A Great Day

It was below freezing here this morning and sunny. I got up early to attend a 7:45 a.m. meeting. At the recommendation of new contact, Mary, I attended a C3G Career Networking group meeting. It was very good and I made some wonderful new contacts. The group also has subgroups which meet at different locations on other days of the week. There are two which I will attend.

Early in the meeting each new attendee was asked to go on stage and give their name, say what they are experienced in, what they are looking for, and any other information which may be beneficial. Later I was approaches by two different people suggesting there may be some freelance opportunities for me.

This evening I received notice of a new posting at a website I subscribe to “The Art of Non-Conformity” and the posting series The Agenda topic was about building a legacy.

After reading the post I was moved to comment:
• Thanks for this wonderful series, especially Build a Legacy.
My thoughts about leaving a legacy began in the mid to late 80′s when I read the book “The Neverending Story” by Michael Ende. He had written it originally for children. However, it became so popular with adults that it was published in several languages and reprinted many times. Personally I read it five times within three months and each time I noticed something I had not noticed before. I loved the positive underlying messages. I thought what an amazing legacy to leave behind. I began to realize that I had not done anything special in my life to leave as a legacy. However, I never thought I would be a writer…until one day when I woke with a story in my head. It was so powerful that I had to sit down and write, which I did all that day. Some years later it was published and the response from readers has blown me away. I am grateful for the positive affect it has had on so many.
