Those passion followers work to make their visions into reality, and that new reality can sometimes create a huge impact on the whole world.
As I heard about yet another celebrity death this past week, I started thinking about how different people have different views of other peoples’ legacies. While some people only remember the bad things someone did, other people only see the good. We all should have a mind toward legacy building. Our legacies are the only things left behind of ourselves after we are gone.
Many times in my life, I have found that certain events seem to have overlapping purpose. Sometimes it is from something I have read recently or from conversations with others. These ideas mirror things that I have said, written, or that I am currently thinking. These signs, these validation arrows, are meant to reaffirm our thoughts, feelings, and decisions.
Throughout our lives, we will have many different relationships. Some of these are only for a short time, while others can last a lifetime. Sometimes, we may need to consider a relationship’s purpose. Was it part of our lives for a reason, for a season, or for a lifetime? Having had three serious romantic relationships as a young adult, I feel that each of them fell into one of these purposes.
