Using symbolism to create a legacy

Other ways to you can leave an impression of who you are

'Personal symbols are things people associate with you, whether it’s colour, place, flower a perfume you wear or music you listen too.'
(Living on, 2000 E, Margo, J, Margo p. 70).

 

You may like to consider living on through symbolism by providing a list including your favourite:

Place

This could be your favourite tree, place to go, a place that brings you peace or comfort. It could be a place you go often such as a walking track, a seat in a park or a look out you enjoy. Providing a place that you enjoy will provide offspring the opportunity to visit this place in future if they wish.

Song

Choose a song that has meaning to you. This song might be your favourite or it may be a tune that you listen to when/if you think about your offspring.

Scent

List down your favourite scents that you wear or that you enjoy.

Object

This could be your favourite animal, tree, insect, plant life, objects like a feather, butterfly, bee etc. Often people who pass away tell their loved ones that they are with them when they see (insert object, example a feather). This can give people comfort when they see this item (feather on the footpath for example).

Colour

Pick your favourite colour or a colour that you believe represents you as a whole.
