One of my Ponders group sent me this a while back and it’s a real show stopper…

The 5 Top Regrets of the Dying

1. I wish I had courageously lived a life true to myself and not one that others expected of me.

3. If only I had gained courage to express how I felt.

4. I wish I had remained in touch with my friends

5. If only I had allowed happiness into my life

    • Hi Sandy, I’m glad you found it inspiring. You can share on Facebook by copying and pasting the url web address – I’m not sure how to add the FB app to the blog posts here. 🙂
