MAGS LEGACY MAPS WORKSHOP

LEGACY MAPS is a Mags Magazine Signature Workshop.

LEGACY MAPS creates a space for an interactive, practical and soul filling workshop to support individuals to create their personal legacies. This workshop goes beyond vision boarding to provide a bird eye’s view of our lives on our personal LEGACY MAP. It takes into consideration all the key elements of a person’s life – purpose, career, family, health and well being, finance, community and most importantly, brings to the forefront, the question: “What is the legacy which I want to leave behind?

Length of time: 8 hours (over 2 days)

July 24th and July 8th from 3p.m. – 7p.m.

Introduction:

Most of us know what we want to do but we get stuck for all kinds of reasons and need a little bit of support to move forward in our life missions. There are only 24 hours in a day and it seems almost impossible to fit everything in. However, when we are not focused or we don’t have a plan, we cannot measure our progress! In some cases, we settle for much less that what we are capable of achieving.

Workshop participants will be able to:

a) Engage in a multi-sensory experience to start the process of identifying with their life purpose or to re-confirm that they are on the right track in living their life purpose

b) Write a first draft of their Legacy Statement

c) Create a timeline which marks major turning points in their lives

d) Reflect on turning points to identify losses, gains, lesson, rewards along with emotional ties which may be nurturing or stifling progress

e) Develop a Legacy Map to tell a new storyline which invites passion and a commitment to take actions to create their personal legacy

f) Reflect on their legacy roots, make decisions and take action about how to honour those legacy roots

Would You Give a Stranger Your Car?

I am grateful to meet earth angels like Ben and his family. It is admirable that a total stranger would hand over his car keys and trust that everything would be fine.

On the evening of May 29th, my daughter Dawn and I went to Canadian Tire to buy a bike for her. After a long and painful wait, we finally got the bike. However, when we got to our car, the bike would not fit in the car.

The gentleman in this picture was sitting in his car, watching us struggle with the bike. He came over and offered to help us but the bike was simply too long to fit into our car. Dawn suggested that she could ride home but it was too far and she was not familiar with that part of the city. We both felt frustrated. The man’s wife and sister-in-law came to help but to no avail!

Mentally, I started running a list of names of friends who had large vehicles but unfortunately not a single person I could think of had a large enough vehicle to accomodate the bike.

“How far do you live?” the gentleman asked.

“About 15 minutes away,” I responded.

“Here is the key to my car. My car can take the bike. Why don’t you use my car to take the bike home and come back here to meet me. My wife and sister-in-law will be shopping and I am sure that they will be in the shop for a long time!”

I was not sure what to make of the offer. Dawn and I looked at each other in confusion. Was this man for real? Was he really giving us the keys to his car when we had no idea who he was? What about Covid-19? So many thoughts run through my mind as I stared at the bike, my daughter, the man and his car. Realistically, what were our options? The bike would certainly have to get home… in someone else’s vehicle! After some persuasion, I nervously accepted the offer, took the keys and we transferred the bike to his car.

Dawn and I drove to our house nervously. I can’t remember when last I drove someone else’s car. You have no idea how much cortisol flowed through my body to the point where my mouth was completely dry! I prayed fervidly to God to help us get home safely. We were so grateful when we arrived home!

On the way back to drop off the car, Dawn stopped at the grocery story to pick up a hanging basket for the family. We got back to Canadian Tire safely. I have never been more relieved. She gave them the flowers which we had to insist that they had to accept. We chatted for a while and at the end, the man whose name is Ben, said: “We do this kind of thing all the time, helping others. Just pay it forward.”

I am grateful to meet earth angels like Ben and his family. It is admirable that a total stranger would hand over his car keys and trust that everything would be fine.

Would you give a stranger your car in a situation like this?

With all what is going on in the world right now, we need more people like Ben and his family. May the Creator of this amazing universe continue to bless them.
