If you had to Rewind your Life, What would you Do Differently?

Life must pass whether we see it or not. It doesn’t care about you or me and at a times its brutal. Living in such a reality, living a half-sleepy and half-wake life only brings misery. An Australian nurse who spent above a decade in palliative care, care for the terminally ill and their families, learns that people had a lot to share about their life if there is a listening ear. She documented their regrets on their final days spending on hospital beds. She is Bronnie Ware well-known after her treasured book "Top Five Regrets of Dying". When she nursed the dying people and talked to them, she had interesting discussions about their lives and regrets, she said "common themes surfaced again and again". Let's see what Bronnie wants us to realize before it is too late to catch up on. The following are the top five regrets expressed by the dying people on their deathbeds waiting for their final takeoff.


The top 5 regrets:

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.

As many people had disappeared already telling what they should have done instead of what they did already in their lives, it’s important message for us to learn from them and to live a life of no-regrets. I read somewhere that it is the wise who learns the mistakes from others and live by them instead of committing the same mistakes again. Which one you choose? Honestly, I choose the first one because I don't want to feel miserable falling short of happiness in my life on a deathbed and we have only one life to live. What about you?
