Queen Legacy: Will that be you?

October 22, 2014 by  
Filed under Blog

Oprah Winfrey, the late Dr. Maya Angelou and Beyonce.  As you read those names, what comes to mind?  Powerful and independent may be some of the words that come to the surface; but more importantly, each of these women have and continue to leave a legacy.  In honor of daily celebrating womenhood/sisterhood, this article will discuss how each of us as women and young ladies can leave our own legacies.  Legacies within our family, within our educational system, within our places of worship and lastly; within our communities as a whole.

What we say and how we conduct ourselves on a daily basis is what will determine the legacy we leave.  Make no mistake about it, each and every one of us will leave a legacy; positive or negative.  Which one will you leave?  Many of us are recipients of positive women who have left positive legacies that have allowed it to be a bit easier for us and as we continue to make progress, it is on the shoulders of those that we stand upon?  Think, how different life would be if not for Rosa Parks, Dorothy Dandridge and Mother Teresa?  These are the shoulders of which the late Dr. Maya Angelou and Oscar winning Halle Berry stands upon.  Who will we lend our shoulders too?

You may say, “Easier said than done” and that may be true.  Here are 4 steps in which you can leave your legacy, your mark on those who come through and into your life:

  1. You do not have to be an adult in order to leave a legacy.  Take a leadership role at school.  Create something that is lacking in your school.  For example, if your school paper lacks important issues…write them.  If your school is lacking cultural clubs/activities…create them.

  2. Take a lead in bringing your family members together.  Consistently host dinners at your home and invite your family members and encourage unity amongst your relatives and the importance of doing so.

  3. At the workplace be that “IT” woman.  The one your co workers go to when looking for answers.  Become an expert in your field and be relentless in your pursuit to move up.  Then become a mentor to the younger women in your company.

  4. Volunteer and take an active leading role in your community.  BE VISIBLE! 

In conclusion, I would like to leave you with a quote:

“There are certain things that are fundamental to human fulfillment.  The essence of these needs is captured in the phrase “to live, to love, to learn, to leave a legacy”.  The need to live is our physical need for such things as food, clothing and shelter.  The need to love is our social need to relate to other people, to belong, to love and to be loved.  The need to learn is our mental need to develop and to grow.  The need to leave a legacy is our spiritual need to have a sense of meaning, purpose, personal congruence, and contribution”. – Stephen R. Covey

The choice is yours.  Be undeterred in living a life of purpose and leaving a legacy for others to follow.  Honor your history of womenhood/sisterhood by honoring our future.

    When someone writes an paragraph he/she maintains the image of a
    user in his/her brain that how a user can be aware of it.

    Thus that’s why this paragraph is perfect. Thanks!
