I was just scrolling on Facebook when I came across this amazing article: The Top 5 Regrets of the Dying
Yes I know, totally morbid. But the top regret has got me shoooook, and not because I was shocked by it, but because I have been thinking about this topic a lot this new year!
So one of the top regrets that the dying share is this…
“1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.”
“This was the most common regret of all. When people realise that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people had not honoured even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made. Health brings a freedom very few realise, until they no longer have it.”
– And this is why I will forever encourage myself and my little family to do what they love! If you are not hurting anyone, forget the standards and social norms other people set, forget judgement, because living your best life is being happy with who you are and what you’re doing!
Imagine being on your death bed and realising your whole life was trying to fit into what everyone else expected of you. Or having not done the things that people thought you couldn’t. Even though it would have been your absolute dream!
Which is why I plan to continue blogging and building up my Instagram page, because it is something I love to do!
