Let’s talk about death, I know, death usually has a negative connotation, it’s a taboo topic, but it’s important to remember that it exists in contrast to life. In fact, talking about death can be a vehicle to better understanding how to live. That’s exactly what Kate Manser is doing. She is dedicating her life’s work to facilitate her “You Might Die Tomorrow” movement. One very practical exercise she shares is this thing called the Deathbed gutcheck, which is a tool to make decisions authentic to the life you want to live.
I know it might sound difficult, but give it a try. In fact, in a deathbed study Bronnie Ware found that the biggest regret people had was, “they wish they had the courage to live a life true to themselves, not the life others expected of them”. This deathbed gut check is a way to determine just that, and just in case you’re life is cut short, you can be confident that you are truly living.
