Very few people spend time thinking about how they want to die much less where they want to die. I would argue that thinking about these two questions will inform your decisions on how you live your life. I recently had a birthday, and I pondered these questions at length. Based on my answers I realized that I had to make a drastic changes in the way I live my life.
For me, dying well means living well. It means living to a good old age and being surrounded by family and friends if possible as I take my last breath. Dying well means not burdening my children and surviving family with a mountain of medical bills when I die. Dying well means optimizing and reorganizing my life to be in the best state of health possible. Dying well means raising my children to be the best they can be. It means raising my children not only be productive members of society but more importantly to be caring members of society.
I leave you with a quote from Morrie Schwartz: “Dying is only one thing to be sad over… Living unhappily is something else”
