What Is The Project?


People worldwide with a black folder.  Prepared to live their lives on purpose and leave a legacy. 

I  have had a black folder since 2001, you can read the post here about how I started. The actual contents of each folder will be different, unique and as individual we all are. 

A Black Folder is a special folder that contains:
  1. A heartfelt letter to your loved ones (things you might not say or get to say; like goodbye, I love you, or I'm sorry; this also could guide you on what you need to say to your loved ones one day)
  2. Your musings about how you envision your funeral (if that's what you decide on having...someone has to plan for this...why not you?)
  3. Information to your loved ones about your financial situation, unfinished business, things to be done or how you would do things if you were still alive.
  4. Special information you might not want to put in your Last Will and Testament. 
  5. It can contain your Last Will and Testament, your Life Insurance Information, your Living Will, etc. 
Why Should You Create A Black Folder?
You will find that once you accept and face the ultimate fear that we all have - one day we will cease to exist as we know ourselves - and begin making preparations for that day it is not only easier to continue to live, but you can start to clean up some unfinished business and make sure you leave a legacy for those who live on after you.

The heart of the Black Folder Project ™ is to have "no regrets" for not having expressed something to your loved ones and not having "lived" your life.  So many people have at this point just existed, seen life as a struggle, with dashed dreams and unfulfilled hopes. This will be your chance to start anew.

Now, not everyone will want to create a black folder, some people just do not want their minds to go there, to think about that.  Not everyone is ready.  But, for those of you who are ready, you will find that after the process of creating your black folders you will be one step closer to answering the below questions:

Who am I?
Who do I love?
What do I need to do next?
How do I live knowing that I will die?
