“I Was Here!”

It’s another Saturday, another Weekend, another day to celebrate Legends, another opportunity to gaze into the lives of the greats and see what made them.

One of the ways to tap into the secrets of successful people is to listen to what they say.

Earlier this week after the loss of a loved one, I shared what I thought would happen “If I Die Tonight“, and it was eye opening for me. I took out time to consider the kind of Legacy I’d leave if I were to leave this earth, and today we listen to the words of the multi award winning American R&B recording artist; Beyoncé, as she sings about the kind of Legacy she’d like to leave herself.

What Would You Like Generations to come to Know about You?

How Would You Like them to think of You?

What will be recorded of You after You Leave?

What would YOU leave that will say just like the lovely Beyoncé; “I Was Here

I WAS HERE!

“I wanna leave my footprints on the sands of time

Know there was something that, meant something that I left behind

When I leave this world, I’ll leave no regrets

Leave something to remember, so they won’t forget

I was here

I lived, I loved

I was here

I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted

And it was more than I thought it would be

I will leave my mark so everyone will know

I was here

I wanna say I lived each day, until I die

And know that I meant something in somebody’s life

The hearts I have touched will be the proof that I leave

That I made a difference, and this world will see

I was here

I lived, I loved

I was here

I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted

And it was more than I thought it would be

I will leave my mark so everyone will know

I was here

I just want them to know

That I gave my all, did my best

Brought someone some happiness

Left this world a little better just because

I was here

I was here

I lived, I loved

I was here

I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted

And it was more than I thought it would be

I wanna leave my mark so everyone will know

I was here…”


I really want to know that when I’m done with my assignment on earth that I did EVERYTHING I wanted and it will be more than I thought it would be. Anytime I listen to this song, the feelings of heroism that is stirred up in me is incredible, the blend of the legendary lyrics and the iconic voice will surely not leave you the same (you can get the actual song here)

Beyoncé- I Was Here

“I wanna leave my footprints on the sands of time. Know there was something that, meant something that I left behind,When I leave this world, I’ll leave no regrets, Leave something to remember, so they won’t forget: I was here” – Beyoncé

Don’t Fear Death, prepare for it, for if there’s anything that WE ALL have in common it’s that We are alive and of course will surely one day die. Only that the death of some shakes the earth more than others.

YOU are NOT to Young Or Too Old to think about the quality of Your Life, ponder on these questions as you set your house (& Life in order);
