The last thing you want to think about today is somewhere down the road facing your deathbed. However, it should be the first thing on your mind when you start everyday of your life.

Living life to it’s best has to happen right now today. Otherwise it’s too late. You can’t go back and live your life over.

You know the old saying: ‘I don’t want to be laying on my deathbed wishing I would have done things different’. Well, many people have.

A palliative care nurse, someone who cares for the dying, has listened to a lot of patients who have come to the end of their days. The anonymous nurse says: ‘People grow a lot when faced with their own mortality. the emotional changes a dying person experiences are phenomenal, ranging from denial to remorse, fear to anger and eventually acceptance’.

When she asked her dying patients if they had any regrets in their life, the answers were different, but common themes emerged again and again.

The top five regrets people have on their deathbed:

  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.
