So as you know, when I launched the new blog rebrand in mid-January, a big part of that brand is:
Now, I have had time to mull this over, toss it around, and really evaluate what it means to me to #LeaveYourLegacy. So today, I'm going to share what it means to me, and I hope that at the end of this post that you can share with me what LEAVING A HEALTHY AND ACTIVE LIFESTYLE LEGACY means to you.
When I think about what kind of Legacy I want to leave, so many things come to mind.
First off, who am I LEAVING a LEGACY for!?!
The obvious answer is my family. My son (future children). Beyond those that are closest to me that I love the most though, I want to impact even more than that. Even if it's only in small ways, I want my LEGACY to trickle into other's lives. My friends, those that I teach, my blog followers, even strangers that I just have random (fate) encounters with. I want to live a LIFESTYLE that is real, and bold enough that people can see the depth of me and pick up on little pieces of that, that can change their lives.
Secondly, what kind of LEGACY am I LEAVING!?
I want to be strong, bold, courageous. I want to be a pursuer of goals, a dreamer, a person who thrives in the adventures (whether big or small) of life. I want to be real, and authentic. I want my children to grow up knowing that they can do anything that they set their minds to. Anything that they have vision for, they can pursue. I want people to see the go-getter-ness within me, and be inspired to push a little harder, and go a little further to achieve their dreams and desires. Mostly, I want to leave a LEGACY that impacts lives, upon lives, upon lives to come. I want to be real in who I am, in my health, and fitness goals. I want people to know that they can get healthy and active, no matter where they are starting. And I want them to see that living a healthy and active lifestyle really means that they will be living their best, most successful life possible.
WHY? Why does all of this mean so much to me?
I believe that when we are living a healthy & active lifestyle, that we are able to live Our Best Life. Our Happiest Life. Our Most Successful Life. Wondering why I say that?? Because when we are healthy and active, we have more self confidence. When we are moving, and doing things that are good for ourselves, taking care of our bodies, then we feel secure, and confident. Which means that we will love ourselves, which means that it will be easier for our children to love themselves and be confident just by watching us. When we are healthy and active, we are able to move, and do so many things. We have the ability to take chances, enjoy life's adventures, and even simpler than that, not be afraid to get on the floor or run around the yard with our children. When we are healthy, we spend less money on doctor bills, surgeries, and diseases, which means we have more money in our pockets. And although, of course money isn't the key to all happiness, it does ease our minds of worry and stress and make us feel happier in life. When we are healthy & active, we are not afraid to face life head on. We are able to be BOLD, CONFIDENT, STRONG people who go after their dreams, and that, that makes us HAPPY!
