Bequeath: (v) to pass something on or leave something to someone else.
In our present day and age, when individuality is considered to be the epitome of human expression, I must step in for this brief moment and tell you that I fully intend to bequeath to my children and grandchildren some essential principles which I have found to be necessary to overcome mediocrity, and embrace a second-mile lifestyle, without acting exhausted with the ordeal.
1. Find what’s good and stick with it–even if some people think you’re an asshole for not joining the malaise.
2. Spend more time listening–looking, sharing and believing in good than you do eyeballing and absorbing darkness.
3. Be silly. A serious-minded person is not more prepared for disaster. He or she just frowns more during the process.
4. Don’t give up–but always give yourself a clear chance to evolve when greater knowledge exposes your lacking.
I bequeath these to my children, grandchildren and anyone else who’s willing to listen.
Don’t get me wrong–I’m not planning on leaving soon.
Just wanted to let you know it’s available.
