I’d rather have a life of “OH WELLS” than a life of “WHAT IFS.”
Because it’s easier for me to take my lumps in ‘oh wells’ than it is to take them in ‘what ifs.’
It also reminded me of a post I’d seen months ago (link below) about the regrets people have on their deathbed.
And my thoughts about the areas I need to work on; specifically regarding my personal relationships, areas I have been consciously and unconsciously working on since.
According to Bronnie Ware the Top 5 regrets people have on their deathbed are:
- I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself.
- I wish I didn’t work so hard.
- I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
- I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
- I wish that I had let myself be happier.
