Today I was reading a meditation from the Deepak Meditation Series called “Expressing Yourself”. It resonated with me because that is exactly what creating your unique legacy is about. It spoke to the uniqueness of your existence. There are no people alike. That has always fascinated and amazed me. It was especially present when each of my children were born and now with each grandchild – each one being a special and unique miracle. Each one of us has a unique voice and mission in the world. No two are alike.

One of your gifts to yourself, your family, and the world is to share your voice, your wisdom, and your experiences. No one else has had the same one in the way you have it. No one else can fulfill the role that you have. When you share your true self with others they feel comfortable sharing themselves and we all benefit. In my work, it is a constant flow of sharing and experiencing from each other. As my clients share their voice, stories, goals, and solutions it adds to a collective Legacy that we can all draw on. You contribute to a larger Legacy while creating your own Lasting Legacy.   I love this quote by John Green – “You are so busy being YOU that you have no idea how utterly unprecedented you are.” 

You are an amazing collection of stories and experiences that are unique to only you. A wealth of memories and traditions that need to be captured and shared or they will be lost. As Joy Golliver said, “The meaning of life is to find your gift; the purpose of life is to give it away.”
