Our lives are shaped in so many ways, impacted by many things: special people, special moments, incredible accomplishments and unique experiences. School years, graduations – your first job… falling in love, getting married – having kids….
Your life story is full of intricacies and complexities, it’s what makes you who you are! And when it is all said and done, we all want to feel like we mattered, to have made some sort of impact on the world, and if we have been lucky, leave a legacy to those we love.
So, how would you like to be remembered for the person you really are? Take the time, and sit down with your loved ones and Tell Your Story. Talk about your life, your memories, your experiences and your legacy. Take out the photo albums and the home made videos, tell the stories and share them…. So your children and grandchildren and beyond can experience what you were like… for generations.
Take some time to think about how you’d like to be remembered and celebrated. Then share those thoughts with the ones you love.
Many think of funerals and they think of tears and sadness… but really – it’s a chance to remember and celebrate your life. So think of it as a celebration…
It’s an important discussion that can happen anytime, and anywhere. Over lunch, driving in the car – out walking the dog. People can have a difficult time recalling information during times of emotional stress…. So Telling Your Story sooner rather than later can be very beneficial. It’s worth thinking about…. So, how would you like to be remembered?
