If you are leaving good foot prints, you really don't have to say much!! Let the walking to the talking! If words need to be said you might tell them some of the things that help you place your steps to begin with, and throw in there that you might trip and fall sometimes but at least you have your previous footprints to continue in. God bless!
Tell them to only follow my path in life along certain journeys. If you see the path ahead getting steep & rocky, almost unsurpassable at times, head cross country to where it's greener. You don't need to repeat my mistakes. You may bypass the errors in judgement I have made by these simple detours. It may not be the journey you expected but when you get to where I am now I will be pleased for you as it will make your trip worthwhile & you may revel in the beauty of self contentment & just enjoy being you.
