It is the time of year for sweetheart, for cuddly kisses, for heart shaped chocolate and for overpriced floral arrangements. Love is in the air and I was just reading the history of Valentine’s Day and was inspired by the unwavering devotion to his faith and the love for others that St. Valentine had. It is the love of oneself and for the love of another that brings you to the decision to consider a life insurance plan and to truly implement it.
It is for the love of someone else that you establish a life insurance plan. You won’t ever need the funds – you are ensuring a legacy for yourself. You are giving yourself comfort that when you die, the people or causes that you cherish in life are taken care of.
It is for the love of yourself and your family that you take out a critical illness plan. You pay into the policy with the hopes that you won’t get sick. If you do get sick, you can reassure your loved ones that you still have funds to tap into so that you can keep your home and lifestyle.
It is for the love of your children that you purchase Children’s critical illness protection. No one wants to see their child get sick. My son had a febrile seizure last year – it is not an experience that I would wish on my enemy to witness. It is because we love them so much that we would toss away the world to be there for them, to comfort them and to support them in their time of sickness (should it ever occur – and I pray it doesn’t). The critical illness policy for kids ensures that if they do get sick, you can take that time away from work, you can be with them unconditionally and still have a home to bring them back to.
Valentine’s Day is all about love. Love is what moves us, drives us, comforts us and brings us to tears. Love yourself honestly, love your family unconditionally and love your neighbour respectfully.
Happy Valentine’s Day.
