Minutes before taking our last final breath, what matters as we near our death? The items we bought, the things that we owned, material possessions bought with cash or with loans.
Memories of mobile phones, or the biggest TV? Or the handbag adorning the label Gucci? The fastest computer, or the latest X-Box? The smartest of suits, the poshest of frocks.
The silver, the gold that decorated your being? The biggest house with the highest of ceilings? The newest car that once filled you with pride? The expensive racing bike that you once used to ride?
Will you remember how Alexa made you feel? The conversations you had that seemed so real.
Did your relationship with her fill you with joy? Alongside memories of gadgets and toys?
Will these things matter as we come to the end? As we reflect on our years, and how they were spent.
Will you have spent more money or spent more time? Doing the things that made you feel truly alive?
Because all that really matters is the love that you shared. The relationships you had, the way that you cared.
The fun, the laughter, the tears, the smiles. All these things make a life worthwhile.
Spend more time with people, less money on possessions.
Don’t let stuff and things become your obsessions.
Prioritise loving, laughing and living, fun and adventure and a life full of giving.
