What is your legacy?
This morning the message came through strong, loud and clear - what if we we each have a story to teach? Not just a story to tell but a story to teach.
What is the legacy we’re leaving behind us? Is it a book? Is it being a teacher, a guide, a mentor for others in this realm of everything we have ever learnt along the way of this journey of our life? What is it?
It will be for you to know and for you to discover. I know genuinely that you have the answers within you. What happens in life though is we crush our own dreams and desires. And that stops us from hearing how valuable we are as human beings and how precious our experience of life actually is.
You are the only one who can tell your story. You are the only one who can teach your story. You don’t realise but people are waiting for you to show up. They can see your talent well before you can. Showing up can mean being inspired, being innovative, acting on your ideas.
If you’ve been an entrepreneur, people have seen you create something from nothing before and so, they are waiting for you to show up again. If you haven’t been an entrepreneur, what’s stopping you? There is an expression of your self that is just bursting to come out of you.
How do you know if you’re not honouring your dreams and desires? You make excuses for yourself. You defend yourself to others and yourself. You say all the whys something cannot come to fruition. You say all the reasons why it’s not possible. You don’t believe in yourself. Even when there is a resounding yes we believe in you coming from the stalls.
What if you put that same energy in to creating what IS possible? What then? What might happen? What could happen? Imagine living a life you love that comes wholly and solely from your own imagination? Imagine living a life you love that YOU create? Imagine living a life you love that resonates so loudly with exactly who you are - who you know yourself to be? Imagine the only person you have to account for and to is you.
We came in to this world as blank canvasses and what happened next was haphazard. What if you can intentionally fill your blank canvas now that you know, YOU are the blank canvas?
Remembering that your life to date is not a mistake, there are no mistakes. It’s more about recognising what are the parts of my life that help me to build the story I know only I can teach?
If I didn’t watch that movie, read that book, hear that person speak, or listen to that song, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. So you have something you need to leave behind - a legacy. Do it now, don’t wait. Start creating now. What is the legacy you’ll leave behind?
Hi my name is Angela. I have loved writing since I was able to hold a pencil in my hand. I soon learnt I had a gift of connecting with my ancestors through writing before my 30th birthday.
