One of my favourite pages in Macleans magazine was the last one called The End. It featured the obituary of an interesting Canadian, not a famous Canadian, but one who had lived their life in a special way. Macleans will no longer publish the beloved feature.
As a kind of farewell for The End writer Michael Friscolanti read twelve years worth of obituaries and made a list of three life lessons gleaned from other peoples’ lives.
- Find love. It is life’s greatest privilege and reward.
- Be yourself. Follow your own path.
- Don’t feel sorry for yourself.
Good advice from people who lived their legacy.
