“The candle died out long before, the legend ever will” Elton John sang at Princess Diana’s funeral.
As we mark the 20 year anniversary of Princess Diana’s death – all the stories and reflections in the news lately , has gotten me thinking about what kind of a legacy she left – but also – what kind of legacy would you like to leave?
When you see Princess Diana’s contribution to the world – from her parenting of the young princes to her charity work and belief in the people, it’s amazing to comprehend that one person could contribute so so so much change to so many.
Back in 1997, it was the beginning of an era – an era of 24hr tv, of celebrity influence, and Princess Diana bared her soul and showed how vulnerable she was. Even in her death she brought people together and changed the face of the monarchy too.
She shone a charismatic light on what it was to be real, to hurt and to achieve change.
Princess Diana showed us how we can create something of our lives and influence change.
In a tumultuous time for her, she took what she was good at, combined that with what she loved and was able to forge a life that was fulfilling.
Have you ever wondered what your legacy is going to be?
Change does not have to be monumental, or affect the world, it simply could be a small event in the lives of those who matter to you.
Don’t wait until it’s too late to be happy, to do what you love – start now because you never know when your time may run out. Your legacy can be that you are loved and contribute to your world in such a way that no matter how much time passes, that love can still be felt.
