This is an interesting Life Coaching session in which we are to inspect our lives and see whether or not we have regrets. After hearing the top 5 regrets that people, whom only had 2 weeks left to live, I began to ponder into my own life.
I think a lot of us put judgements on ourselves thinking that if we do not have a successful career, car, house and a family at a certain age, we have failed and therefore, are not happy. At one time in my life, I had even thought this! After my injury, I had lost everything of ‘value’ or so I thought. Because of my injury, I no longer have a successful career. I no longer have my own house to live in. Heck, I do not even own my own car anymore! So it is no wonder with this way of thinking, I was terribly unhappy for the first year of living with my mom! I had thought happiness was found within all of those things!
According to those people whom only had a short time left to live, they had all wished that they sought the courage to live a life true to ourselves, not worked so hard that they missed what was important to them, having the courage to express their feelings, staying in touch with their friends over the years and allowing themselves to be more happier!
The number 1 regret was not being more happier in their lives!
At the end of our lives, happiness isn’t about materialistic things, such as cars, houses, so on and so forth. Sure, it is nice to have a nice car or a nice house, but it isn’t going to give us true happiness. Indeed, happiness is a Choice we can make each and every day! We do not need to wait until ‘whatever’ comes into our lives! Each and every day, I Choose to be happy and be grateful for what I Do Have at this point in my life so that I will not look back on my life with regret. Thank you for this great Life Coaching session!
