There is this one interesting quote I got from Grey’s Anatomy.
Nobody on their death bed wishes they should have worked harder… Oh well tell that to the people who love their job!
That quote got me thinking… Will I ever regret spending a lot of times of my life to work this hard?
Honestly, I don’t think so.
Here are the things I wish I will never think of when I’m about to die someday…
- I should have taken all those very good (yet challenging) opportunities;
- I wish I worked harder to pursue what I really wanted in life;
- I should have told (certain) people how I used to feel about them;
- I wish I didn’t hurt someone’s feeling that bad. Nobody deserves to be treated that way;
- I should have asked for forgiveness for the great mistakes I have ever done;
- I wish I have travelled more. I want to see more, feel more, live more…
- I should have loved myself more.
From all seven things listed above, my biggest fear is definitely number 4. I have been bent and broken so that I know how terrible it can feel inside. I would really hate myself if I ever make other people feel that bad. I’ve spent years of my life trying to be better and I hope I make a good progress on it.
I also still remember that one quote that says, “We only live once, but if we do it right, once is enough.”
I hope I will have lived my life to the fullest before I die. I hope that on my death bed, I will not be haunted by all the 7 things I listed in this blog.
I only live once, but if I do it right, once is enough.
