What do you want to be known for?

What do you want to be known for?

Such a beautifully powerful question to ask yourself on a regular basis, don’t you think? I love the idea of a legacy, and being mindful of the things you want others to feel about you. For me it is not about what others ‘think’ of me, that is none of my business. It is about how I make others feel, how my child feels about me and what they know me for, what the world around me knows me for. Such a lovely thing to ponder and journal or list.
