When I was growing up, it mattered what people thought of me, but I didn’t think about how that would eventually tie in with my legacy, or what legacy I would leave behind.
As we go about our daily lives, do we think about our legacy and what that will have on others? Perhaps it is something we should be thinking about it. But the issues we deal with sadly become our legacy, particularly the way we behave with other people.
Sadly, I have seen what happens when someone leaves a legacy behind that no one else would own. Unfortunately, even with the good things we do, one bad decision can change everything, it doesn’t matter what’s gone before.
Even if we go on to make good in our lives after a past we’re not proud of, the past still tends to follow us, but everyone deserves a second chance. Whatever we achieve this side of life, it’s always nice for people to think good thoughts about us when we’re on the other side of life.
I very much believe that our legacies do matter.
