When it comes to a certain time in your life, you might start to think about what exactly will happen when it ends. No one likes to think about death but it is something which unfortunately is a part of life which we have to face. You might think of your death when you become a parent, when you get married, or when you grow a little older: but whenever you do, here are some things to think about.
Spend time with those you love
The most important thing in anyone’s life is the people we know and love, and the people we get to spend time with every day. We all have people that we love and adore, and it is when you start to think about death that you want to be by their side. Spend as much time as you can with your family and the people you love because you never know when the end will come. Make time for your friends, go on holiday and have family movie nights. Enjoy spending as much time as you can with your family.
Write a will
Writing a will is something you should already be thinking about in your twenties and it is something you should definitely get done sooner rather than later. Your will allows you to detail where your money and your property will go after you pass, and it is here that you can make sure you write people you care about into the will. You can make sure that the necklace you’ve had for generations goes to your daughter, that your house goes to your partner and your money is distributed between your family. You can write a will and update it at any time, so make sure that you do this soon.
Plan your funeral
The worst thing to think about when trying to live a positive life is a funeral. However, you will want to start planning your funeral with a funeral directors fairly soon and maybe even putting a small sum towards it over the years to save your family having to fork out a huge sum. Funerals are expensive so you can do a huge favour to your grieving family by having everything ready. You can also make the celebration about your life and not your death, adding colour and putting some great music on for your family and friends. It is a chance for people to remember you as you were and you can do this by adding your own touches to the proceedings.
Complete your bucket list
When you think about death you will likely start to think about life and the things you haven’t yet done. Life can be incredibly amazing and you can really have some amazing experiences, but how many things have you already experienced? Don’t waste a moment and make yourself a bucket list for your lifetime. You can complete things as often as you can and make sure that you have some incredible memories to look back on during your life.
Enjoy every second
Life is for living, so live it! Don’t waste hours and hours sitting in silence on your phone or the laptop… go out there, speak to your family members and have some good experiences. The world is out there waiting for you, so take it while you can.
