Lesson 11: Remember Me For Centuries How Very Sweet

It's a Wonderful Life

Remember Me For Centuries How Very Sweet

 

While I believe that in the end our lives here on earth are but a blink of an eye.  So, being remembered for centuries as a person of great significance might be like three blinks.  It is still worth the effort.  Maybe it is through having children of my own or maybe it is through losing people I loved, that has made me realize poignantly that life is fleeting.  This realization has made me ponder many times how I would like to be remembered.  Is it possible to be remembered for centuries?  That would be so very sweet.

 

Change Your Sphere of Influence

 

Not only is it possible to be remembered for centuries, but it is even possible to be amazing most of your days.  But, this is totally your choice.  If your life is a joke, then do something about it.  One step each day and perhaps one day you will be sprinting forward like you never even thought possible.  First, focus on being your best, on becoming a more passionate person, on giving more and being more.  Then, take some time to really figure out how you can positively and lastingly change your sphere of influence, one meaningful life at a time.

Great Lyrics Can Help

 

Did I ever mention that I love music?  True.  I enjoy most kinds of music.  I find music to be very moving and often inspiring.  I use music to work out with and music to come down from a long day at work.  I often listen to specific songs because I know that I will sing them in my head throughout the day.  I try to put good thoughts, lyrics, phrases in my head to help ponder and lead compassion.  The first set of lyrics I would like to share with you is from a band called, Switchfoot.  This song is a tremendous song – great lyrics.  Enjoy!

Switchfoot Lyrics for their song, This Is Your Life

Yesterday is a wrinkle on the forehead

Yesterday is a promise that you’ve broken

Don’t close your eyes, don’t close your eyes

This is your life and today is all you’ve got now

Yeah, and today is all you’ll ever have

Don’t close your eyes

Don’t close your eyes

This is your life, are you who you want to be?

This is your life, are you who you want to be?

This is your life, is it everything you dreamed that it would be?

When the world was younger and you had everything to lose

Yesterday is a kid in the corner

Yesterday is dead and over

This is your life, are you who you want to be?

This is your life, are you who you want to be?

This is your life, is it everything you dreamed that it would be?

When the world was younger and you had everything to lose

Don’t close your eyes

Don’t close your eyes

Don’t close your eyes

Don’t close your eyes

This is your life are you who you want to be?

This is your life are you who you want to be?

This is your life, are you who you want to be?

This is your life, are you who you want to be?

This is your life, is it everything you dreamed it would be

When the world was younger and you had everything to lose

And you had everything to lose

I would also like to share the lyrics to Fall Out Boys song, Centuries.  I have no idea what the meaning of all the lyrics are, and I am making no statement of support at all for Fall Out Boy.  I am only sharing this song with you because I  think the phrase, ‘Remember me for centuries’ is very catchy, easy to remember, which might help you.  They say that people are very motivated and remember things way better with visuals.  I agree.  How about visuals and audio!

Fall Out Boy’s lyrics for their song, Centuries

Some legends are told
Some turn to dust or to gold
But you will remember me
Remember me for centuries
And just one mistake
Is all it will take
We’ll go down in history
Remember me for centuries
(Hey yeah, oh hey, hey yeah)
Remember me for centuries

Main chorus again:

Some legends are told
Some turn to dust or to gold
But you will remember me
Remember me for centuries
And just one mistake
Is all it will take
We’ll go down in history
Remember me for centuries
(Hey yeah, oh hey, hey yeah)
Remember me for centuries

Legacy.  Too deep?  I don’t think so.  Making a difference, leaving a generation after generation legacy of compassion, kindness, significance – those are qualities worth living for.  Those are traits worth planning for.  Remember me for centuries how very sweet.
