Hi there! So I have not been around lately.
I’ve been living in a remoted area (the connection at my home and office are really poor).
My friend even said that I was lived in a cave. The connection around my cubicle was even worse, I had to go to my colleague’s cubicle to get a connection. Plus, it was a chance for me to play around at office hour. Hehe…
Considering my home country is not as advanced as previous one. I’m fine with it.
So how’s life doing?
I have a great time here at my hometown. It is not as busy as previous one and I have A LOT of quality time with family and friends. It is really great, though I am not getting enough pocket money.
Beside a great quality time, I really adore the hardship to get something. Guess I like to be hard on myself. It is a good and a bad thing though.
The good thing is you will appreciate your time and people around you more than ever. Bad thing is you have missed some chances in your life.
Well, there are always good and bad things in one aspect.
Now I’m longing for another aspect in my life. I’m waiting for a new adventure.
I’m welcoming you, Life! Hope I can meet the new you soon 😊
Heart to heart moment with family
Talking about life and how society works
What an unfair world but thanks Lord for the lovely people
1. 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 of all. When people realize that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people have had not honored even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made.
It is very important to try and honor at least some of your dreams along the way.
From the moment that you lose your health, it is too late. Health brings a freedom very few realize, until they no longer have it.
2. I wish I didn’t work so hard - This came from every male patient that I nursed. They missed their children’s youth and their partner’s companionship.
Women also spoke of this regret. But as most were from an older generation, many of the female patients had not been breadwinners. All of the men I nursed deeply regretted spending so much of their lives on the treadmill of a work existence.
By simplifying your lifestyle and making conscious choices along the way, it is possible to not need the income that you think you do. And by creating more space in your life, you become happier and more open to new opportunities, ones more suited to your new lifestyle.
3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings - Many people suppressed their feelings in order to keep peace with others. Many developed illnesses relating to the bitterness and resentment they carried as a result.
As a result, they settled for a mediocre existence and never became who they were truly capable of becoming.
We cannot control the reactions of others. However, although people may initially react when you change the way you are by speaking honestly, in the end it raises the relationship to a whole new and healthier level. Either that or it releases the unhealthy relationship from your life. Either way, you win.
4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends - Often they would not truly realize the full benefits of old friends until their dying weeks and 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 slip by over the years. There were many deep regrets about not giving friendships the time and effort that they deserved. Everyone misses their friends when they are dying.
It is common for anyone in a busy lifestyle to let friendships slip. But when you are faced with your approaching death, the physical details of life fall away. People do want to get their financial affairs in order if possible. But it is not money or status that holds the true importance for them. They want to get things in order more for the benefit of those they love. Usually though, they are too ill and weary to ever manage this task. It is all comes down to love and relationships in the end. That is all that remains in the final weeks, love and relationships.
5. I wish that I had let myself be happier
This is a surprisingly common one.
Many did not realize until the end that happiness is a choice.
They had stayed stuck in old patterns and habits. The so-called ‘comfort’ of familiarity overflowed into their emotions, as well as their physical lives. Fear of change had them pretending to others, and to their selves, that they were content. When deep within, they longed to laugh properly and have silliness in their life again.
When you are on your deathbed, what others think of you is a long way from your mind. How wonderful to be able to let go and smile again, long before you are dying.
Life is a choice. It is YOUR life. Choose consciously, choose wisely, choose honestly. Choose happiness.
Do not envy. Just work harder! Read from here.
"There will always be someone who is prettier than you and someone not as pretty. There will always be someone smarter than you and someone not as smart. Whatever it is, there will always be someone with more and someone with less, so there’s point in even paying attention to what other people have."
I’m not rich! I don’t have a car! I can’t drive! I can’t swim! (Need to work hard on this!) I don’t have flat stomach like you. If you point out my good point(s), I’m far down there than you. And you envy me? That’s unreasonable because you have more than me. When I only had one fortune, you showed this unhappy expression.
We never know how hard one life is. To be deceived, to be hated, to be back stabbed, to be betrayed, then you need to put yourself together by working really hard, to be loved, to be trusted, to be or not to be. It’s your choice.
Life is ugly enough… Let’s make it more beautiful!
Well, I just want to live my life and I’m still regarding you as a good friend. Friend…
