Newsletter – Summer 2017

Greetings from the Elisabeth Kübler-Ross Foundation!

The end of summer often brings a reunion of neighbors who have returned home following a holiday away — even if a brief break meant going to visit family or friends the next town over. During this special time, conversation often drifts toward, “Where did you go? What did you do? How was it?”
Imagine if there was a similar, quite simple Q&A process at the end of each of our lives, one in which we were asked, “Where did you go? What did you do? How was it?”
Would you look back with a smile, knowing that you gave it everything you had or would you feel pangs of regret over not seizing opportunities for fun, laughter, or meaningful exchange?
I’m thankful for Elisabeth’s messages as they’re often just the right voice in my ear, reminding me that especially in these uncertain times, it’s important to do everything you can, to “live, so you do not have to look back and say, “God, how I have wasted my life.”
Wishing you a bountiful August!
Dianne Gray
