SARAH SPEAKS: THEY REMEMBER WHEN YOU'RE GONE

Sunset at Marina Resort, Calabar

Life can be so fickle and meaningless at times. I mean you're there one moment, then gone the next, but what defines you when you're gone? And does it really matter what legacy you leave behind?

This year alone, I can't begin to count the number of celebrities or influential people that have passed, the most recent ones being Prince and Papa Wemba. But if there is one thing to note about all their deaths is that people only remembered them when they were gone. No body really cared to give them tributes or play their music when they were still living.

So what am I trying to say? Well, while it is important to live an impactful life, it's more important to live a life that makes you happy. Because the truth is people only care when you are relevant. Think of those singers, the world didn't shout or talk while they were still here on the planet.

Stop worrying about, what other people would say, and make descions and choices that make you happy. Because at the end of the day, they only remember you when you're gone.

  3. I think we human beings were created in a very funny way. We all egoistic naturally and we only care when something is not working right like when you better than someone you give them advice but the moment they start becoming better than you you don't even want to hear from them.
    In the end its all about the life you lived in your years that count cause people only gonna sympathise and care when its too late!
    Thanks Sara for reminding us
