those who we cross paths with. No need to wait till we get feedback, just an inner objective reflection on the way we live life. Pass by the wrecks we left behind because of arrogance or indifference and celebrate the stories of growth because of our care or interest.

Then, concentrate to live with an intense consciousness of leaving a legacy of hope.

    I recently did exactly that – reflected on my relationships and interactions. Unfortunately because I recently started working full time again, I realised that in some instances I have made the odd slip-up. Which, after reading this, I am determined to rectify!

    Thank you. 🙂

    Thanks for this!! I’m so sorry for all the hurt I caused in other people’s lives without my knowing. All the times I was in a hurry and just walked by… or made a comment that was inappropriate at the time. What did I think? Who do I think am I after all?? I’m so very sorry. I will make it my mission to say sorry to all those I can remember I mistreated. And those I can not remember: Lord, please forgive me and help me to never do harmful things again
