WrIte your own obituary To wake up to what matters most
Today, as a way of reflecting on the vision you have for yourself, take time to imagine that you’ve reached the end of your life, and write your own obituary as you would like it to be. How do you want to be remembered?
Although reflecting on our own mortality may seem morbid, taking a moment to consider our own death can wake us up to the preciousness of our life and to how we want to live it. As the poet Mary Oliver asked, ‘Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?’
In this obituary, you can paint a picture of the life you have lived, reflecting upon all its different aspects:
• Your biggest accomplishments.
• Your greatest contributions.
• What you stood for as a person.
• What most mattered to you.
This retrospective reflection on your life may give you a clearer perspective on what really matters.
