Your Life


This week I had a wonderful and meaningful conversation with a client working in palliative care focused on improving the quality of life of patients with serious or life ending illnesses by providing emotional support and treating the symptoms.

I learned people develop and grow enormously when faced with their own mortality.  Changes are made overnight. Many emotions are expressed at different times.  There is anger, denial, bitterness, fear, and remorse.  Finally, they reach acceptance of their final days. Common threads run through with many regrets.  Here are the comments from some patients.

1).  I wish I had lived a life true to myself. 

2).  I wish I had not worked so hard and so long.

3).  I wish I had expressed my real and true feelings.

4).  I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.

5).  I wish I had chosen to be happier.

Sometime soon, take a moment to reflect and think about these comments. Make a decision to design your Legacy.
