Life is full of big events – exciting ones, sad ones, momentous ones, life-changing ones, but unfortunately, one of the biggest events in life happens post-death – our funeral. It is a solemn and sad affair, where friends and family meet to celebrate a life and remember and honour a loved one post-death. All the important people are generally there, including friends and family from near and far, and those who you may not have seen for a year. The problem is, however, the guest of honour isn’t there – you. Terminal illness and death do that to you.
Rather than wait for the funeral, why not celebrate your life while you’re still here and revel in that time with your loved ones. I am sure there may be a hundred good reasons why not to, terminal illness can do that to you, but none of them is valid and they can all be overcome. The reason to celebrate your life is that you are worth it, and the memories created will last a lifetime for those still here once you’re gone.
Even if the ‘big event’ is a coffee with one other person or a larger event with many people, we encourage you to celebrate your life: to give thanks for the good, to perhaps ask forgiveness for the not so good and to accept that you do matter. Your life does matter and nothing, not even death, can take that away.
If you’re unsure where to start with planning a big event, download our e-book – a useful tool to get the thought processes flowing. If you have any ideas for a big event, we love to hear about them too. The more ideas we can share the better.
Our Big Event
We are planning our very own Big Event on the Sunshine Coast and are so excited to share it with you once it unfolds.
We cannot give away too many secrets yet, but would love as many of you as possible to come along. Stay tuned for more details post COVID-19.
