10 regrets on my death bed that I WOULDN’T have’!

A friend on Twitter inspired me to write this today. While I was reading an article posted by him, which was ‘The 5 regrets on the death bed’, and while I thought of it, I realized that for my part, there are most likely ‘10 regrets on my death bed that I WOULDN’T have’!

1. Standing up for what I have believed in, irrespective of what anybody has had to say.

2. Keeping close, the people who matter most to me.

3. Having lived the life I have wanted and not what others wanted to see from mine.

4. Meeting most people I have idolized and wished for, however far-fetched the thought might have ‘seemed’.

5. Always being a dreamer and an optimist, not a pragmatist or a cynic.

6. Being in love.

7. Forgiving and moving on from the mistakes some have made.

8. Giving myself a second chance.

9. Being determined with every single fiber and getting what I really wanted, as impossible as it seemed.

Last of all,

10. Being myself.

I have made quite a few foes in the bargain, I know that with certainty, but those who expect me to live by their perceptions and expectations aren’t really ‘friends’ to begin with, so no qualms. I honestly love my life and love everything that has come with it, making me who I am today. I’d rather be disliked for what I am, than liked for what I’m not.

I really hope a lot of others too would know sometime what they will NOT regret on their deathbeds than what they would.

Hope is like a rainbow that shows you different hues of the facets of life; It brings you joy, it brings you love, it brings you everything your heart desires. Hope is like the wind, it blows in your face every single day, until you choose to ignore it, for when you do, there is nothing to live for, look forward to and nothing left to prove. So keep hope alive in your heart and nobody can tell you otherwise; it was a wise man that once said, 'with hope anything can survive!'
