Born a Butthead…Continued.

Maybe it’s just me…

But do you realize that the “legacy” you leave behind has already begun?

 In my last post, I shared about a fear of having friends and family say less than good things about us when we pass on.  I am sure nobody wants our tombstone to say:

Here lies _____________

“Born a Butthead…Lived a Butthead’s Life and Died a Butthead.” 

 Each and everyday we leave a lasting impression on the people we love…our spouse, our children and grandchildren, our friends and co-workers.  

We leave a legacy of:   

  • Love

  • Hate

  • Neglect 

  • Commitment

  • Pride

  • Attitude

  • Lack of Love

  • Work Ethic

  • Inconsistency

  • Judgemental Spirit

  • Mediocrity

  • Disobedience 

  • Jealousy

  • Anger 

We leave these traits, good or bad, in our home, church, school or college.  It is left at our workplace and within our circle of friends.  It is evident in the way we “win” or “lose” when we play a game.  It is seen on the golf course , the gym and the bowling alley.  What we do in public and what we do in the privacy of our homes is equally as important.  We are continually passing on our “legacy” each and every day.  It never stops until our time on earth is done. 

What will be your legacy?  What will you leave behind?  What footprints have you left for your children to follow?  What will your grandchildren know about you?

Despite of any failures and mistakes that we have had in our life, the challenge for all of us, is to commit to a legacy that is honorable for the rest of our lives.

I think it is one of the most important things you can do.

Your Legacy depends on it…

But then again, maybe it’s just me.
