How long do you have left to live?


Have you been home for the holidays?


The older I get the more one topic seems to come up with my father and I - death. He’s a lawyer and he wants to be prepared. For us it’s not uncomfortable to talk about, is death scary to you?


I was reading Steven Bartlett’s book last night when this chart came up detailing how many days we have left to live at different ages:



I don’t like to think about death, but I think it’s easier to talk about the further away it seems. What I struggle with more than death is the weight of responsibility I feel knowing I’m an only child with two parents to take care of.


Again, it’s far away, but do you want to know my biggest fear?


I’m afraid I’ll let my parents down when they need me most.


I know I’m not alone here. We have an aging population in the Western World and we’re going to reach a crisis soon of a lot of dependent older people with no one to take care of them.


Nursing homes in the USA are already around $12,000 per month, and it’s terrible to think about people without children who don’t have access to one.


I had a conversation with my friend Tanya last week where she encouraged me to do Advanced Care Plannjng with my parents. Do you know what Advanced Care Planning is? Advance care planning involves discussing and preparing for future decisions about your medical care if you become seriously ill or unable to communicate your wishes.


Anxiety hates a plan. So I’m making two with my parents. Would you be willing to do the same?
