Day 23: A Way In Which You Want To Be Remembered

Everybody will die, one way or another. Unless you’re one of the Cullens, then maybe you can stay on this planet for centuries. (Not that I am a fan. I have watched the movies, just because.) As for day 23’s topic, I had to think of a way in which I want people to remember me by. At first, I thought it would be something written in my tombstone. But then again, I don’t even know what should or would be written on my tombstone come my judgement day. I don’t really know how my friends and family would remember me once I depart from this world. I wouldn’t also know what words will be described of me when that happens.

In my 26 years in this world, I know I have lived my life. But I know that I still have a lot to learn and I still have a loooooong way to go (I am not going anywhere! Not yet!). I know I have given my genuine self to my friends, family and loved ones. I do hope they remember me the way I see my self:

As a thoughtful and loving daughter… Because in spite of being stubborn (which is most of the time as they would say), I like making them feel important and loved by yours truly. I love planning surprises for them, and I like to spoil them. I have my own way of making them know that I love them even though I tend to go against them (which is quite often as well). Hahaha.

As a loving, understanding, patient, faithful and loyal wife… Because I promised to give my self fully to my husband, in front of God, for better or for worst, til death do us part. ♥

As a nurturing and protective mother to my future children… Because I know I will do my best to be a good mother. I have envisioned myself to be completely hands on my children, involved in their lives and guide them through life as much as I could.

As a sweet grand daughter… Because I grew up with my grand parents (Mom’s side), I have a soft spot for old people. I love my Mama so much, and if I could make her stay forever, I would.

As a shoulder to lean on or cry on… Because even though I am not an expert in solving problems, I am always ready to lend an ear and a shoulder for a friend. I am not a psychology graduate, but I try my best to understand and use my instinct to offer an advise. Bombard me all you want, I won’t give up on you. 🙂

As a forgiving person… Because I can’t stand having enemies. I don’t want any issues spoiling my relationships especially with relatives. Blood will always be thicker than water. Understanding is my most powerful weapon. And I don’t hold grudges.

As a generous person… Because as long as I can manage, I will always be willing to share.

As a loyal friend… Because I have plenty of friends and I can say I am their “bra” — their supporter. Hahaha. No matter how far apart we are, or how long it has been since we spoke, I don’t forget a friend. 🙂

As a host… Because I love hosting get togethers and parties at home. I love preparing and welcoming my friends at home. I like making them comfortable enough to let them be and leave them in our house without worrying.

As a playful, happy and crazy girl… Because despite of being a married, 26 year old woman (can’t believe I’m calling myself a woman now), there is still a child in me. I love making my friends, and even my parents, laugh because I like seeing them happy. And just because I am married and in my mid 20’s doesn’t mean I don’t know how to have fun (good and clean, of course).

As a believer of God… Because I take my strength from Him. No matter how strong I think I am or how strong people think I am, I breakdown once in a while. God is still the greatest source of strength. And my friends and family are His instruments sent to my rescue here on earth.

I am not perfect, and nobody is. This is me, my friends and family knows that. I have made mistakes, asked for forgiveness, and learned. People may say different things about me, and I will never know. But this is me. I guess I’ll just let life take its course and let my obituary be a suspense for the meantime. I am in no hurry, anyway.
