When I die…

From the title, you may be expecting this to be a ‘dark’ and ‘depressing’ post. However, this is going to be the total opposite (I hope!)

I always like to think about how I live my life- and with that comes the legacy I leave behind. Will anyone turn up to my funeral? Will people continue to talk bad about me? Will my friends still be my friends?

I guess all these shouldn’t matter; I mean, I’ll be dead… why am I so bothered about the ‘legacy’ I leave behind when I die? But I’m an over thinker. In the words of Aleissa Cara, “I think I think too much.” I guess me worrying about what will happen to me when I die is one of those ‘thinking too much’ moments.

At the end of the day, all I want to do is love the best life than I can. I seem to say this in so many of my blog posts; but if I am nothing but kind, compassionate, happy and healthy then I have successfully lived a good life.

If anything, I want my legacy to be change. I sometimes even worry about this concept because it’s something that’s so hard to achieve. So many people in this world want to make a change, but don’t quite get there. I don’t want to have ‘nearly’ achieved change, I want to do it and me enough influence in this world to achieve just that.

Maybe it’s unrealistic, but if I impact positively on even just one person’s life then I’m pretty happy. All I am to do is be there for people, and I really do thrive off that. I don’t find it exhausting, rather a way for me to help others and just be there.

I hope that I live a long and happy life whilst helping others along the way. I hope that the people who left my life make their way back to me in the end. I hope that I die knowing that I’m proud of all my life accomplishments. I hope I die having experienced real love and having the most amazing friends and family still surround me. I hope I die happy that in the end, everything in my life worked out just how it was meant to.

Love and happiness always,

xo, Becca

  1. This is a beautiful post hun! You really do wrote beautifully. I agree with you on the change, I’d love to make a big dent in society, make a big change. I really get where you are coming from with this. If I’m honest, I’m so scared of death, only because I don’t want to die before my child/ren grow up and have a family of their own.

  2. I love your post Becca! I think it’s good to think about your future and how you want your life to be. It’s hard for a lot of people to think about their death but you’ve turned it into something positive, I love it! Thinking about death only makes you realise the importance of life and it goes by way too fast unfortunately! Have you set any goals that you can work towards as far as meeting some of your expectations?

    • My blog has definitely helped achieve some of these goals, and just setting goals in myself. I’m in a good place at the moment when it comes to meeting these expectations, so hopefully it stays that way X


    • Thank you so much lovely- I’m so glad you enjoyed this. And definitely, it’s something I seem to think about all the time too which is why I’m in such a determined mindset at the moment. Thank you for the lovely feedback. X

  4. I loved reading this and I think these are great goals – I also hope that I can look back and be proud of my accomplishments. I would love to make a change in the field of mental health and like you said, if it makes a difference for one person, it was fully worth it xx
