Life is journey and in the blink of an eye, all that you know and love can change. Time makes no promises to anyone and time is the one think you canít get back. There are moments that go by too fast, like summer breaks, Christmas, vacations and the growth of our children. Itís up to each of us to make the most of our time here on earth.† If you donít take the time to preserve and share your legacy, all that you worked for & cared about could be lost.† Donít let that happen to you.††
Leaving your legacy through the use of pictures, videos, & journals is one way to share your story. Much of your legacy can be summed up in the pictures of your childhood, graduation, marriage, kids, vacations and holidays.† The stories behind these life changing moments are worth preserving but pictures are not enough.† If a picture says a thousand words, you want to make sure theyíre your own.†
Another way to leave your legacy, is to write a journal. Journals are great way to share your thoughts, experiences and how these things shaped who you are as a person. Your writings give people insight into how you grew as a person and why you are who you are. It also allows you the opportunity to transfer your wisdom.
