  • Australian nurse.

  • Brawny Wear spent several years caring for patients who had less than three months to live.

  • She recorded their stories and shared their thoughts about life in her book, The Top Five Regrets of the Dying.

  • I encourage you to take these most common regrets of the dying and make sure you don't look back with same feelings.

  • The five most common regrets of the dying were Number one.

  • I wish I'd had the courage to live a life True to myself, Not the life others expected of me.

  • Number two.

  • I wish I hadn't worked so hard.

  • Number three.

  • I wish I had the courage to express my feelings.

  • Number four.

  • I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends and number five.

  • I wish I had let myself be happier.

  • Notice that none of these common regrets revolve around money or work.

  • Strange how no one said.

  • I wish I worked Mawr at the office, or G.

  • I wish I had more cash to take with me.

  • That doesn't mean you shouldn't work hard or make money.

  • You should, and you should do it in a way that is in alignment with your purpose.

  • But you should never prioritize money or work over things that truly matter.

  • Number one.

  • I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, Not the life others expected of me.

  • This was the most common regret off all of these people lying on their deathbed.

  • How powerful is that?

  • Such a powerful lesson you should live with and remind yourself of every day.

  • Be yourself.

  • Follow your own path.

  • Do what you know is right for you.

  • There is nothing more important.

  • Not just for you, but for everyone.

  • You love everyone who was influenced by your behavior.

  • When these patients realized that life was almost over, they had the ability toe look back with clarity.

  • Unfortunately, many of these people saw a life with dreams left unfulfilled because they settled for life.

  • Others expected of them.

  • Not one they truly wanted to live.

  • Brawny wear said most people had not honored even half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made or not made.

  • Number two.

  • I wish I hadn't worked so hard.

  • Every single male patient had this regret.

  • These men say they had missed out on so much in their relationships and friendships because they simply worked too much.

  • Everyone has to work.

  • We all need money to get by, and we all deserve an abundant life.

  • To do that, you must work, but again learn to prioritize what is really important, not just with your time but with your energy as well.

  • Give the majority of your energy to those you love and the things you love doing.

  • Choose work.

  • You love work that is more in line with your purpose.

  • Number three.

  • I wish I had the courage to express my feelings.

  • As the author said, many people suppressed their feelings in order to keep peace with others.

  • As a result, they settled for a mediocre existence and never became who they truly were capable of becoming.

  • It's so sad to hear this and know how common it is, but it is empowering to know that it does not have to be.

  • You break the cycle of this toxic pattern, be the influence that changes this in your bloodline, express who you truly are with no apologies.

  • Be yourself 100% never afraid to express your feelings growing and evolving into more of an amazing human being every day.

  • Number four.

  • I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends, three author said.

  • Often they would not truly realize the full benefits of old friends until their dying weeks on.

  • It was not always possible to track them down.

  • Many had become so caught up in their own lives that they had let golden friendships slipped by over the years.

  • It's easy to take friends family on loved ones for granted, especially those you know will always be there for you.

  • But take a moment to think about.

  • If you lost one of them, would you wish you spent more time with them?

  • As Stephen Levin said, If you're going to die soon and had Onley one phone call to make, who would you call and what would you say and why are you waiting?

  • Maybe it's time to make a few calls.

  • Number five.

  • I wish I had let myself be happier, the author said.

  • Many did not realize unto the end that happiness is a choice.

  • They stayed stuck in old patterns and habits.

  • The comfort of familiarity flowed into their emotions, Azaz well as their physical lives never forget those words.

  • Happiness is a choice.

  • Happiness is a choice.

  • You can never choose what circumstances show up in your life.

  • But you always choose how you respond.

  • Choose to be happy.

  • Choose by making happy choices.

  • Choose daily habits that put you in a positive state.

  • Choose books, TV, friends that make you feel good and help you see the good in others.

  • No one ended up on their deathbed saying they wish they hadn't been so happy.

  • Live fully playfully fun.

  • Happy, light hearted stories like these shouldn't be sad or scary.

  • They should serve to inspire you to inspire you to create the changes you need in your life.

  • Life is short.

  • No one knows how long they have left on this earth.

  • Make the most of each and every day.

  • So you get to the end without any regrets.

  • Mhm, mhm.
