We talk about our place in the world and what our lasting legacy will be.
Everyone of us who has ever lived on this planet leaves a legacy. Our very existence on this planet has an impact, sometimes good, sometimes bad, whether we intend it to or not.
As we sit there sipping our wine, we often ask each other the question, “how do you want to be remembered?” The more important follow up question we ask is, “how do you want to be remembered by our children?”
First and foremost, I want my children to remember that I loved them, deeply and unconditionally. Through thick and thin; in good times and bad and in both happiness and sadness.
Next, I want them to remember that although I may have been their toughest critic, I was also their most vehement supporter. That even though I might not always have agreed with their views, I could be counted on to respect their beliefs and always encourage them to follow their dreams, their passions.
Lastly, I want them to remember that I always tried to do my best, no matter what hat I was wearing — be it mom, wife, friend or work professional. That I gave my all to leave this place just a bit better and nicer than I entered it, by showing kindness and readily reaching out a hand to help others….
So what are you leaving behind as you travel through life… Great memories? Wonderful experiences? Valuable pieces of advice?
H2O+ , the exclusive worldwide provider for in-room amenities of the Disney Resorts, has teamed up with Walt Disney Records to celebrate The Legacy Collection, which commemorates the rich heritage of classic Disney films and soundtracks that we all know and love, and have created the #ShareYourLegacy campaign, because everyone has their own story and all stories lead to a legacy.
You can visit their website at www.h2oplus.com/legacy and upload your own #ShareYourLegacy video. While there, you can enter the #ShareYourLegacy sweepstakes for a chance to be whisked away to New York City for a once in a lifetime Broadway experience to add to your legacy!
One Grand Prize winner will be chosen and includes round-trip airfare for two to NY, a two-night hotel stay and two tickets to the smash Broadway hit and Disney classic The Lion King along with an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour. The winner will also receive an H2O+ Skin & Bodycare Beauty Basket (a $500 retail value!) full of bestsellers for healthy, glowing skin for your big night on the town.
The #ShareYourLegacy sweepstakes is open to US residents only, and you must be 18 years of age or older to enter. Participants do not have to post a #ShareYourLegacy video in order to enter the sweepstakes.
To get you in the mood for creating a #ShareYourLegacy video and overall good vibes at winning the sweeps, you should check out Walt Disney Record’s The Legacy Collection of “The Lion King,” which is a 2-disc set. I love “The Lion King”, it’s all about family, friends, love/loss and facing your fears in order to come out stronger, all of which are great legacies to leave…..
So now it’s your turn to share. What’s the one legacy you want to leave with your kids/family?
