Crossing the Weekend Threshold Inspiration: Five Regrets commonly expressed on death beds

I spend a good amount of time thinking about mortality.

I don’t believe in the afterlife, and taking that into account, I feel it makes each day taste a little sweeter. I refuse to think that things I do now will be bettered when we all reconvene in heaven for eternal life with Yeshua.

Reminders of mortality punch me in the teeth to make sure I soak up my time with my Tina and loved ones.

I read this list from Bonnie Ware about the five most common regrets she heard when working with patients in palliative care.

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 didn’t work 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.
