“Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.”
Since impermanence is the only true thing in our lives-that all of our lives will end at some point, then our legacies are the only real thing that we create during our lives. Each and every one of us can change the world! Each and every one of us can and do make a difference every day. However, too many of us believe we have no power to make a difference and that what we do in private and in public doesn't really matter.
Today it is time to be aware of your legacy and how your actions change the world around you. In truth, your legacy is NOT about your accomplishments, the awards you won or whatever your ego has created to make you feel like you are doing something to change the world. But, it is in your every day life! When you show up for the people in your life, even though you’re having a hard day or you are really busy, you make a difference.When you practice what you preach, you make a difference.When you focus more on being kind rather than being right, you make a difference. Today, recognize that it is your everyday actions that are your greatest legacy-start creating a legacy that you can be proud of by being kind and compassionate-you will make a difference.
Just for today, I see the world through eyes of love and acceptance. I recognize that in any situation, I have the choice between love and fear. I choose love. I choose to share my love and compassion with others. They are the greatest gifts I can give. Equality and world peace begin with me. I express kindness and compassion for all. All is truly well in my world. And so it is.
