Just finished chatting with my long lost friend. She is 58 and still looking so young at her age. After a long chat with her I realized so many things that she is regretting in life. Certainly, from her observations these regrets are most likely the regrets of dying or old people.

I wish I spent most of my time with my family and not at work

I wish I live the life that I wanted, not the life others expected of me

I wish that I let myself happier

I wish I’ve expressed my feelings

While reading all these sentiments my mind is blowing and looking back on my past years; I’ve never thought of all these regretful feelings will arise when we aged. I just realized that when we get old chances are to have these regrets. Sometimes, listening to others stories will help us open our mind into something that we are not aware of.

Honestly, if you are 70s or 80s or let’s say if today is your last day on earth, would you have any of these regrets? I guess your answer is yes.

Well this is awakening, if we aren’t living a life that is true to ourselves, then certainly we aren’t able to attract the right person for us, the right relationship for us.

Working too hard is one of the most common excuses for not finding love. If you feel like your love life is out of your control, it can be easy to focus on something you feel like you can control – your career. This is a dangerous sign that can ultimately sabotage your long term happiness.

Not realizing that happiness is a choice – it is a skills that can be learned.

Not having the courage to express your feelings can cause you to miss out on a real connection with someone special.

There is truly only one real danger that we must concern ourselves with and that is closing our hearts to the possibility that love exists.”

Don’t wait until your dying day to realize that happiness is a choice.

Choose happiness today and give yourself the best gift you could possibly get: a life without regrets.
