We know that sharing what we love with the people we love is one of the greatest joys in life. We also know that when things get hard, figuring out how to talk about what matters most in life, gets even harder.
In our death-denying culture, few of us contemplate the certainty of our death or that it could happen at any time. Yet, contemplating death is vital to putting us in touch with our best and truest self and encourages us to be more clear about our priorities.
One of the greatest legacies we can leave our loved ones is to ensure they have the information they need when the time comes; allowing them to focus on grieving and healing rather than being consumed by stressful searches for information or even worse, family conflicts around decisions.
