555 Days Towards Level 9000: Day 105.
Time Awake: Initially, 8:49 a.m. But then a few hours later.
I feel refreshed today. The seven hours of sleep seem to have done the trick. My mind is clear, focused. There are things I realize I have to accomplish, all of which have been written down. Step by step.
Today’s entry focuses on legacy. Not legacy in the sense of a multimillion-dollar corporation, making its profits in tiddly winks or matchsticks. I mean personal legacy, which is how people will remember you.
The inspiration for this topic came from work yesterday. I was ringing up a customer who told me that she remembered me. I figured she meant I’m a familiar face because I have been working there for more than six years. She actually remembered me from when I was a child and said that I still have the same face.
This woman worked at the dry cleaners across the street from the church and school I attended as a child. She then talked about my Mom, remembering my Mom’s kindness and care. Essentially, her authentic personality traits.
This is what we will be remembered by. So if you’re a shithead, people will remember you as such. But if you’re otherwise, if you’re kind, generous, loving, whatever your authentic personality traits are, THAT is how people will remember you.
That is legacy.
