Perpetuity

Stressed from work? Family? Relationship problems? Maybe time to step back re-examine the significance of it all!?

“The next time you’re feeling stressed out or are facing a difficult challenge, think about sitting in a graveyard, and look at the years on the headstones: 1925-1973, 1934-1987… Our entire existence will one day be represented by a single dash. Ask yourself, how important is this situation in the context of that dash? Will I even remember this situation 10 years from now? No? Then let it go now…”

Funnily enough, I have done exactly what the snippet above suggests, during my brief stay in Venice back in 1997, when I accidentally alighted at the wrong place when heading out to Murano. šŸ™‚

In 5 years, 10 years, what will YOU remember? What legacy do you want to leave behind?
