Never Enough Time?


If you want something bad enough you will find the time to pursue it.  It may take time to figure out how, but if you do not try then you never will.  If you never do it you will always wonder why and regret it.

Bronnie Ware an Australian nurse who worked with the dying wrote a book “The Top Five Regrets of the Dying.”  The number one regret most heard was “I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.”

The link below has an article that talks about her book and the other 4 top regrets.  It is pretty eye opening and really makes you think about what is important to you today.  Time is so valuable you cannot put a price on it.

  1. I think the aspect on her list that i have resolved to change is that of having the courage to express my feelings rather than holding back in order to protect others.
    (I use the expression ‘resolve to change’ rather than ‘regret’ as I feel that life is too short for regrets.)


  2. Hello Tina, Thanks for sharing a thought-provoking blog. Actually, I found it quite comforting. I don’t hold those regrets. Yes, some things could have turned out better or different. But what I have learned is this: We all have choices. It’s up to us to make them.

    I suspect people with regrets don’t make their choices. They just allow things happen. What do you think? Finally, I’d like to share a post I wrote I while ago: Stop Regretting Decisions.

    As ever, Martin


    • Hi Martin
      Thank you for stopping by and also sharing your post with us. I also found Bonnie’s work very interesting and thought provoking. As I said, we need to continually be moving forward and not carry regrets with us.
