For many of us, the thought of preparing a Will is very uncomfortable; it makes us nervous. We feel that doing a Will may “invite” death. To be sure, this is superstitious thinking, but, nevertheless, such thinking stops many of us from doing what’s in our best interest.
Preparing your Will is not bad luck. Quite the contrary. It’s the smart thing to do. Getting your affairs in order helps ensure that your wishes will be respected when the time comes. It doesn’t make that time come any sooner. In fact, doing your Will is often accompanied by a sense of relief – one more thing off of your “to do” list.
Planning ahead is a good thing. We do it all the time – opening college funds to save for our children’s futures, opening 401Ks to save for our retirement, getting annual physicals to help ensure we stay healthy and “nip things in the bud.” Doing a Will is part of planning; it’s part of taking care of ourselves and arranging for what’s important to us.
