Life Coach Ade is flying solo for "Swimming Through the Deep End of Life."
A lot of people feel like they have been dropped in the deep end of the ocean without any safety gear or knowledge of how to swim. Life can feel that way sometimes and we can get caught up thinking about our lack of skills and safety equipment to manage the feeling of metaphorically drowning.
However, it is also important to remember that we are buoyant and full of talents to be each other’s life boats. Life Coach Ade will remind you that you can ride the waves. You can breathe. And if all else fails, you can float until you catch the rhythm of the stroke.
Join Life Coach Ade for a conversation that will awaken the strength inside of you to navigate the deep waters.

It is time to take responsibility to care for ourselves and care for the lives of our loved ones; learn how to step up and not back at the end of life. Do you walk away and see less and less of loved ones as they age or become ill? Are you waiting for a call to attend a funeral and not spend valuable life changing moments with those you love? Maybe you just don't know how to recognize what you don't know about the end of life and how to make adjustments? Do you know; the signs of dying, what a healthcare agent is, when and what hospice may help with, what is palliative care and if or when you may take a loved one home for their last hours?
My guest, Dr. Monica Williams-Murphy, MD, has these answers for us today. She is the author of It's OK To Die which is a very descriptive and informative book that describes many processes and procedures which should be taken care of in the end of life phase. If you don't, as she notes, the decisions will not be for you to make as others will decide for you and it may not be in your best interest, nor what your heart and soul wish.
Time to take control and know a little more about what choices you can make; step up now and do them. Time ticks on and you never know when the fine line that allows you to choose will be taken away.
