Doing Things That Make Us Happy: 

 

Although the moment of self-realization can be reckoning, living with the shock and horror of your own evil can be disconcerting. And, I have my regrets and my share of what ifs. Failure to recognize that my loved one was dying of a deadly disease that was growing inside them for many years. Sending a text that must have caused deep hurt. Releasing the arrow of words that I cannot take back. Regret that I want to be a planet saver, but not doing anything substantial to make a dent in that claim. I regret possibly letting down people who might have been counting on me. I regret not prioritizing volunteering my time to those who will love more of my my attention.

The Top Five Regrets of the Dying ~ Bronnie Ware:

 

1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
2. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.
3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.

This is the “Before I Die” wall in Duluth, Georgia. This Global Art Contributory Project started by Candy Chang has brought the conversation of death to the forefront.

Asking that question to oneself requires a deliberate answer. It gives us a chance to start a daring conversation with ourselves. It gives us the drive to live life in the fullest and most meaningful way possible.

Many people live with regrets like not having traveled enough when they could, or not spending enough time with their children because of how much they worked. Many of us wonder if we loved enough and loved well. What’s on your bucket list?
