Even at 8:00 in the morning, chocolate can pull me into its web! I LOVE CHOCOLATE!
At the end of my life, I am sure I won’t be saying “Oh, I should have eaten more chocolate”. There will be other regrets I am sure because it is part of life….opportunities missed, a little time wasted here and there, perhaps a friendship that has receded, activities or events that you were afraid to engage in, or perhaps lost moments with dear family members. Even though at the time, we may think we have good reason not to partake of a particular activity.
Perhaps, the goal is to start now, wherever you are in your life journey to ferret out what you really don’t want to miss and include those things that you ‘think’ you could or would never do. It isn’t about how all encompassing the item is, rather, it is about your heart to heart with yourself about wanting to be a part of it and why. What pulls you toward it? How will you feel once you have checked it off the conscious brain? Maybe, just maybe, you will want to engage in the activity again. Better yet, maybe it will open a new path on your journey. What have you got to lose? I say: nothing to lose and everything to gain.
“We do not get unlimited chances to have the things we want. Nothing is worse than missing an opportunity that could have changed our life” quote from Marina Boteva: Marina’s Books.
