You’ve probably heard of people who are dying and their “regret lists” before.

This article, however, from a nurse who worked with ‘end of life’ patients struck me so I decided to read it.

The list may not contain anything earth shattering, though I found #1 and #3 interesting and not quite things I had seen on other lists.

Here is the list: The Top Five Regrets of the Dying

Life shouldn’t be about regret. It’s about living.

These lists, though not new, are a good reminder that we must choose to live our lives, rather than having other people choose for us. We only get one shot at this thing, we need to make it count.

As I am fond of saying, Life is meant to be lived, not merely endured.

How can you begin to live a life worth living today?
