Next month is my birthday and I will be 37 years old (did I just admit that?). Even though I wish I could say that I was only going to be 25, the truth is I am not getting any younger. Each day that goes by I am always thinking of the future. I not only think about my future, I think about my children’s future too!
Now that December 21, 2012 has passed, I feel a little more on ease about thinking about what the future has in hold for me. While I was not a firm believer in Doomsday, there was still always that “what if” thoughts in the back of my mind.
In the past when I was working on the clock for my last employer, I had health benefits and I also had a life insurance policy. The policy didn’t give my family a whole lot if something happened to me, but it would have definitely helped if something was to have happened to me. Back when I had life insurance I was also a lot younger and I didn’t even think much about having it. Now that I will be the big 40 in just a few years, I am now thinking more about my future and thinking I need to get some type of life insurance policy for my husband and I to protect the family in case of an unexpected death.
While many don’t want to think about their spouse passing away before them, the reality is that accidents happen and it is always better to be prepared. I watch the news daily rather it be on TV or online and see so many stories of things happening to people that you honestly think “it would never happen to me”. So this year in addition to all the goals I have already set, setting up an insurance policy for my husband and I is going to be something I will be adding to my list.
Do you currently have a life insurance policy to help your loved ones?
