Life is funny that way, you know?
The way it laughs at your plans.
Taunts you with destiny.
Even mocks you.
Enough time goes by, though, and your perspective changes.
You begin to see life for what it truly is.
A beautiful journey with no real destination.
A series of moments strung together.
The majority of which go missing.
What you truly end up with is a bucket full of wisdom.
A presence with yourself that’s exhilarating.
Because it brings you right to the stage.
Like a magician with only one trick.
A pocket full of coins.
A bag of riches.
The kind of wealth you can only pass on while you’re still here.
Preserving your legacy and inspiring the groundwork of others.
Handing those coins out one by one.
Until they’re gone.
Until you’re gone.
Then your legacy lives on for as long as it can.
Inspiring people you never knew.
Inspiring your love.
