SAMPLE EXCERPT:

[. . .] Taking life for granted has some benefits I suppose. Not thinking about death allows one to focus more on the present. For example, you can stress out about school, work, friends, or loved ones and what they are doing. However, to live a virtuous life you must embrace the entire range of living and the development process that people must go through; including death. Without the consideration of death and an understanding of its eventuality, you are not really living a life that encompasses the full range of experiences and the experience is really what life is all about.

Journal Entries

1) Choose someone you love - write them a letter - about your love for them.

Grandma,

I know your last years were hard and I know that your brain would only remember certain things at certain times. I want you to know I do not blame you for anything mean that you said before your death. I also hope that you understood that I have always loved you so much and that I appreciate everything you have done for me.

2) Write about your legacy - in past present, and/or future tense. What is your legacy - what is it that you have given or left or leave behind you. How will you be remembered?

I would like to be remembered as a kind and compassionate person that people could come to with their problems; someone that people can really open up to and trust.

3)how do you cope with the reality that your clients are dealing with? Write a bit about the way(s) you are contextualizing their reality - and perhaps you own in the process.

I use my own experiences with death to give me the empathy I need to understand what they are going through. This gives me the strength and compassion to be patient and provide as much as I can for the clients through this difficult period.

4) your first exposure to death - (pet or human) and when it occurred

When I was a child I had a dog that died. I think I was five or six years old. I couldn't really understand what had happened to the dog. My mom told me that he had went to heaven but that didn't really make sense to me at the time. I wanted him to come back from heaven and be about of our lives again.

5) your coping mechanisms/grief process

Meditation

Music therapy

Talking about stress

Exercise

6) Bucket list - what do you want to do before your death?

Travel

Have a family reunion

Write an autobiography

Skydive
