What Will Your Legacy Be?

When that day comes, when you shall have left this world, what will you have left behind?

Will you have lived your best life? Will you have touched someone’s life? Will you have made a difference? Will you have legacy that will live on?

Beyonce’s I was Here is by far my favourite song and it is a constant reminder to me to live, to love, to do and to be. I’ve spent many years being paralyzed by a fear of the unknown and taking few risks but with each day I now try to make me a little better, a little braver and a little wiser so I can make a difference in the lives of everyone I come in contact with.

If for any reason God should decide that he is ready for me soon I want to be able to smile in my final moments and say “I Was Here!”

Check out the lyrics and video below of my favourite performance of this song by Beyonce (United Nations World Humanitarian Day August 19, 2012).

When I need a pick me up at work or even at home I watch this performance to remind myself that I am here for a greater purpose. there is more to life than my current limitations and one day I will look back on this very situation and smile knowing that I Was Here

I Was Here…

Artist: Beyonce
I wanna leave my footprint on the sands of time.
Know there was something that, meant something that I left behind.
 
When I leave this world, I’ll leave no regrets, 
Leave something to remember, so they won’t forget
I was here…

I lived, I loved

I was here…

I did, I’ve done, everything that I wanted

And it was more than I thought it would be.

I will leave my mark so everyone will know

I was here


I wanna say I lived each day until I die  
And know that I meant something in somebody’s life
The hearts I have touched will be the proof that I leave

That I made a difference, and this world will see

I was here…

I lived, I loved

I was here

I did, I’ve done, everything that I wanted

And it was more than I thought it would be

I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here 
I lived, I loved

I was here

I did, I’ve done, everything that I wanted

And it was more than I thought it would be

I will leave my mark so everyone will know

I was here


I just want them to know 
That I gave my all, did my best

Brought someone to happiness

Left this world a little better just because

I was here
I was here 
I lived, I loved

I was here

I did, I’ve done, everything that I wanted

And it was more than I thought it would be

I will leave my mark so everyone will know

I was here.
I lived (I lived), I loved
I was hereI did, I did (I’ve done), 
I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here

I did, I’ve done
I was here…

Keep in touch and I’ll keep you posted on my progress!
