I think it is safe to say we were all shocked my Michael Jackson’s recent passing. And Farah Fawcett on the same day!
Did you know that news agencies write the obituaries in advance for celebrities? They have to be prepared. This got me thinking. What would my obituary say?
Now, before I continue, I feel a need to acknowledge some people may think it is morbid to talk about death. I disagree. The reality is that we will all die some day. Hopefully it is later, rather than sooner. Fortunately or unfortunately, we don’t know when that day will come. By acknowledging that our time here is finite, we can continually make choices to take advantage of each precious day we have.
I hope to create my life so that my obituary will read as follows:
Kathianne Sellers Williams touched many lives through her work, writing, and art. She had countless loved ones and all knew how much she loved and valued them. She grew spiritually throughout her whole life and conquered her self-imposed limitations. Kathianne left the world a better place than if she had never existed and inspired others to do the same.
What would your obituary say?
