Do you live your life with regrets?

Do you wish you could go back into the past and change things? Living your life with regrets is like having an unsightly mole on your cheek and doing nothing about it. It’s not that difficult to have removed. But you don’t do it.  You put it off. You stop looking in the mirror. You are afraid to take chances and so you become staid and suddenly you are in your sixties and realize that life has passed you by and that you have not really lived. How many times are you going to miss good opportunities to be the person you really want to be?

Saying yes to life
This morning I got up late and watched the film ‘The Bucket List’ with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson. I had seen it before years ago but this time it held more meaning. I was watching two veteran actors; one known for his flamboyant antics and the other known for ‘Driving Miss Daisy’. The film for those of you who do not know is about two guys who get diagnosed with a terminal disease and decide to have a huge romp before they die. Morgan who is more reserved than the raucous Nicholson decides to jump out of an airplane with him and they travel around the world doing everything they had wanted to do before but did not. 

Skipper your own boat
·         Don’t sit in a corner and wait for life to come to you. Investigate. Explore. Live.
·         Take time to figure out who you are.
·         Be the master of your own domain.
·         Take life by the horns and make your mark.
·         Don’t be afraid to take risks.
·         Don’t wait for others to define you.
·         Make your own bucket list and achieve your dreams.
·         Think YOU CAN and live your dream. If Obama can, you can too.
·         Change your thoughts if it is better for you and works in your favor.
·         Live life to the fullest and use every hour doing something worthwhile.
·         Never say it’s too late to change something; that’s a defeatist attitude.
·         Be yourself and don’t change for anyone. Don’t let someone else define who you are.
