“What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.” ~Pericles
The FOCUSandFLOW Life Question:
What is your life weaving into the lives of others?
“We may not say the perfect thing or be our best selves in every moment. These moments of our humanness do not need to be engraved in stone nor define what we leave behind. However, we must take responsibility for making things right when we err. Our willingness to engage in relationship recovery efforts, to actively participate in healing relational woundedness, our attempts to connect through our shared human experience, and to foster mutual understanding– these are what linger most powerfully. These things will ultimately mean more, last longer and become woven into the interconnected nature of human relationships over time. It is through our vulnerability and humility that we touch people’s lives in ways that highlight our shared humanity and make a lasting impact in the hearts and minds of others.” ~Shelly Prillerman Harrell
