The only thing in life that we can be certain of is that all things are impermanent. Nothing ever stays exactly the same. The mere passage of time mandates that the world is in constant flux. While this ever-changing view of reality can be liberating, the inability to predict the future can be unsettling.
When people come to the end of their lives, they often feel the need to look back and take an inventory of themselves. They wish to reflect on what they did well and what they learned. When this exercise is done piecemeal, it oftentimes feels dissatisfactory and incomplete. When this exercise is one with the trained guidance of a Death Doula, this exercise can feel liberating in its efforts to get to the very center of defining a meaningful life.
