Aim Higher This Valentine’s

It’s almost here!!!

That wonderful day smack dab between the 17 days you almost actually stuck to your New Year’s resolutions and St. Patrick’s Day, when you totally forget about resolutions.

(17 days? Hey, that’s a new record for most people!)

Well … before you go diving mouth-first into a heart shaped box of chocolates, let’s talk about how much you’re NOT going to blow it this year. Let’s talk about the TRUE sentiment of Valentine’s Day.

It is not about overpriced roses. Or about a flying diaper baby with weaponry slung around its wee little chest. It is definitely not about mowing down everything but the hard nougaty pieces in that should-have-been-shared 10 lb. chocolate candy heart over the course of only 3 days.

Nuh-uh, definitely not about that! (* looks around sheepishly *)

At the heart of the matter, Valentine’s Day is about love. Yes it’s corny … but it’s good corny.

So, what happens if your love story ends like the one in Titanic? Perhaps things don’t get quite so dramatic, but hear me out. What if you finally give in and even eat the hard nougaty pieces from that candy heart and all that difficult chewing makes your ticker stop ticking?

Are you prepared?

Will your loved ones be well cared for? Or will they be totally screwed?

THAT is something to think about on Valentine’s Day. Will your love and care continue to show when you’re no longer around to buy candy hearts? Or will you leave your loved ones scrambling for information in a fog of confusion and despair?

Don’t blow your dough on chocolate. Make a plan.

Where there’s a Will, there’s a way.

Make sure your loved ones know who gets what when you’re gone. Make sure they know how to access all those accounts where you only get emailed statements and all of your online accounts they may not even know exist. Make sure they can find the key to the riding mower and are aware of your funeral plans. Leave them a love note. Offer a post-mortem toast.

Because what good were all those candy hearts if you leave loved ones totally lost when you’re eventually called to join that cherubic chorus of heavenly arrow slingers?

Get it done. Don’t put it off. Use this holiday as your impetus to prove your love in a genuine and critical way. It may not be a traditional gift, but it’s way more valuable and comes without cavities and weight gain. Give your loved ones peace of mind.

Candy may be dandy, but preparing for your impending demise is even sweeter.
