I always thought that the ideal time for writing a will is when a person feels that the end is near - I have no clue where I got that idea from. Dr. Baines gave me a totally new perspective. In an ethical will, people share a part of themselves and this part helps them identify and act upon their beliefs. It also helps the reader of this will to understand where they are coming from and what they value most. This could be an ideal tool between couples at anytime of their relationship, between parents and their children regardless of their age, between grand parents and their grand children, or between friends and business associates.
There is no better time to share with you my ethical will than at the end of a fruitful and very productive year:
• I have learnt the joy of tolerance and that he who judges shall be judged. People are different and I am different too.
• I believe in mercy and forgiveness. I am still working on second chances though. We all make mistakes.
• Fame does not last but the people you have helped will remember your forever.
• Beauty does not last either but the people who see your heart will always see your beauty.
