Great question: If your legacy was based only on today, what would you do?

I loved the question Jonathan Fields posted on Facebook today:

“If your legacy was based only on today, what would you do?”

This past year, I thought a lot about legacy.   How do I want to be remembered?  Equally important, how do I not want to be remembered?  Sometimes this version of the same question was more compelling for me.  I don’t want to be remembered as the mother who was always too tired or too busy to read a bedtime story, for example.

What do you want to leave behind?  How do you want the world to be different because you were here? 

Are you living an irresistible obituary?

It is the moment by moment decisions you make and the day to day actions you take that will create your legacy.

Did you do something today that would support the legacy you want to leave behind?
