rather than be depressed about death, write your obituary. it's better than a resume because you have to think of all the things you've done that matter. things like teaching someone to read, volunteering at a retirement community, organizing a fund raiser for a worthy cause.
take stock of all the lives you've influenced in a positive way. therapists are not the only ones who support people through tough times.
be a dream enabler--help your peers fulfill their fondest ambitions. now that matters.
