Trusting for Today and Tomorrow
One of the hardest things that we have to do in life is to make choices. I should rephrase that statement…making choices in life is easy; making the right choices, for the right reasons, at the right times can be difficult. And whilst we might like to believe that will all the technology that we have access to today, it might be easier; the reality is that the technology that encompasses our lives today may be making our ability to make choices – the right choices for the right reasons at the right times – actually a bit trickier.
One of the reasons that making choices is that our access to information has increased tremendously with all our technology, and that is both a good news thing and a bad news thing. It is good news because it takes us less time to find out what is going on in the world, but bad news because now we have to make decisions more quickly. Equally, because we have more access to information, we also have to be more careful about trusting the information we may read. The key word here is “trusting.” According to the dictionary, “trusting” is defined as, a “Firm belief in the reliability, truth, or ability of someone or something.”
Making the right choices, for the right reasons, at the right times in today’s face-paced, often crazy appearing, world can be easier if you have someone that you can trust to help you figure out what is the best for you to do, both for the short-term (perhaps literally tomorrow) and the long-term (perhaps several years in the future).
Almost eight years ago, I received a message that said my Uncle (actually my favourite Uncle) was very ill and the person from the home said that they didn’t expect him to be here much longer. I immediately flew to Melbourne where my Aunt and Uncle had a home to be with him. Whilst there, I met a man who said that he had been my Uncle’s attorney and said that he would help me with any arrangements I would need to make at my Uncle’s passing. I had never even met this man prior to my arrival in Melbourne from Spain but after asking him some pretty important questions, I realised that my Uncle had made the right choice, for the right reasons, at the right time for someone that he could trust and advise him on the choices that my Uncle needed to make. After my Uncle passed, I stayed in contact with that attorney and am pleased to think of him as someone I would recommend as a trusted counsel for anyone who needs to make the right choices, for the right reasons, at the right times. If you are wondering who you could talk to in order to make your own right choices, for the right reasons, at the right times, I would recommend you talk David Slonim, Esq, or any of the team at Slonim Law in Melbourne. Making choices is only easier if you have someone who you can trust to help you do what is best for you, both for today, and tomorrow.
