Leaving a Legacy
It is said that everyone has a book inside of them. If you could write a book, what would the topic be? My uncle wrote a book on seashells. My dad has spent years on a book on Japanese stamps. My book on stress relief was just published. What about the title? What would the illustrations look like? By answering these questions you can begin to uncover your passions. So many people have lost sight of what brings them joy. The heaviness of life replaces the childlike wonder that we once possessed.
The time to start writing is now. Start to record your thoughts, your knowledge and your passion. Everyone wants to leave a legacy to the world. They want their family and friends to remember them and also want to leave a lasting mark on the world. A book is a wonderful way to accomplish this. It does not matter if you only have a few readers or if you make the best seller list, as long as you re-ignite your inner joy and provide those you love with a bit of your true self.
A book, a blog, an article or a letter – it does not matter what you write, just as long as you write something. You will gain clarity and your family will gain a lasting legacy.
