Daily Prompt: Don’t You Forget About Me

“Imagine yourself at the end of your life. What sort of legacy will you leave? Describe the lasting effect you want to have on the world, after you’re gone.” –The Daily Post

Is it weird that I was thinking about this yesterday? Not in a suicidal kind of way. You see, I saw a picture of Nelson Mandela and couldn’t help but wonder how he managed to make such a lasting impact on the world. And in saying that, I don’t literally mean “what did he do?” but rather “why him?” It’s a strange thing when one person is able to make such memorable contributions in the grand scope of life. I wonder if I’ll ever do something so extraordinary that it’s remembered for generations on top of generations.

Fun Fact: Nelson Mandela was also an INFJ

I’m not sure how I could leave such a legacy but this is a topic my mind ponders quite a bit. I almost feel like you have to let go of everything that is holding you back and let destiny play its role.
