One day your time on earth will be over; what will be your legacy when that day comes? Will you be known as the person who went after his/her dreams? Everyday that we wake up we are making our mark on this world and the people we come into contact with. So the question,"what is your legacy?' is very important.
The universe has been around for millions of years and our lives are just a spec in the grand scheme of it all. However, what we are more than a blimped in time to our family, friends and the people we come into contact with. Make a difference in the lives you touch.
Our legacy shouldn't be about how how educated we are, big our banks accounts are, how big our houses are, or what position we hold at work. Our legacy should be at our human characteristics, such as how kind or loving we are, how compassionate, or did we take time out to influence another person. These are the things that will live on long after we are gone.
So before you take your last breath make a change, make your life matter; use your life to make a mark on someone else's life.
" Carve your name on heart, not tombstone. A legacy etched into the minds of others and the stories they share about you." Shannon L. Alder
