Ease and confidence are often gained through preparation for the event ahead. By completing of our end-of-life documents, contemplating and envisioning our own “good death,” and making decisions about our after-death care, we lessen fear about our final days and also offer a gift to our loved ones. We leave them with the information they will need to fulfill our wishes, thus relieving them of the tension and stress that may arise when trying to guess what we would have wanted.
The problem is we think we have time. ~ Jack Kornfield
