Legacy

This week, we realized the anniversary of the crash that killed Kobe Bryant along with his daughter Gianna as well as the other passengers of the helicopter. There is not a doubt in my mind the impact of this crash had on me. It made me wonder about legacy. Kobe was young. I remember him emerging from high school and having the audacity to want to forego college and go directly into the NBA. I could never imagine the impact he would have.

But I do not want to focus on Kobe or his legacy. I want to live my life as he and many of the others who have died during 2020 did. I want to live my life knowing that the actions of my life are focused on making a legacy. I want to make an impact and create change.

How can I do this? The quote mentions “your story”. I believe this means that the actions of my life cannot be focused on leaving a legacy but focused on living the legacy I want to leave. I want to affect people in a positive manor and there are so many ways to do this.

Be kind.

Smile.

Be positive.

Laugh.

Listen.

Be compassionate.

Love.
