All soul’s day-on death,dying and living

Today and of course this month we are drawn to think of those that have gone before us. Well, what about us? An interesting exercise (as long as we do not take it too seriously) is to imagine our own funeral. Many people when they look back upon their life at their own death wish that they had had slightly different priorities. That they had spent more time with those they truly cared about and worried less about the things that took up so much time but did not surprisingly matter.

When you picture yourself at your own funeral it helps to look back over your life to day and to reflect on what needs to be changed for the future. It’s a great chance for a wake up call and for a little shift in how we live our lives.

  3. When something causes us to transform or make a shift most find that they want to life each day to the fullest as if it was the last. Living life through personal happiness and abundance allows us all to do that.

  4. That is so true, yet it is sad that it takes something else to make us all sit up and take notice.
