Some might think it prideful, even arrogance, to think in terms of legend. I think Freddie Mercury hit it right on the head. Most of us probably shoot too low, rather than too high.
Why not? Why shouldn't you leave a lasting, legendary legacy? Not out of hubris, but out of love, excitement, joy! Because it saturates your cells, it flows from your very being abundantly. You can't help but share what you have SO much of.
What if you gave your VERY best! What if you reached for the most within you and gave Life your ALL? What if – at the end of the game – you didn't leave one drop unsavored?
I'm not saying to go for the ego crown. I'm inviting you to unleash the genius of your gifts and talents. I'm urging you to share your best self, your awesome creations. I'm saying that this adventure is precious and you are too. Leave something that others can build on. Leave something that lifts. Leave something that shows your infinite love and that you came to play all the way.
This exploration brings to mind the countless times I've heard (or it's been implied)… WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? That was supposed to make you tow the line, realize you were too far-reaching. I got this a lot as a woman at work, at home. It's one of the reasons I didn't have many friends growing up. It felt safer, better to be a loner than in a world that totally misunderstood me.
I held fast to what I felt within and knew that I was something more than everyone around me was willing to see. Now, mind you, I was an excellent student so folks thought I was smart. Later on, people found me attractive. And still … there was something in me that said, “You're SO much more, darling!”I AM. And so are YOU! We're LIGHT shaped into LIFE's infinite expressions, so much more to adore and explore.
In today's writing, explore what being a legend means to you. Consider that your excellence is the ultimate in legacy creation.
Let's light up this planet!
