What’s YOUR Plan?

Too often, we go through our day to day lives on auto-pilot. Get up, go to work, do your job, come home, eat something, see your family, watch some television and go to bed. Start over again the next day until the weekend.

This may not be the full scope of your days, but for many of us, there is a repetitive nature to our lives that makes us feel secure. It may not be exciting, but there’s comfort in being able to take certain aspects of our lives for granted. And when things are going well, or at least comfortably, we don’t think things will change. Until they do.

If you’re the parent of younger children, you may be focused on how they’re doing in school. Maybe you’ve given some thought to college or professional training for your kids. Perhaps you’re planning a visit with your folks soon, or at least a phone call to see how they’re feeling, let them know you care.

Maybe you’re a little older. Retired or approaching retirement? Trying to get the hang of Facebook so you can see pictures of your grandkids? Have you thought about the future? Do you have a will? Do your children know what your wishes might be for your future?

It’s easy to go through our lives without facing these difficult ideas. No one wants to think “What if?” But the worst thing you can do is to neglect answering these important questions. In life, change is inevitable. And if we look at how we’d like to approach those changes before they occur, the transition will be much smoother for everyone in your family. And isn’t that better than leaving it all to chance?

If you haven’t had that all important “family talk” yet, I urge you to put it on your schedule. If you want a list of topics to consider, here’s a link to the 8 Things You Must Discuss.

And if you need help finding professionals to help you work out the details, visit Light of Gray.
