Talk of a Lifetime

Throughout your lifetime, you will have many important conversations. For many, one of the most important but often avoided conversations is something called the talk of a lifetime. This is a conversation between loved ones where you discuss things like your fondest memories, the qualities you value, and how you want to be remembered when you pass away.

For many, this is a conversation they want to avoid. Talking about death is something that’s never easy. It’s important to have this talk though because knowing how to honor a loved one is the first step in the process of grieving. By choosing to have this conversation, you’re taking the important step to know how your loved one wants to be remembered.

Where and When

The great thing about this talk is that it can happen pretty much anywhere and with anyone you hold dear. Whether you’re walking through the park, sharing a meal, or fishing on the lake; you can talk about it anywhere.

You don’t need to wait till your loved one is near the end of their life either. The conversation is not just a one-time thing, but rather an ongoing conversation that will ultimately bring you closer to your loved one. It might be difficult to start, but it’s important to understand that it’s helpful to understand how your loved one wants to be remembered.

Start the Conversation

There are a lot of ways that you can start this conversation. Visual prompts are a great tool to use because they allow you to reflect over memories. Looking through an old photo album can begin a conversation about life that transitions into a legacy. Other prompts could be a souvenir from a vacation they went on years ago or some small memento from when they first started dating their spouse.

Memorable places are also a great way to start the conversation. Talking about the church they’ve attended for fifty plus years or something happening in their favorite park. Starting the conversation around a place where they’ve made countless memories is helpful in getting them to open up and begin sharing stories with you.
