10 questions to ask yourself for peaceful living and graceful dying
“Starting to plan for your death is an act of self-care because it allows you to get really clear on who you are and what you value.”
“Death is not a medical event. It’s cultural event. It’s a life event. It just is. It’s not something that needs to be treated or done away with.”
“I hope that people will clap after I die out of joy for the life that i have led, and for the grace in which I let go. I hope that my death can be a teaching tool if this life doesn’t accomplish what I’m up to while i’m living, maybe my death will be.”
