I know this would normally be a trigger for family drama and concern, but for me it’s actually a very nice compliment.
My sister came up to Sydney last weekend for my birthday (eek, I’m 39 now) and told me she’s written me out of her will. In her words:
‘You’re doing such a good job of getting your financial life and future on track that I no longer worry about you or your future any more.’
Considering she’s one of my greatest financial role models, this meant a great deal to me, but it has made me think about having a will of my own, as I never thought about it much.
Well apart from the time my mother gave me a ‘Will Kit For Singles’ one year for my birthday, which has been a running family joke ever since. I thought it meant she too thought I was destined to die alone. :-)
