In "Lessons from Lola: Leaving a Legacy", Ana looks at lessons from a passing of a relative's friend, and explores how she can leave her legacy. Read more in her latest post.
I have no idea who and how I will be in 30 years, but I've found myself contemplating what I will leave behind, what I will build, what my family and community will not only remember but feel. When it came down to distilling the essence of her life, I arrived at four things that I learned from Lola on how to live a great life and build a great community:
Be BOLD: Her recent emails were in font size 36 and in bold to make sure you didn’t miss one word. And we never did.
Be LOUD: Never lose your voice despite going deaf or thinking no one is listening to you.
Be BIG: Despite her physical size (4' 10"), her stature of greatness was unquestionable.
Be LOVE: Fill your heart, and the hearts of others, with love.
Where are you being BOLD, LOUD, BIG and LOVE? How is your community a kaleidoscope of love? Write in the comments below or tweet us @Leadershippin.
