A New Perspective

Posted on January 6th, 2005

Well the past few weeks have been a bit of an eye-opener for me… so many things have been happening to the people around me, and it’s really starting to affect me.

There have been incidents over the Christmas holidays that have been on my mind, there have been changes, and there have been deaths. It’s this last one that has hit me the most, especially in the past month or so. People close to me have been losing loved ones, or are close to losing them, and I’m left speechless in compassion and sympathy.

Contemplating one’s mortality is something really profound, and I’ve been forced to do a fair bit of this recently. Aside from the whole life-after-death concern, there’s also a matter of what I have (and haven’t) accomplished in life. Would I be remembered for having good, admirable traits, or would people remember me for all of the times when I’ve been a jerk (and there have been many)? This has really bothered me, and I’m going to try and make a conscious effort to do the admirable things… to be remembered for the good things.

I owe an apology to a lot of people.. people to whom I have acted unjustly. I emplore you to accept my apology, and trust that I am trying to change.
