Tips On Penning Your Eulogy - Deepstash

Tips On Penning Your Eulogy

  1. What you do everyday matters the most to your loved ones, especially children. If your everyday, mundane activities make others feel loved, you will be remembered for them.
  2. If the values that you claim to have are just on paper, then certain specific habits need to be developed to incorporate those values in your life. Your eulogy has to be truthful, not simply a collection of inspirational quotes that are not implemented by you.
  3. The gap between the story in your eulogy and your current story is your opportunity to change.

MORE IDEAS FROM Live for Your Eulogy, Not Your Obituary

  • An obituary is a formal ‘public resume’ of a life that has now ended. It can include details like the place of birth, location, work and the names of the surviving family members. It is like a LinkedIn profile along with the Facebook profile picture.
  • A eulogy(pronounced You-luh-jee), by contrast, is about sharing memories, stories, quirks and the human element of the deceased. It captures the legacy and impact of the deceased.

  • Normally, a eulogy is written by a loved one after someone’s demise.
  • By writing one’s own eulogy while one is still alive and breathing, the process is reverse-engineered and a self-commitment is made to live a courageous life, which is true to one’s ideals.
  • It is not an exercise to make one feel depressed but to understand the goals, values and desires of one’s life.

You’re Choosing To Live The Way You Live Right Now

We are responsible for the life we’re living right now. If your life is boring, you have the power to make changes.

Feeling helpless won’t be beneficial in the long term. So instead, make the decision to take ownership and choose the things that will transform your life into something that you're enjoying and cherishing.
