A lot of Missing Pieces Plan stories I share may not happen to all of us.
But, one thing’s for sure, death will happen to all of us. As one recent article I shared stated, it’s life’s “one certainty.” (Read article here.)
Bummer, I know.
I know you’re likely tired of me bombarding you with this fun fact. But, here’s the message I want to share with the Missing Pieces Plan… accepting this reality will be a gift.
Yes, a gift.
A gift to you and a gift to your loved ones.
When we can accept this reality, and realize that WE get to determine how we want to live out the rest of our days and beyond, I believe something clicks.
Something clicks in our desire to start dreaming, start planning and take hold of what can be ours to create.
I am hopeful that you’ll be excited (yes, I said “excited”) to do this ‘work’.
Without a doubt, you can leave how you die, what happens to your belongings and how you leave your loved ones up to ‘fate.’
But, why? Why do that?
Why, when YOU can be in charge. You can direct the ship.
As I have been doing more speaking engagements for the Missing Pieces Plan, I am encouraging listeners to think, dream, and create the life they want BEFORE even picking up my book.
Of course, I want you to buy my book ;-), but I believe it’s in the thinking, the daydreaming, the crafting of your wishes that you can then make your wishes “come to life.”
Thinking is not something we allow ourselves to do – certainly not in the context of ‘dreaming’ how we want our life to go.
But, I am giving you permission. And, a very good reason to do it. By planning how you want your days to go, how you want to leave (because we all will), you can begin to live your FULLEST life now.
- Grab a journal.
- Envision you’re not here.
- And write the answers to these questions (as a start) …
- What would you want that to look like? Everything from belongings passed down to how you want your family financially positioned.
- What’s important for the remainder of your life?
- How do you want to spend your last days if you fall ill?
- How do you want to spend your last days healthy?
By planning before a crisis hits, we will be able to live out the remainder of our days on our terms.
“I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in a magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. “The proper function of man is to live, not exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall USE my time.”
~ Jack London
