What impact do you want to have in this lifetime?

When I think about what kind of impact I want to have in this lifetime, I immediately think about my babies. I think about all the things I want to teach them, the things I want them to know deep down in their souls.

I want them to know how a simple act of kindness, something that can seem insignificant to them at the time, can completely change someone’s day, week, year or even outlook on the future. I want to teach them the importance of being genuine, being true to who they are – to always listen to that inner voice because it will never lead you wrong. I want them to understand how important it is to love with their whole heart and that it is okay to be vulnerable, emotional and even scared. I want them to know that we all fall down, we all get hurt, but it’s how we fight to stand back up and put one foot in front of the other that makes us stronger, better versions of ourselves.

Leaving behind a legacy, having a lasting impact on the lives of others, whether it’s a select few or  tens of millions, all begins with helping people.  That’s the impact I want to have, that’s the legacy I want to leave behind – a  legacy of love, storytelling, and tons of fun, happy, laugh until you cry memories.

What impact do you want to leave behind? I’d love to hear about it!
