Legacy: Things I wish I would have known when I was fifteen

This week I had the pleasure of reading through the histories of my grandparents. The stories made me smile. I also came to realize a lot of my Janelle-isms aren’t original. A large part of who I am is a product influenced by the ideals passed down from my ancestors. And you know what—I’m okay with that. Some of their wisdom came by very difficult times—no need to go repeated the same steps just to see what it feels like.

This link to our past so important, it helps us see the bigger picture than our selfish selves all the time. Those who came before us left a legacy behind. Do you know what your legacy is, and even more important, are you living up to it?
