Your Life Journals are what you wish them to be. They can be private for family, restricted for friends, public and even anonymous & all with live video and pictures.
It’s a place you can create for the future so your loved ones or those you invite can log in and get some special time with you when they need you.
Tell the story of your life; leave your daily “I love you’s”, your favourite jokes, bedtime stories for the young ones, share life stories, recall and share old memories, recipes etc.
You can do this with family and make it as much fun as you like. It is only limited only by you.
Congratulations, you have taken the first step in creating your life legacy
On Zoom, you can “enhance” your onscreen appearance. I tried that and appreciate the tasteful ultra-subtle airbrushing you get. Like putting a thin dab of Vaseline on a “normal” camera lens, or standing in the right intensity of sunlight when you do a selfie. But no such luck with Skype. The other day, I tried Skyping an overseas friend. I...

I've been following a few stories about former Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh, who recently died in a house fire in Connecticut. Just 46 years old. I didn't know he was struggling with drug addition and with his mental health. That he was found alone in a locked shed full of candles.
All that Hsieh did and had, but he was yearning and...

Just laying here thinking that...........I think I like it better knowing when I'm going to die rather than not knowing. If we ever get to the point where medical science can pinpoint within 1 year of when you're going to pass, I would take them up on the offer. I would want to know.
We all know we're going, the kicker...

Did you ever get the feeling that there was unfinished business you had to take care of? Business you never even thought about before?
Well, I had a dream last night. I didn’t recognize where I was, but I remember a sense of peace. The last thing I remember before I woke up was that I was getting ready to sing...

I don't know if this is a regret or not, but I remember many times in my life when I should have spoken my mind more than I did. So many times I would “beat around the bush” when telling somebody something. Like telling someone how you feel about them but being coy or elusive about it. Like it's a...

I just realized something I think is important. That old saying “Live like you were dying” seems to be taken for granted. At the very least, it is taken out of context. Like “Have fun every day” or something like that. When we are faced with knowing we are dying from a medically diagnosed illness, things like humility and self-awareness...

Just a thought I had, dear family.
They say that the rear-view mirror of a car is small for a reason. That the windshield of a car is so large for a reason. Those reasons being, that you should focus more on what's ahead of you rather than looking back. When we reach a certain point in our lives though, we...

I wish both sides would stop freaking out that their legal ballots will be thrown out or that illegal votes are being counted right now -- all in hopes of swaying an election and subverting our democracy. It's simply nonsense. I'm a veteran of the United States Army. I've been stationed in South Korea, Texas, South Carolina, and Iraq during...

Did your parents check your Halloween candy for razors and needles? I don't know why that was a thing, but I know they made a big deal about it at school when I was growing up. My parents always looked mine over. I do it too with my boys! I mean, we aren't going trick-or-treating this year, but I certainly...

-waking up to my cat gently headbutting me and purring.
-making fried eggs for breakfast and actually having them turn out perfectly. No busted egg yolks this time.
-cuddling with my husband on the couch while watching a movie.
-getting an unexpected phone call from an old friend who wants to reconnect.
-finishing the last chapter in an...

My nephew brought home an anti-drug use pamphlet that brought on a wave of nostalgia. Flashback to the past:
As kids, we'd be warned about drug addiction, and we'd get coached through scenarios about how to say no to drugs when a stranger offered them to us. Strangers just milling about in a public setting waiting to snare us with...

We have the same disease - my brother, my son, and I. The difference is that Huntington's disease has struck my brother hard, and while my son and I have the genetic markers for it, we remain symptom free. My brother is absolutely tormented by his symptoms. He's on medication, but it only helps so much. He finds it difficult...
