Ever go to a gallery or art festival and suddenly happen upon a breathtaking painting of a sunrise or sunset? It takes your breath away because the artist has stopped time.
The artist who does such a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other work of art creates a legacy. Thousands or even millions will come after and be able to experience that particular moment in time.
But you don't have to paint, sing, or dance to create such a legacy…
You get the chance every day. Personally I haven’t shown much aptitude for painting or drawing. I’m a writer and my canvass is the keyboard. You may be a schoolteacher, guidance counselor, church leader, scoutmaster, mayor, rabbi, coach, or mentor. You might be a yoga teacher, tutor, keynote speaker, or blogger.
Or you could simply be a best friend, big brother or sister, loving spouse, or the person who gives a dollar to a homeless person on the street. But one thing I know for certain…
Every day you have the opportunity to paint a sunrise.
