What kind of footprints would you like to have left after you are gone?
I would like to leave Love and Peace for all the people in the world. And this footprints can be left only by the personality that you have made in all your life
What Kind of footprints would I like to have left when I am gone? A very thought provoking question. I think I would want to leave a very light footprint; Not one to be followed. I was productive; I worked for a living for myself and others. I didn’t steal and I seldom lied except to protect others. But, I don’t think I would want anyone following in my footprints for I have made more than my share of mistakes in life. I have done many good things, but I have done things I would not want others to have to do. I have tried to learn a lesson with each thing I have done, whether it is a positive lesson or one of those life lessons one should remember not to do again.
Maybe that is part of the footprint I would like to leave behind. As you walk through life you should learn something new every day, don’t forget the mistakes you make nor the good you do. You can avoid making the mistakes a second time, and share the idea of doing good with others. But don’t follow in the footprints I have left behind, for many days I wandered confused and sometimes lost. I am still finding my own way even though I am older.And I would hope that when I am gone people in my life will remember that I was gentle with my world, I cared deeply about them, I tried my best, and I never gave in, never gave up.
I hope to instill in my children the importance of family and the importance of love and life. Living life to its fullest and it is better to have loved and lost to have never loved at all. Take a chance on things otherwise you wont grow as a person. I hope to leave these things behind.
Excellent food for thought. The footprints of unconditional love!
I agree with lilmissbookworm. I would like to think that someday I would leave my mark on the world (hopefully with my writing). But until then the legacy I pass on will be in my daughters who will hopefully turn out to be smart, strong willed, honest, kind, faithfull, and kind. Just like their father.
I would like to leave large ones, so large people would know who left them just from the size.
Hopefully that my kids won't make the same mistakes I did.
Size 13. Just kidding, sorry I had to say that. Honestly, I just want to enjoy each day as it's own gift. The when I look back I don't want to have any regrets.
My goal in life is to be a bopreneur (helping those at the Bottom of the Pyramid, the 3% of the worlds poulation living well below the poverty line). At any rate, I will continue to work towards this goal and hope to spark an interest in others to get involved. We are after all, all related. Great question!

What kind of people do you respect?I usually see people respecting famous and rich people. But my view is entirely different. It's through the direct interaction with a person that makes me decide if I should respect the person or not. What is your opinion?
