I don’t know about you, but I’m not a saint.
When I look across my life, despite an enormous amount of grace and joy, there are things I regret. I’ve hurt people and, at times, failed to be the person I thought I was.
But that’s not my whole story, and I hope it won’t be my legacy.
I’ve also loved deeply. I’ve been fiercely loyal. I’ve encouraged and protected. And I am working to use my life to help you find greater meaning in yours. That is the legacy I am trying to build.
What legacy are you working to build?
This week’s intention
People are a complex mix of good and bad. All the things we do (and have done) are part of who we are. It has taken me time (almost 40 years) to be at peace with that. I’ve worked to forgive some of my past faults and focus instead on my current actions.
My intention is to point my actions toward the legacy I want to leave.
“Legacy” appears as just a word, but embedded in that word are a bunch of questions.
- What will I use my skills and talents for?
- How will my life make a difference?
- Who will I serve?
- How do I want to be remembered?
This week, I want you to sit with these questions. Pray and journal on your ideal answers to them. It’s OK if you don’t know the answers yet, but asking the questions will awaken your journey.
Wishing you a peaceful week. See you soon!
