How would you like to be remembered?

How do you want to be remembered?

This one sounds so morbid.So I’m not going to think of it that way.

I’m going to view it as how I want other people to see me.

That’s the same thing right?

Okay I’m going with that.

If you would have asked me this when I was in high school I probably would have said I wanted be seen as tough and strong and someone who says whatever she wants.

And I still want to be viewed that way.

Just different.

Back then I would have said that so people thought I was cool.

I would have said that to let people think I was all that.

I still want people to view me as that.

I want people to know that I’m tough.

That I work hard for everything.

I want people to view me as strong.

I also want to be viewed as someone who says whatever she wants.

My kids I coach will tell you I’m blunt, and it’s usually followed by how much they appreciate it and respect it.

And I love that.

I love that they don’t care how I am.

I also want to be viewed as someone who cares about other people.

I worked hard for my tough exterior.

I wanted people to think that nothing they said could ever get to me growing up.

I was called “the mean twin.”

And I took it over.

I had this attitude, and I still do.

But I really do care for other people.

I’ll always go above and beyond for the people I love and the people that deserve it.

And that’s how I want to be viewed.

As someone who’s tough, strong, tells it how it is, and cares for others.

I feel like I get all of these traits from people I love.

All of these different traits are learned from the people I surround myself with.

We are what we surround ourselves with.

And I surrounded myself with the people who I aspire to be like.

I think if we look at ourselves and ask ourselves the question of how we wanted to be seen by others we will see the traits of those that we love.

That we admire the ones we love and we aspire to be like them.

That we take everything we love about others and see it as something we want to be.

I’ve never thought about it like that until I started writing this.

That exactly how I want to be seen is what I see and love in others.

Look at me realizing things.

Try it.

Ask yourself that question, how you want to be seen by others.

Look at your answers.

And see if those qualities are in the ones you surround yourself with, love, and aspire to be like.
