Susan Gilster is a firm believer that every day is a gift. She has witnessed many families who put off trips, or delayed legal and financial planning, or even failed to address family conflicts and waited until it was too late.
Many people state that they would want to know in advance if they were to be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or another serious diagnosis, admitting they might quit work, take a trip around the world, or move to their favorite vacation spot. But why wait?
Susan’s latest monthly column for Gannett Newspapers, “What are you waiting for? Act on a dream,” addresses these topics and others with the theme of starting the New Year by taking control of your destiny. Facing these issues, accomplishing tasks and doing something special for yourself is good for the mind, body and spirit.
