A client emailed me this blog post (summarised here), written by Bronnie Ware, a palliative care worker who was reflecting on her conversations with patients.

When she questions her patients about any regrets they had or anything they would do differently, common themes surfaced again and again. Here are the most common five:

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 didn’t work 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.

How true this is.

What could you change so you don’t have the same regrets?
