    My legacy of helping others and tonight I was reminded of that. I need to do a little research over the weekend to assist my daughter.

    Nurturing the Possibilities – listening to my Soul’s wisdom and following the charm that leads me to feeling more gratitude and joy. Taking time throughout the day to reconnect to my values, my spirit, my mission, in amongst the chaos that is everyday living. Embracing the lovely quote by Maya Angelou – “This is a wonderful day – I haven’t seen this one before”. Love it!

    I don’t consider this life a living legacy. Perhaps a moment-by-moment unfolding. Nurturing a new possibility, well that would require an openness and deep listening to Divine will.

    To have patience I’m working on me. I am a work in progress, but God isn’t finished with me yet.

    Not certain what this question is getting at. So, I will just say that currently I’m trying to get my physical and mental health in order so I’m just focusing on taking each day as it comes.

    I’ve worked in public policy one way or another most of my life and have always worked for change. My energy has always been directed toward things I think of as saving the world–after all, someone has to! This quotation from Pres. Obama came to mind when I read this question: “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” – Barack Obama
    Today I have a meeting with advocates. I’m currently a public employee and can’t take the actions they can. I’ve been them in past roles and I remember what I didn’t know about how systems of change work in state government (slowly, slowly). What I can do today is share my experience and information that will help them be better at the things they can do, and listen closely to what they’re hoping for that may in fact be within my scope.
    I’m also a parent, and all my actions end up being some sort of legacy for my children. For people who aren’t parents, they still have others whose lives they affect in some way. This question has me thinking now about how I share some of my thoughts with my daughters and stepchildren about what it means to live a good life and be a good person, and how I might do that more often without preaching at them. Each of us is a rock thrown into a pond. What ripples are we sending out?

    The “legacy I am living”?, I’m not sure
    what that means. I am a simple person
    and I don’t think in terms of a personal
    legacy. I know that I have had some
    affect on many people, as I have been a
    pretty social person with lots of
    opportunities to connect with people,
    and that is the only “legacy” I will be
    leaving behind. I will continue to
    nurture these connections and make
    myself available to help out when needed.
    I’m curious to see how the rest of you
    answered this question.

    The word “legacy” implies a long lasting impact. I guess I could ask myself what I am still doing because of an old belief, assumption or agreement with myself? And is it getting me the results that I want? I think we all have a filter system that we developed to feel safe and secure. Perhaps, a self-inventory is needed. Old habits die hard. Perhaps, it’s time to see with new eyes. The disciple ask the Master to define spirituality and the Master replied, “Awareness…Awareness…Awareness.” John Michael Talbot’s song (St Theresa’s Prayer) comes to mind. It is a Christian hymn but its message implies what all religions teach. That we Be the peace and compassion we seek.

    Christ has no body now but yours
    No hands, no feet on earth, but yours
    Yours are the eyes through which He looks
    Compassion on this world
    Yours are the feet with which He walks
    To do good
    Yours are the hands
    With which He blesses all the world
    Yours are the hands
    Yours are the feet
    Yours are the eyes
    You are His body
    Christ has no body now but yours
    No hands, no feet on earth, but yours
    Yours are the eyes through which He looks
    Compassion on this world
    Christ has no body now on earth
    But yours

    Like others this question has me a bit perplexed. Maybe my mond is just not engaged this morning! I just am going to be mindful of the decisions I make today and each day…are they a good choice. One foot in front of the other…and being mindful to be grateful. Wishing you all a wonderful day.

    To nurture the idea that change of mindset and behaviors along with living for the present moment I have been given. To accept with gratitude the possibility to live with out judgement or fear of the known and unknown. To continue my recovery journey each day as it arrives for I am not guaranteed the next.

      Thanks for the reminder to “live without….fear of the known and unknown”. This is something I’m struggling with right now. So this reminder to “continue….each day as it arrives for I am not guaranteed the next” was a good one. Thank you.

    April is Donate Life month – as I work for a Tissue Bank I like to advocate for organ/tissue donation. Part of my legacy includes my work- which I take pride in. Consider being a hero and help to save/improve others lives. Register to be a donor. [donatelife.net]

      Sorry, I had to do that 😁
      Thank you for your work on this.

      MIchele, I’m a registered organ donor in the state of Kansas but the gift of a long life that I’ve been given may mean that my body parts will be too worn out to help another!

    To nurture the new possibility in my life today, I will simply pray for it and trust that it is all going to be well. We are expecting news on some funding for our business from a non-profit group that helps new local entrepreneurs. I am excited to hear from them later!

    Similar to Christine, no understanding coming concerning the question, while in the same time, it inspires to open up eyes and heart for being of service wherever I am right now. Two attempts of meditating today had to be interrupted due to “legacy” of old limiting emotional and habit-wise imprints still with me. This could be one possible interpretation of this question and to just let go of these imprints may be a beautiful chance for opening up to hope and trust again and to enjoy and be grateful for this new day. Thank you dearly for this question, dear grateful-team. The sun just appeared again, so another go for meditation will follow and will see what else may be today. 🙏😊🙏

      O. Christina, Well said…I too grappled with the question but realized that it was about opening my eyes. Self awareness brings growth.
