You Only Live Once, Have No Regrets..

Bronnie Ware, a palliative hospice nurse, wrote a book on her observations of the dying patients she took care of.  The title of the book is “The Top 5 Regrets of the Dying.”

You can get the book on Amazon in paperback or kindle version.

Below are the five regrets and the link takes you to an article about the book.  Life is short and there is no room for regrets, only lessons learned.

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.

    • Oh, Stu that is so true… I don’t know if you read the remark on your blog a couple of weeks ago from me and being diagnosed with Breast Cancer for the second time in 16 years. Talk about rocking your foundation!!! I have learned so many lessons from this over the past two months. I am so thankful that with just one surgery to remove my breast they were able to get all of the cancer 🙂

      Still is a bit mind-blowing, but time….. one never knows


      • Yes I read that Tina, I replied at the time (maybe it got lost in the ether!). You are a courageous woman – not because of what you have ben through, but the way in which you get through it. Be proud of yourself every day. x

      • Hi Stu

        We do what we need to do and your book “change your life one day at a time” is just about that…. choices that we can make. I thank you for being such an inspiration to me. 🙂
