the tracks we leave

IMG_1839We will be known forever by the tracks we leave.
Dakota proverb

Making conscious tracks — the future’s path is created by actions we take today. These actions become guides – instructions for those who step onto the trail and forage ahead. These tracks gift our children with direction and instill hope. The steps we take today can leave future generations an inheritance more valuable than anything material.

So what will our tracks tell about the life we have lived? What will our footprints reflect about our priorities and concerns? Each day I read of actions taken that show little interest in enriching lives and communities. Many of today’s footsteps are taken to better one’s self and only widen the gape between those who have and those who are in need. 

May each of us set our goal to take careful steps toward a better world, moving ahead as role models to inspire people who feel hopeless. May the path we create lead to peace and well-being for all.
