I’ve been in a rather reflective mood of late. My grandmother died recently, which brought back a flood of memories from my childhood and even adulthood.
I remember spending every school holidays at my grandparents’ farm, going horse riding, exploring all the paddocks, talking to the cows, and wandering around the countryside. My grandparents helped instill a love of books in me, and in recent years my grandma and I had similar taste in books. She even got me hooked on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series!
So anyway, it got me thinking about the legacy she has left in the world, and the memories that she has given to me and to all the others that she has affected.
And that leaves me to then wonder…
What is the legacy that you wish to leave upon the world?
And further to that: What are the memories you wish people to have of you?
What do you wish people to be saying about you – now, and in the future?
Have a think about it… 🙂
And then check in with yourself and ask:
Are you doing all that you can to create the impact on people that you wish?
Are you creating the kind of memories that you wish people to have of you?
Are you creating the kind of memories that YOU wish to reflect upon?
Are you making the kind of impact you want on the people you come into contact with?
Are you making the kind of impact you wish to make on the world?
If not….. What are you waiting for?
