Create Your Own Personal Mission Statement . . .
The ability to truly claim your life is reflected in a personal mission statement. What you stand for and what you might die for are deeper spiritual values that require introspection and deserve documentation. Matters of the heart spawn plans of intention and action that are fundamental to personal dignity. Dignity affords you the certainty of being right along with the ability to proclaim your right to live and let die. Thus, my own sentiment and initiative:
Through the vast experience of practicing emergency medicine, I have seen the good, the bad and the tragic ways our loved ones depart this world. Consequently, I am evermore passionate about inviting and leading those with terminal illness to a Promised Land of their own choosing by way of Graceful DeparturesTM.
People in the final stages usually come to a decision point where they are ready to let go of life. But in this weakened state, they often give in to the wishes of caregivers and healthcare providers who may not be ready to give up on them or let them go. The futurist concept of Graceful Departures™ originated from my desire to change the fear-based perception of dying to the destination vacation of a lifetime, charting the end-of-life course with ease and tranquility.
