Karen has a surprisingly upbeat conversation about end of life planning with Licensed Behavioral Therapist Grace Y. Lin. They talk “Swedish Death Cleaning” (yep, that’s a thing!), our American obsession with happiness, and how a healthy dose of self-awareness about our mortality brings greater fulfillment in our everyday lives.
Farewelling Founder Karen Bussen invites therapist Grace Y. Lin to tell us why we should make a little room in our lives for a conversation about death and dying. Turns out, it’s a gift to your family and it helps you live more mindfully right now. Grace gives us strategies for taking control of our own narrative (at least the parts we can control!). She helps us make a mantra to remind us of what’s most important in life, and how we’d live if we knew for certain our time was limited.
