What will be yours?
Seriously, think about it, how do you want others to think of you after you’ve moved on to your world of spirit. I know not of all you readers will believe in the after life, but I do, and for justifiable reasons, too any things happen in my experience that just shouldn’t or couldn’t, but did.
Back to my Q.
My legacy? I’d like to think of my legacy as someone who has always sought to leave a lasting positive impression on people whenever it is possible to do so.
I also take chances, go to places, and do things where most of my peers may be reluctant to do or go- I label this as a means to nurture self-growth.
I would also like to think that I am someone with a rich sense of humour, I like to laugh a lot… and dance!
I am also someone who is not afraid to cry in public; I like to think that this means I am in tune with the feelings of others and myself, and free to publicly sympathise or empathise emotionally without feeling embarrassed.
I also know that I am old school in terms of values and tradition – good manners, speaking when spoken to, try to be honest though failing sometimes, being silent when needed, dressing smart in public, smiling or saying hello to strangers from whatever background or hue etc.
Most of all, I like to think that I am someone who provokes inner reflection, trigger the non typical thought process in others, inspires, motivates and empowers.
Of course it sound like I am Mr. Perfect, but as you look back through this site, I also acknowledge my failings, and said failings are embraced, so that I limit the potential to repeat them.
Legacy. When I visit a cemetery I spend time reading what’s written on the headstones.
There are those, whose stones demand a read, are surrounded in flowers, gifts and cards, clearly displaying immense respect and love – and sadly there are those that seem to reflect outwardly on whether the deceased was ever loved at all or had anyone who cared.
Hmm, perhaps I think too much.
