It is hard to go to funerals without thinking and wondering about my own. The reminder that life is a fatal condition with a 100% mortality rate... we just don't know when and how. We come together to remember and honour those who have died and to acknowledge the loss and the pain of those left behind.
Funerals are about the dead, but they are for the living.
Sometimes I think I want to live a big, impactful life so my funeral is jam packed. Then I think I want to live such a long time that the impact I made on the world has come and gone, and those in attendance are surprised to learn about some of the excellent adventures I am so enjoying today. I think I'll aim for the latter.
