It means you’ve contributed something to the world that will carry on through future generations. Many people sum it up as simply meaning, “I mattered.” Now, you might think that this only refers to the last stage of your life, but your legacy can  actually be built every day. That’s why you have to make each day count; you never know who you’l ..read more
