Death, A Scary But Important Conversation.

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about what would happen if I were to pass away today… Would my family know how to contact my job? Could they log into my financial accounts? Would they know what belongs to my son?

When I was younger, death was something I never thought about. To me, I’m going to practically live forever, but then again that’s something that isn’t up to me. I can do my best to make sure I stay healthy, strong, and to avoid danger, but ultimately it’s up to the universe when we come and when we go. Witnessing people die at a young age has reminded me of this.

So many people are so focused on living, as they should, but they forget to prepare themselves and their families for tragedies. That tragedy doesn’t have to always include death. Some of us can become ill or get into an accident that leaves us immobilized. Do we even have a plan for those instances? I know I don’t and that needs to change.

The first step is accepting that death is inevitable. It could happen today, tomorrow or 40 years from now. No matter the case you have to accept that is going to happen and you need to prepare for it.

Here are some steps you should take when getting yourself and family prepared for your passing :

Also communication is a big key in preparing for your death. I know it’s scary, but it’s important.
