At the end of your days, what do you hope to look back on?
For some who live to old age and near the end of their life, it is a time of reflection. What do you hope to be able to look back upon that will give you spiritual peace when that time comes? What will make you feel you succeeded in life? For me, I hope I can look back and say the books I wrote made a difference in this world. That may sound egotistical, yet it is not, for if I write something that helps many people, a few people or just one person to make a positive difference in their life, I can reflect upon that with the sense of a task well-done.

Hoping to make a difference in a small way. Hoping to make my children proud and my ancestors before me.
Success would be to bring a smile to a face in remembrance of me.

One of the world's wealthiest men once stated only kindness matters - this is area I need to work upon.
First become an existentialist. After that, everything sorts itself out.
A happy, peaceful ife and at least one book (or more) that I wrote which left a memory of me.
I want to be able to look back knowing that I have honored Our Lord and Savior through the things that I have done on this earth, and I want to have had a very positive effect on the lives that I have touched in any way.
