Death is an interesting subject, especially for a person past 75 years old. I've had a life of the best health anybody could want and although I'm a two time cancer survivor, wondering about the last days is interesting and aggravating!
Almost everything in my life has been positive so I ask myself why I'm so distracted by negative possibilities and missing out on all the positive possibilities every day. In fact, every morning I remind myself to throw the covers off, get dressed, get in my car and let's go! And every day, life is very good.
Today, my church teaching was about the last days of people's lives and what they were thinking about and I was introduced to a lady by the name of Bronnie Ware, who worked as a hospice worker and listened to what people were saying during their last days. Listen and watch this short video:
During this video, you heard the five most repeated regrets people had as they were facing their last Day and they got my attention and I'm writing this to let you know that I'm going carry these five regrets with me each day as a reminder so I don't repeat them some day!
What about you?
- How prepared or you to face death that is not sudden?
- What might be your biggest regrets?
- What behavior are you exhibiting to minimize these regrets?
Let's start Living daily with positive intentions so we minimize regrets later!
