PAR­ENTS...

body, from one just start­ing to build a ca­reer, a life of riches if you will, to one al­ready wal­low­ing in moolah.

So, if you are wealthy or not, if you are like neo­phyte Kiefer Ravena or big shot June Mar Fa­jardo, I be­lieve the fol­low­ing could be as rel­e­vant and as help­ful as um­brel­las on a rainy day.

Said point­ers be­low might be of tremen­dous help for cager Kiefer should he be­come rich go­ing by his star po­ten­tial, and the now-wealthy bas­ke­teer June Mar as well.

So here: Be­cause none of us will live for­ever, and we can’t take along any­thing when we go, here’s some coun­sel that can last a life­time 10 times over.

1. Stop be­ing too thrifty. Spend the money that should be spent, en­joy what should be en­joyed, do­nate what you are able to do­nate, but don’t leave all to your chil­dren or grand­chil­dren, for you don’t want them to be­come par­a­sites who are wait­ing for the day you will die.

2. Don’t worry too much about your chil­dren, for chil­dren will have their own des­tiny and should find their own way. Don’t be your chil­dren’s slave. Care for them, love them, give them gifts but also en­joy your money while you can. Life should have more to it than work­ing from the cra­dle to the grave.

3. Don’t ex­pect too much from your chil­dren. Car­ing chil­dren, though car­ing, would be too busy with their jobs and com­mit­ments to ren­der much help.

Un­car­ing chil­dren may fight over your assets even when you are still alive, and wish for your early demise so they can in­herit your prop­er­ties and wealth.

Some, if not most, chil­dren take for granted that they are right­ful heirs to your wealth.

But, alas, you have no claims to their money. The above are not ac­tu­ally mine, but were vibered to me by a dear friend of mine.

Em­brace the mes­sage more than the mes­sen­ger. Heed them or not, your choice. Life is choices, any­ways. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
