Bronnie Ware was a nurse caring for patients at the end of their lives. She got to hear their regrets firsthand and wrote a book called ‘The Top Five Regrets of the Dying’.
The top regret people shared was, “I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.”
I’m a big fan of Bruce Lee. He said something wonderful in The Pierre Berton interview in 1971 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uk1lzkH-e4U ) and talks about ‘honestly expressing oneself’ through his passion for martial arts.
Are you honestly expressing your true self in your career choices, your partnership choices, your health choices? Perhaps it’s time during the start of this new season to look at where you are in life and where you want to be.
