Thinking Aloud on My Birthday: Choose A Good Legacy

I pray for those who are still lost in the jungle of life; ignorant of the existential realties in the world.
Life is more than having a meal ticket otherwise called your paycheck or salary.
If your life is not worth more than your salary then your worth will amount to nothing more than just your salary. And the day you collect your last salary in life that is the day you will realise that what matters most in life is not earning a seven figure salary, but what you have done with every moment spent in the journey of life for the best or for the worst.
