I recently read a story about a woman that spent a large part of her career working with the elderly in the late stages of life. This woman found that there were five specific things that they all said they regret.
"I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me"
"I wish I hadn’t worked so hard"
"I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings"
"I wish I had of stayed in touch with my friends"
"I wish that I allowed myself to feel true happiness"
Imagine that... getting to the end of your life and realising that you don't get a do-over.
The reality is, most people do exactly that.
It is safe to say I personally have been exposed to some interesting, situations in life so far. Though, somehow through all the noise I have found myself clear on values and grounded in more ways than one.
