Often self-development courses include an assignment of writing your own obituary as a way of seeing what you want to be and do in life. I thought it might be fun to boil all that down to a few words; words that could fit on a headstone. That’s right, we’re going to write our own epitaphs, if we dare. Think about it: we don’t want to leave this to chance, like the “unfortunate” Louise.
I’d want my epitaph to represent my love of family, home, writing, community-building; the adventure of life itself. I’d choose these words for my epitaph:
“She loved life”
What will your epitaph say?
