Reminder: Dying is about you. Death is about those you leave behind.

My family is dealing with someone who died without a will and the headache, heartache, and inevitable fallout that comes with that.

You are going to die.. Plan for it. Start today. Don’t wait.

Mental illness can be an explanation but not an excuse…

 It’s a very fine line between the two. My own mental illness has made me say, react, or act in ways that are not appropriate to the situation. I find the easiest way for myself to skirt that line is to simply apologize and not try to explain, because it’s too difficult for it not sound like an excuse. If an apology with explanation is warranted or expected, I try to follow these guidelines when I do.

It can be too easy, as a mental illness survivor, to use it as a crutch. A get out of jail free card. But, we still live in a world of cause and effect — actions and reactions and consequences. While including our illness as part of an explanation may help with understanding and open an easier path to forgiveness, we should also not be surprised when it doesn’t. When we are called to account just like anyone else would be. We should accept such a fate as a learning experience. Give ourselves some grace and embrace the opportunity to continue our path toward healing.

Derek Sivers discusses his recent experience of reading the Bible start to finish. Really great suggestions. Years ago I did the same, ventured further into many non-canonical works as well. Useful, even for non-Christians.
