What’s your legacy?
Everyone wants to leave a legacy. For some, that legacy is money or property. For others, it is fame and fortune. Others seek merely to leave a legacy of love and happiness, rather than pain and suffering. Whichever you choose, it’s time to have the difficult conversations.
What will your legacy be? How do you want others to remember you? What stories do you want people to tell when you’re gone? What will your obituary say? How did you live your dash? Few of us have taken the time to ponder these questions, much less the tougher ones.
The reality is that your life leaves a legacy, intended or not. What you need to ask yourself is: “Is this the legacy I want to leave?” I hope you like the answer because you are living your legacy in real-time. Your legacy is happening right now.
Whether you are starting a family or ending a relationship or anything in between, a nontraditional and collaborative approach to legal matters allows you to keep your private life private with your dignity and compassion intact. Live the legacy you intend. Let’s have that conversation now.
