Hello fellow human- today I want to chat about what it means to be legendary. The thought crossed my mind as I watched a man from Czech climb a giant mountain ledge with no ropes. I thought to myself “that is amazing- I wish I could accomplish something like that someday.” Now I am going to stop you right there- don’t worry. I am not going to do any “rope-less” rock climbing anytime soon. It just brought to my attention to the fact that I get inspired by these huge, crazy, and honestly unreachable accomplishments that other people reach on the internet daily.
Now- I am not saying that I couldn’t possibly accomplish climbing a mountain with no ropes. I am sure if I put everything, my time, my energy, and my life into this goal I could do great things- but I have no interest in that. You are probably wondering why I am rambling about this- but all these wandering thoughts led me to ask myself the question- what is legendary?
Legendary is the behind-the-scenes. It’s the hard work that leads to the 7-second videos you see online, it’s waking up and breathing when you felt like dying yesterday. To be legendary is to completely and utterly normal. It’s existing softly in this harsh world, it’s speaking up when we are being hushed, and it’s showing up for ourselves when we need it most.
I just wanted to make a post honoring the legendary in the ordinary in myself and in you. Today I hit a 15-day streak of taking Spanish lessons and went to the gym 4 days in a row even though I was tired and anxious about looking silly. I spent time with my son- teaching him his ABC’s and chatting with him while he tried new foods.
So I ask you- what ordinary things did you do today that makes you legendary. Life is not about being the best in the world- it’s about being the best YOU. That is all of my thoughts on that topic today. I hope you have a wonderful night.
