I think we all get to certain places in our lives when we start to explore our meaning here on Earth. Usually, these are the harder times in life but sometimes we don't get to them until the end, when we face our own mortality.
Exploring meaning, thinking back on what we have done in our journey can often lead us into creating a Legacy Project. This is a way of taking all the deep inner work and showcasing it for our loved ones to keep - memorializing who we are and who we were for those who come after us.
These projects can be in many forms like scrapbooks or scrolls, art pieces and memoirs. Whatever best expresses who you are and how you wish to be remembered.
For me, when my time comes, I thought it would be nice to have pre-cut paper and art supplies out so that when people come to visit, they can create art with me. Once I have died, these can be collected and put together in a scrapbook or art journal.
But I also like the idea of a Life Journey Journal. I found a simple but well done one on Amazon, My Life My Journey created by Kyle Schaetzl. It divides up the seasons of our life and asks some fun and often deep questions to get us thinking and when done will give others and great idea of who we are and how we lived.
I think a book like this would be a great gift and also something a dying person and their loved ones could work on together as a type of Legacy Project.
What we do in life echoes in eternity - how do you wish to be remembered?
