7PS: You’re invited to my funeral ☠️ (Please RSVP)

by | Jul 7, 2024

Read time: 1 minute, 371 words.

My resume makes me cringe.

It’s an obnoxious litany of my accomplishments.

You don’t care how many books I’ve written or awards I’ve won.

And frankly, neither do I.

I guess I could just delete it…

But then I think…what if I miss out on an opportunity?

I’m still struggling on the path to detach from material desires.

The thing is…

I don’t want to be remembered for my resume or what I achieved.

So…how do I want to be remembered?

I decided to write my own eulogy.

Discover the legacy I hope to leave behind (and what music/food I want at my farewell).

And YES, you’re invited to my funeral. Though I hope it doesn’t happen for a while.

Would you come? (I’d love to know ahead of time!)

Hit reply & let me know.


PS – No need to worry. Just in a self-reflective mood.

PSS – Sorry mom, I know you don’t love this thought experiment.
