Life is like a yoga stretch. It isn’t how far you go, it’s the quality of the stretch. Stretch today HMLD *~*
This started in my mind as a reminder that no matter how far you go in life, if you do not leave a legacy, did you do anything worth while?
When I meet potential mates, I ask them, “What kind of legacy do you want to leave?” Often the answer is, “That people think I’m a nice guy.” SERIOUSLY?!?!?!? THAT is what you want to leave as your legacy?
- Not that you helped people?
- Not that you worked hand over fist to build something for the greater good while building happiness for yourself?
- Not that you’ve given your life over to volunteering throughout the year?
- That you helped create some great children who are doing well in the world
When I leave the planet, this existence or just flat out die (depending on your belief system), I want there to be a legacy of change. What and how I do that is too long to share here and will take time to do. I’m not afraid of the journey, the stretch.
When you stretch outside your comfort zone and DO something worth remembering, it builds your own energies and happiness. It brings peace to your life. Whether it brings money or not isn’t the point. Are you living your passions in such a way that you are a beacon?
You can change your stretch. Change your position. Go from building up your children to building a corporation or building your art form one piece at a time. It’s up to you.
What are you stretching to become? What are you hoping to leave as your legacy? I’d love to know so please share below.
