PROMPT: Imagine you have to write your own eulogy after you have passed away. You have lived a fulfilling life so think back (and take your time) to the life you have lived. Consider these questions:

  • how would you like to be remembered after you die?
  • what kind of husband/wife/child/parent would you say you were?
  • what kind of friend/colleague would you say you were?
  • what would you like to have accomplished in your life?
  • what is the legacy you’d like to leave behind?
  • write down how you would have lived and what you would have done.

Since authentic happiness (which is happiness coming from within, independent of happy events) seems to be the thing that’s been on my mind lately, I thought I’d revisit an old exercise I did with a someone in a mindfulness mentorship workshop I attended a few months back.

And I thought I’d share it with you! It’s an extremely simple exercise and you’ll need a pen, a piece of paper and your noggin!

  1. What are your top 3 worries now?
  2. Choose 1 worry. Why should you let it go? Why hold onto it?
  3. What is 1 regret in life?
  4. Why should you let it go? Why hold onto it?

Now… do you see a connection?

5. Fill in the blanks: I’ll be happy when _________.

6. Will _________ bring you permanent happiness?

7. If you had _________ now, will you be happy?
