Conversation Starters

Many people ask me, “How do I get the conversation started?”

The very first piece of advice I want to say is to breath…listen to the non-verbal clues going on and try hard not to run away.  Talking about life/terminal illness/death/dying concerns can be so easy to avoid…until it is all too late.  Then, it seems impossible to live with the regret of never having that chance again after someone can no longer talk with you.

So, to get the conversation started…sieze the moment, the opportunity and try to let it become a sweet moment in time to cherish.  Those conversations actually become a part of your legacy (a valuable heirloom) from that loved one.

More later…
