Happy New Year from Final Fling – the positive thinking, forward planning, reality checking life support system. Since Final Fling began its life in 2012 as a life support system for people faced with making tricky life and death decisions or those thinking ahead, the world has changed.
This week, Sue Friston, Final Flinger, shares her experience of using Final Fling, one year on.
I thought it would be useful to share with others to make 3 key points:
– you don’t have to do everything at once
– one action is better than none
– keep it up… one step leads to another.
Are you actively making life matter? I am acutely interested in making life matter. Every day, top of my to-do list is just that. Every day.
At Final Fling we advocate living life to the full… with a spirit of joie de vivre. That’s what this is all about really… sorting out your affairs so you can get on with living your life. I’ve had two connections this week that reassure me that what we’re doing is indeed valuable.
Writing a eulogy can be a daunting task. How to ‘tell the truth’. How to honour someone. Whether you ‘get it right’. This week, Carole Renshaw shares how writing a eulogy as a work of autobiography transformed a funeral and has made that the standout funeral to date in her experience.
If you’re organising an event to encourage end of life planning, use Final Fling’s unique Fortune Teller to get conversations started.

If that random no.10 bus got you, who would know your funeral wishes?
The scary thing is, one in four of us will NOT die on predictable path. That means we won’t see it coming. Out of the blue, we’ll be here and then gone. And someone else will have to make our funeral arrangements.
Notices and tributes is part of the Life Planning Tools on Final Fling. It acknowledges that in this age of social media, people sometimes want to express grief and celebrate a life together in an online community.
