What Is Legendary Living?

I firmly believe we allow life to get in the way of living sometimes.

If you follow me on Instagram (and you should!) you will begin to notice daily videos popping up with the hashtag #LegendaryLiving. I have checked, and this isn’t a new hashtag by any means, but it is new and important to me, so I think I should give a little explaination about this new relationship I am entering into.

For me, I sometimes find it’s easy to put life on hold. We press pause with our dreams regulary, for any number of reasons. You haev a huge deadline at work and you can’t keep working on your short story at home. You have a major life-changing event occur, and your crochet hobby falls by the side of your night stand. You’re tired from life, so anything that takes extra energy gets pushed to the back of your mind and your plate. Leaving a long list of to-do’s in life that often become don’ts.

I am sure you can relate to this on some level, in some way! We all have goals or aspirations that have yet to be fully realized.

And sometimes, that’s okay. Sometimes, we aren’t meant to scale mountains or pen novellas. But what is often the case, I firmly believe, is that we allow life to get in the way of living, and some days, weeks, months, years get wasted because of that simple truth.

So, legendary living is simply living on purpose. Choosing every single day that no matter what, you will live on purpose, for a purpose, thus leaving behind your own legacy. In other words, choosing to create your own legendary tale, one page at a time, instead of letting life write its own version for you.

I believe every person was created by God, the God of the Bible. I believe that very God wrote purpose on the hearts of all of His creation, and that purpose burns through us all in our thoughts, our skllls, and our deepest desires. I know for sure many voids exist on this planet because of people who haven’t and aren’t living on purpose, people who are casually choosing the opposite of Legendary Living, myself included.

I realize there is only one me on this planet: no other Danni Tabor who specifically possesses my talents, passions, gifts, or character.  The same is true for you!

Legendary Living is a choice, and I am going to start choosing it daily. I want to have a say in how my story plays out, and that starts with my choices each day.

All my love,

Danni

I am a 32 year old teacher in Georgia, originally from Ohio (Go Buckeyes!). I am also a singer and I recently taught myself how to play guitar. For fun, I enjoy reading and lots of Netflix binges, which is my American right! I have also been known to cycle, run half marathons, and do just about whatever I set my mind to. A charming shepherd-mix dog named Kingsley lives with me and keeps me laughing at his antics at every turn. I am learning how to love the life I live with each passing day. Sometimes it's easy...other times, I write about it.
