Tonight is Christmas Eve, and it is the perfect time to create a list of things that you are thankful for. This list can include professional accomplishments, family members, health, your children and even material things. After writing your “Thankful For” list, sign and date it. Then add this to your spiritual and ethical will.
Creating a series of annual lists and journal entries can be a great way to flesh out your ethical will. It can also be a great way for your beneficiaries, whether they are your children, grandchildren, or close friends, to learn more about who you are, and what you were thankful for during your life. These entries are also a great way to let the people that are important in your life to know how much you appreciate the role they played in your life.
”Thankful For” lists and annual journal entries can be written by hand on loose leaf paper, they can be handwritten in a bound journal, or they can be entered into your digital spiritual and ethical will directly. No matter what method you select, it is important to be consistent with your entries so that a natural progression of life time insights can be constructed.
Writing a final spiritual ethical will is not something that you want to do in a single sitting. Instead, you will want to develop the basic format and content of your official ethical will and then add insights, information and content as the years progress. However, if you are at a point where you think that you may not have much time left on this Earth then construct your spiritual ethical will and testament with thoughts, feelings and insights that come straight from your heart.
