Personal History

I've been thinking about how people leave a legacy in history. We have many lives. These range from the most private thoughts to the most public exposure. There are people who share these with us, but how much do we really share?

Here is my question to my LJ friends. What history would you leave if you passed away tomorrow? Assume you could hover over those left behind. What emotions would you feel as they went through your personal possessions? Would it be closer to joy or embarrassment? What would you leave behind at home and your workplace? Would those close to you have a different reaction than those who are social or work acquaintances?

What if the end was near but not quite here. Would you rearrange some part of your life if you had warning?
