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.

2. I wish I had not spent all my life working

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

Take the opportunity today to write a list of things that you are afraid of.


For some this will be a short list and others it will be longer than it should. I for one am afraid of dying before I achieve a lot more than I have right now for instance. But give it some real thought, take a bit of time over it and write down everything that comes to mind.

It may surprise you just how long or short it actually is.

It’s funny how identifying our fears can actually diminish them. Once your list is complete, read it a few times. Notice how you feel about each item. You may feel some are silly, others irrelevant.

This execise in itself may spur you on to tackle some of those fears, some of which you may only think you have. We define ourselves in many ways and one way is through our fears – I’m afraid of heights, or spiders, or flying, or open spaces etc. Thing is, you may have been afraid once but that doesn’t necessarily mean you still are.

Find out which it is today.
