If you've never been fired or laid off before, it's a very interesting feeling. While you're working for a particular company, people are either saying nice things or nothing at all. It's when you leave that the real truth comes out. You start to hear things from certain people, whether true or not, that you never would have heard otherwise. Before you know it, your story is being told by secondhand people for better or for worse. Gets you thinking about how you want to be remembered...

Personally, I want to be remembered as someone who gave hard and loved hard. Someone who was always willing to help those that needed it. Someone who always went hard and gave it his all every single day. Someone that never quit. Someone that made others better. Someone that made the most of the time that he was given.

How do you want to be remembered?
