5 Regrets Of The Dying! [VIDEO]
As morbid as this post may be, I found it to be interesting and insightful. This list was put together by a woman named Bonnie Ware, who worked as a Hospice nurse for several years. During her years taking care of the dying, she compiled a list of regrets from various patients. Ware noticed a common theme, so she put out a book called “The Top Five Regrets Of The Dying.” You may want to add these to your bucket list….
Regret 1– The most common regret expressed by each patient…”I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself….not the life others expected of me.” Ware says that most of the people hadn’t lived out half of their dreams.
Regret 2- This one came mostly from the men. “I wish I had not worked so hard.” It makes sense….if you spend your life chasing the mighty dollar….life will pass you by. It’s life…live it!
Regret 3- “I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.” If ya feel it say it. Tell the ones you love how much you love them…daily!
Regret 4- ” I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.” Family and true friends is really all you have in this life.
Regret 5- Is about happiness. Many of the patients said “I wish that I had let myself be happier.” Happiness is a choice, which many people don’t realize until its too late.
Here’s a great song/video that somewhat goes along with this post….
