This TED talk by Candy Chang is a great lesson in how to live life to the full. In response to her grief at the death of a friend, and after reflecting on death and how to come to terms with her loss Candy decided to set up a large blackboard wall in her New Orleans neighbourhood with the sentence: Before I die I want to………………
The response to her wall was phenomenal and other cities followed suit. You can see how Candy’s important message has spread by checking out her website Before I Die.
Take a few minutes to watch her video and I hope you will feel inspired to think about all the things you want to do before you die. You may even feel inspired to set up your own Before I Die wall in your community here are some resources to get you started or it may just cause you to reflect on what really matters to you. Happiness experiment no 10 is therefore to make a list of all the things you want to do before you die and to start doing them today. Have fun doing all the fun things you want to do and let me know how you get on.
