Being Mortal: What Matters Most

It’s been a while since I contributed to the Being Mortal series. You can catch up here:

Being Mortal: Mortality

Being Mortal: Aging

Being Mortal: Medical Concerns

Being Mortal: Meaning in Old Age

This week, the discussion questions center on discovering from your loved one what matters most to them.

What are the things that matter most to you?

How do you incorporate those things into how you are living your life now? How did you do that before?

What adjustments have you had to make to ensure that the things that matter most to you remain a part of your life? Tell me about that adjustment process.

What did you find most difficult about that adjustment? What was not so difficult? What helped you through the hardest part?

What gave you hope in adjusting your life to make sure the things that matter most to you remain a part of your life?

What meaning did you find in the process? Tell me more about that.

What are some things you still have control over? How does that feel?

How can I better help you voice what matters most to you?

Mortality is a hard topic to engage; our own or a loved one’s. Take courage and engage, anyway. These are important issues, important conversations to have.

Blessings to you today and always.
