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....
