The only Certain thing is Uncertainty
Life has a way of reminding us that nothing is certain. The only predictable thing about life is that it is unpredictable! For the thrill seekers, this is great – each day offers new adventures and new challenges. But for most of us, we get the peace of mind from having a plan in place to hedge life’s surprises.
There are certain risks and crisis’s we face each day, and we have certain levels of planning to help mitigate those risks. We wear our seatbelts, we look both ways before we cross, and we have homeowner’s insurance. These plans help lessen the impacts on those uncertainties. When it comes to estate planning, the risk or crisis that we all face is our death or incapacity. Who will be in charge, and who will get our stuff if we could not manage it ourselves. When you don’t plan your estate, it can create hardships for your family. There are added expenses, and a potential for in-fighting and broken relationships.
A great step to mitigate those harsh risks is to have a proper estate plan created. Some key elements include a Revocable Trust, Last Will, and Health Care Directives. Proper estate planning, with personalized guidance and advice is the best way to get the peace of mind you deserve.
You need to plan your estate now. Humans do not have an expiration date stamped on our feet, so we have to plan before the time comes, before our expiration. This means the sooner you plan, the more secure you will feel knowing that if something does happen before you hope or expect. Your family will know what to do and will make a difficult time a little easier.
Take some of the uncertainty out of your life and have your estate planned today.
