Your Life Is Your Message To The World

 

What message would you like to leave to the world?

Do you want the world to say you lived your life to the fullest?

Do you want to be remembered as someone who woke up each day with purpose and drive?

As you read these quotes about life, living, and simply choosing to be, reflect upon the energy and strength you release into the world each day.

Who are you? Who do you choose to be?

How do you want to be remembered in life, and in death?

Your life is your message. What does it say about you?
