Legacy. I’ve been thinking about that word a lot this month. Sunday was Mother’s Day and I’ve been thinking about the legacy I’ve received from my mother and the legacy I want to leave my daughter.
The dictionary defines legacy as something handed down from one generation to the next.
The most powerful thing about a legacy is that it is not only about your past, but your future. Have you thought about what your legacy will be? Each day we are given 86,400 to spend. Not money, but seconds. How are you choosing to spend that currency?
What you do with your future is important. I count myself blessed to be in education and see many people making education a part of their legacy.
Education can be passed down to generations and inspiring family to also allow it to be apart of their lives. I once heard a man speaking at a conference and it forever changed my life. He said, “Legacy is like a will. If you leave something in your will to pass down, then you have a will. But if you don’t leave something to pass down, then your will is empty.”
What are you leaving for future generations? For your family? Look into your family and grab the legacy they have passed down to you or make a new legacy like many do with education.
Pursue your legacy.
