stimulating profound conversations about living and dying well
It might seem morbid, but it's actually a great way to assess your values.
Do you ever wonder what people will say about you when you die? If you want to have your final say on your own life from beyond the grave, consider writing your own obituary, like this 35 year old Canadian woman who recently died of cancer.
Writing your own obituary gives you an opportunity to reflect on what is truly valuable to you, and serves as a reminder that we are all living with an expiry date that may come sooner than later. Look at your obituary and edit it every year: notice how your perspective changes, or doesn't. Make sure to keep an updated copy with your personal documents like your birth certificate, Will, and Advance Care Directive.
