I started writing an ethical will for my three sons a couple of years ago.
I’ve never finished it because I have so much I want to tell them. I just don’t know where to stop.
An ethical will is a way to tell your loved ones your values, blessings, life lessons, hopes, and dreams for the future. It’s simple really.
It can actually be about anything you feel is valuable information to pass down to the next generation, and you do not have to wait to die to pass it on to your family members.
You can give them a copy at any time for any reason, or no reason at all.
It is not a legal document of any kind. It’s just thoughts and things you want to share.
Don’t we all have times when we wish we had one more moment in time to tell that special person something that we value deeply?
Here is just a tiny sampling of things I have written in my ethical will of words of wisdom I want to pass on to my children.
Life is hard no matter what path you go down.
The people beside you are hurting in some way just like you.
That’s just reality.
EVERYTHING depends on how YOU react to it.
You can try to find positive instead of looking for the negative.
It’s harder work, but it pays off with dividends: Joy.
I guarantee you’ll have joy if you learn to ride the wave instead of drowning in the wave.
Much Love and Many Prayers,
