What You Leave Behind

We all love a good quote.  A quote can make us think more deeply, stir our soul and even bring about change in our lives.

While they can have some lasting impact we should not be about trying to come up with the next catchy quote or phrase to impact people.

The impact that we ultimately have on people is found and grounded in how our lives intersect and impact those we lead and live with, our daily contacts and even those we may just have a brief encounter with.

If you truly want to leave your legacy be mindful of each daily interaction. 

Be kind.
Be compassionate.
Be full of grace.
Be loving.
Be positive.

If you are going to leave anything behind weave these into people’s lives.

I’m cheering for you.
