Regrets of the Dying

a woman who worked as a caretaker for the dying records the regrets she heard most often from her patients. the full post is here, but here's the list of regrets:

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'd stayed in touch with my friends.

5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.

quite the mandate to those of us still here.
