Dr. Seuss had a lot of amazing life lessons to share with the world and he will certainly be remembered!  It’s phrases like this that leave me both excited and nervous.  Do you feel like that?  When you read it you get instantly jazzed to make it a fantastic day, do something spectacular, make a discovery, win the lottery…. but then you think, “Well I still have to do the dishes and still have to pick up the kids, and I still have to cook dinner… what’s so memorable about that?!”  Am I right?  So it leaves me feeling a little anxious that if this was my last day - how would I really be remembered?  That I wrote some emails, taught a class, and went grocery shopping?   After giving it a little more thought I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s not about WHAT I did today that will be remembered.  The mundane actions of the day will not be listed as my epitaph.  But rather HOW I treated the people I interacted with on this day that will be remembered.  This is the legacy and the memory we all leave behind.   I was recently reading the book The Four Agreements by Don Ruiz and in this book Ruiz talks about living each day as if it was truly our last.  And with that thought in your head treat people around you with grace, kindness, dignity and respect.  If you make this agreement with yourself that you will use your words strictly for good and be truly impeccable with your words then you will be living the fullest life.  So as we go about our day let us treat each other with such kindness and use our words impeccably!  I know I certainly want to be remembered for the wonderful way I made someone feel if this was truly my last day!
