The Measure of a Life

How do you measure a life? Are we judged solely by our achievements?

And what would you do to achieve your dreams? How far would you go to pursue a passion?

In the pursuit of success, some are willing to do whatever it takes. Until secrets are uncovered; and they fall from grace.

It is a long way down. Is it worth the price?

Between success and failure is a thin line. All it takes is a moment of weakness.

Or a moment of madness; when the subconscious unravels the dark truths.

A few do bow out in glorious acclaim and celebration; to be worshipped by men for posterity.

And some bow out in heroic tragedy; to be fondly remembered and honoured

And we ask ourselves, is an ordinary life worth living? Are we only remembered when we do great things? Are we all called to be successful?

Or to be faithful?

“I do not pray for success, I ask for faithfulness.” – Mother Theresa

Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what’s to be,
A resting place along the road,
to sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn some things,
but never meant to stay…
