The "Questions Over Coffee" series is designed to instigate interesting conversation, especially for individuals, loved ones, and caregivers coping with illness. The questions can also be used to connect with healthy loved ones, friends, clients, strangers and ourselves. Grab a cup of coffee (or tea!) and start talking . . .
Once again I have come up with a question that is hard to answer because there are so many possibilities. We cannot know the circumstances of our death or whether we will get the chance to impart profound wisdom on our death beds. However, if I have that chance, I would want to make sure whoever is with me remembers that seeking love outside of ourselves will often end in disappointment. When I go, I want my loved ones (and everyone) to hear me say, "Don't forget to love yourself first." It makes life easier when we do that AND it helps the entire world.
