Good morning, and welcome back to 100 Days of Blogging. Today’s question comes to us from the Life category and the card says, “What do you want your legacy to be?”
To quote Lin-Manuel Miranda (probably quoting someone else), “What is a legacy? It’s planting seeds in a garden that you don’t get to see.” So while I do have things I want to be a part of my legacy, I ultimately have no choice in what my legacy is.
But ultimately, what I want my legacy to be is for me to be a lawyer who fought for the little guy and the underdog, an author that brought joy to people, and a Christian that did his best to love people and show them the love of Jesus and followed his commands the best he could.
I would also want to be remembered as someone who loved his family and cared for those close to him. Someone that people knew they could rely on when they needed help. I would want to be known as someone who cared, ultimately.
But like I said above, ultimately I’m not the arbiter of my legacy, those that tell the story of my life after I’m gone are the ones that determine my legacy.
