The process of writing any type of will is usually thought of as a very serious and time consuming process that is never fun. However, when writing a spritiual ethical will there are sevearl ways you can make it enjoyable. Below are a few creative projects that you can have fun with as you write your ethical will.
The first project is to tell the story of your life in under five minutes. For this activity you will need either a video or audio recorder, five minute, a notepad, a writing instrument and any photos or keepsakes you want to include in your presentation. The preparation for this activity will be to create an outline of the most important parts of your life. This will help you tell your story. When you are ready you can record your lifestory on tape or digital media.
The next project is to write a chapter for your personal memoirs. The title of this chapter is, “The First Life Lesson I Learned.” For this chapter you will talk about an event in your life that really taught you about what is important in life or what path was right for your to take. This event needs to be early in your life.
You can continue on your path to writing your memories with a second chapter for your book entitled, “Mistakes I’ve Made.” This is going to be a hard chapter to write as it requires you to review the mistakes that you made. However, it does provide you with the chance to admit mistakes that you have made and to examine how those mistakes impacted your life. It also gives you the chance to repair relationships and to fix problems that those mistakes have caused.
Having fun with your spiritual ethical will may sound unusual, but it is an approach that can make the process of preparing for your passing easier to handle.
