What We Leave Behind.

Legacy

In my mind it is my reason for being. My souls driven purpose. The thought of leaving this existence without leaving behind a track record of more rights than wrongs is a thought that haunts me. It is a lot of who I am, and at certain points in my life I have almost forgotten about it depending on the temporal issues at hand.

It took time to shape the way I wanted a legacy to look like and to this day it is still an evolution of thought and action. The wealth I want to leave the loves of my life is both rich in material and abundant in hope. A hope that my legacy will in turn make them choose to want to do the same. Hopefully one day my legacy will include at least a few lives impacted through words of insight and encouragement.

What we leave behind is as important as who we leave it for.  My worth can never be dictated by another person, so may my eyes forever remain open to the knowledge that tomorrow is another opportunity to leave something behind and impact a life.

Until next time.  Love, LO

Our path. Hopefully, it is the shortest distance between two points. Well, at least that is what we all strive for. Most of us look for the shortcut, a way to unearth that predetermined path of least resistance. What if….and I say “if”, the path of least resistance is the worst path of them all?
There are things that could have been, and things that should have been. These outcomes are weighted by our own decisions.

The things that could be, are within our grasp, paths that are just still in need of a little illumination by the ones that walked it before us.

The things that should have been, become a blurred memory of either regret or self education.

Either way we look at it, we go through what we go through so that we may not just light our own path, but the paths of others. Illumination was created for the sole purpose of igniting one’s lost passions, and reigniting our own passions.

The difference can be made one way or the other. Whether it is through art, love, counsel, or written words, choose to illuminate your own path, so that we all can find our own way.
