Have you ever heard the phrase ‘hindsight is 20/20?’ It makes sense, when you think about it. You certainly wouldn’t have eaten that dish at the restaurant that gave you food poisoning had you seen that coming, right? And you never would have ridden your bike down that big hill with no hands had you known you’d break your arm in two places. It’s much easier to understand life if you are able to work backwards, all the way from your cremation services in Lapel, IN to the beginning. And while that’s not possible, there are certain things you can do to live that way.

Make Amends Sooner

If you have ill feelings toward a family member, you can hold onto that grudge until the end and then regret things once the person passes on and there’s no way to make amends. Or, you can suck it up and see what you can do to get things back on an even level. Forgiveness can go a long way, whether the person deserves or wants it or not. The sooner you make amends, the lighter you will feel and, if you were to look back on your life later, the better it would be for everyone.

Spend Your Time Wisely

There are very few (if any!) people that, at the end of their life, would look back on their time and say, gosh, I wish I’d played on my phone and ignored my kids more. Or, gee, I wish I’d spent more time at the office instead of at soccer games. Of course not! Set your priorities right and recognize what’s really important around you—the people you love. Arrange your time accordingly so you have no such regrets later, if you were to look back on things.

Plan Final Services Ahead

There’s no way to guarantee when your life will end, but you can guarantee what happens after you pass on if you plan in advance. IF you know what you want, let your family in on the secret and take it another step further and plan with a funeral home. You can get things set up, so your family doesn’t have any burdens once you pass on. If you look back on your life after your cremation, you will be glad to have left them with plans that gave them peace of mind.

While it would be much easier to be able to take a sneak peak backwards into your life to avoid certain mistakes, there are some things you can avoid by trying to look ahead and seeing what you might think of your choices in the future.
