I absolutely love the word ‘legend’ – not just because of its definitions but also the sound of the word itself. Go on, say it with me, L-E-G-E-N-D; what an awesome and powerful word. Just saying the word out loud evokes a feeling of being so alive; it actually makes me feel (slightly) invincible!
So, what are the definitions of the word legend:
a: a story coming down from the past especially one popularly regarded as historical although not verifiable – the legend of a lost continent
b: a body of such stories – a place in the legend of the frontier
c: a popular myth of recent origin – the legend of the Loch Ness monster
d: a person or thing that inspires legends – a baseball legend
e: the subject of a legend – its violence was legend even in its own time—
a: an inscription or title on an object (such as a coin) – The quarter bore the legend “In God We Trust”.
b: an explanatory list of the symbols on a map or chart
No matter which way you look at it the word is inspirational, even when it’s guiding you to understand a map or chart!
If the pages of this issue have taught us anything, it’s that everyone has the potential to create their own legacy. The talent in this issue are all mere mortals who dared to go after what they truly believed in and what they wanted to be remembered for. They each found their flow and created something legendary.
In this month’s column I’m going to do something different. I’m going to throw it out there and give all our readers a call to action! I want you to share with me a legendary story with you as the protagonist; the leading character; the LEGEND.
I want to know, what would it look like if you were able to be or do whatever your heart desired; without any doubt, without any self-limiting beliefs and without that saboteur voice in your head that says you couldn’t possibly…rather the voice that says “I CAN”.
Stand in a place that inspires you, feet apart, hands on your waist, head held high and eyes closed. Just breathe slowly until you find your silence, now let all your guard down and allow your imagination and heart take over to show you what you truly desire in life; YOUR LEGEND.
For any of the readers out there who accept this challenge, I would love to hear from you!
Release yourself into the heart of dreams
Bask in the sun of creativity
Let your imagination soar through the clouds of the impossible…
Until you reach the possible.
