Regrets…I’ve had a few.

Five regrets of the dying:

Number one: I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.

Number two: I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.

Number three: I wish I had let myself be happier.

Number four: I wish I’d had the courage to express my true self.

Number five: I wish I’d lived a life true to my dreams, instead of what others expected of me.”

All of these hit hard…but one stuck out. Number 3: I wish I had let myself be happier. Is it really that simple? Is that the key to happiness? I am going to choose happiness and joy this holiday season. I will let you know how it goes.

Please comment and tell me which one spoke to you…

I am a mom of 4 who thought she was home free with her oldest son when he went off to college. My serious blunder? Genetics and being naive or maybe just plain stupid.

    Hi, I just found your blog, as I was skimming the blog-o-sphere for other recovery-related blogs. I have to say I’d choose 4 or 5. They are kinda the same, aren’t they? Expressing my true self would result in living my dreams, at least that’a how it seems from here. The further I get into my recovery/spiritual walk, the closer I think I am to realizing those wishes. Thanks for that thought-provoking post!
