Thought for the Day ~ What will your Legacy be?


Always do your best……dedicate your life to something that is bigger than you.  Because at the end of the day our soul and spirit are all that we will leave as a legacy so we ought to make sure they are nurtured and loved on this journey of life.  How we choose to go through life and the footprint that we leave is largely a personal decision.  So how do we ensure that we improve our lives on this level.  We need to live as decent a life as possible, we need to judge less and love more, we need to treat everyone we meet with kindness, respect, and dignity.  We have an internal mission that shines its light on the path of life…..and leaves a piece of us in the souls of the lives we touch.              

Our own life experiences especially those of our childhood will influence how we see the world…..but we must use those experiences, whether they be good, bad, or indifferent as a motivation to be the best that we can be.  This motivation is not something that we loudly declare to the world…..rather it lives quietly in our hearts.  It gives us focus, a place for our loving attention to go, and it allows us to measure how we are doing from time to time.  There are things in life that are important, there are a whole lot of things that aren’t.  Having time for loved ones is important….buying the latest gadget isn’t; nurturing our children and teaching them values is important, dressing them in designer fashion isn’t.  Today think about what you do that is important, that counts, and do more of it.

Paulo Coelho said “I ask myself are defeats necessary?  Well necessary or not, they happen.  When we first begin fighting for our dream, we have no experience and make many mistakes.  The secret of life, though is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.  Because , once we have overcome the defeats – and we always do – we are filled by a greater sense of euphoria and confidence.  In the silence of our hearts, we know that we are proving ourselves worthy of the miracle of life. There comes a time when our personal calling is deeply buried in our soul……but it’s still there, because our whole heart is in this journey.”
