Who am I? In a nut shell, I believe that life is a journey of self discovery and collaboration is key to our development.
With that in mind, I believe in discussing life in a candid (unfiltered), no holds barred manner that stimulates personal growth. No one has it all figured out. Thus the sharing and careful consideration of ideas is necessary in the pursuit of a meaningful life.
Leaving a legacy
The idea of living and leaving nothing behind to show that you were here is utterly terrifying to me. This appears to be the fate of most people, to have lived but never existed in the scope of time. I’m convinced that at the top of self-actualization, this is what bothers us most in life.
The dictionary defines a legacy as “an amount of money or property left to someone in a will.”
I disagree with this definition and see a legacy as your contribution to the world. Anything of monetary value can and will be squandered in time but your contribution to society lasts far longer.
Your contribution is the result of your gift. If your gift is cooking then your contribution is your recipes. If you’re an artist then your contribution is your ability to illustrate a concept visually that would otherwise require a 1000 words to explain. We all have something to contribute. This means that leaving a legacy is not a privilege of the rich and powerful but something attainable to all.
I see media as a tool to distribute your contribution in an effective and efficient manner.
And this is how I spend my time, I find ways to help people leave a legacy, a contribution, through different forms of media.
If this resonates with you, then I look forward to you being a part of this journey.
