Your Legacy Journey
Becoming a grandmother has changed me in more ways than I ever could imagine. I guess one never thinks growing up that they too will be old like a grandma. One one level, there is that bonding, deep deep love… the love to the moon and back kind of love. But there is something else, perhaps more visceral, that feeling of continuity, of remembrance and envisioning. I have experienced a deep sense of hope for the future.
Do you remember what your grandparents taught you? Your parents… lol, I know, we all have so many stories of exceptional and awful parents! But maybe between the generations, we, the baby boomer generation, took a step out of our generational dysfunctions for the better. Maybe not. But the one constant through all the generations, I imagine, is that we want, we long for, a better future for our child and our children’s children.

My passion has always been healing the past so we can enjoy what we have, right now. And, I will continue to do that.
But what I must tell you is that I had a fear, and this fear led me to start thinking more about legacy.
You might have had the same fear. The fear is regret. I do NOT want to be on my deathbed with pain in my heart that I did not do something, say something, see something or become the person I was meant to be.
However, I want to take the next step with you and help you answer some of life’s most pressing questions when we get to a certain age, the age my mother-in-law calls Life’s third trimester.
- What are the conversations you need to have so you find peace before you leave this earth plane?
- How would you best like to be remembered?
- If you had that magic wand and could make the world, your family, or community a better place, what would that be?
- What lessons have you learned that you would like to pass on?
- Do you have the courage to change, try something new, and step outside your comfort zone?
- Is there something you always wanted to do that you know you will regret not doing when you are on your death bed?
- Do you have a good sense of what you came to earth to do? In other words, your mission?
I have been greatly inspired by my mother-in-law, Sandy, who in her 70’s started a group called The Third Trimester. On a regular basis, she gathered people 60 and older together to discuss vital issues, and to stay engaged with friends and the community. As I coach people in this age group, I realize how vital it is to help people not be isolated, and to use their own wisdom in a creative way. I hope to bring this gift to you through various groups, workshops, retreats and even through one-on-one coaching.

If you are not a member of Lori’s community, sign up below so you can get a gift of an audio class I taught on forgiveness and gratitude. I know when we feel isolated, we have a tendency to focus on regrets or disappointments in the past. By focusing our energy on forgiveness and gratitude, we can focus our intention on enjoying the present! That’s what I want for you.
