Thinking about the future, especially a future in which you or a loved one is no longer present, is not a pleasant exercise for most people. We all like to think that the end of our lives is a long way off, that we will have plenty of time to take care of all those details later in life. But the reality is that none of us know when something unexpected will drastically alter those plans, and that is a scary thought. Here are scarier questions: what will happen to my family after I die? How will their needs be met? Will they succeed without me—or both of their parents—being around?
Without a plan in place and ready, the future of your family is left up to chance. And whether you obsessively focus on what you are lacking and don’t do anything about it or try to ignore those nagging feelings that you should act to protect your family’s future, the truth is that you will feel greater peace knowing that you have done something, however small, to guarantee your family’s future.
