What Would Your Life Be Like With No Regrets?

Let me ask you, if your life ended tomorrow what would you regret not doing? What would you regret not saying?

We all have things we wish we would have done at some point in our life. We all have wished to be something more. To have done something more.

And that’s the problem, we wish.

We wish for the things that never came easy to us. We wish for life to have handed us the things we longed for. We wish and never receive because we are not proactive. We do not put in enough effort to make our desires a reality.

A beautiful life does not come with no cost. A meaningful life does not come with no pain. Your life is designed and built with all you have endured. It is built with your accomplishments, with your failures, and with your fears. Your life is the outcome of your willingness to meet vulnerability with dedication.

Your life is the sum of the experiences you let yourself experience.

If tomorrow was the end, the things you are going to regret are the things that you never let yourself do. The things you are going to regret are the words you never let yourself say. The things you are going to regret are going to be the places you never let yourself go to.

You will regret not allowing yourself to be worthy of living the life you have always pictured.

You will regret not seizing every opportunity life threw at you.

You will regret living with regrets.

So, when tomorrow comes, start everything you have said you would have started and make a plan to conquer every evil that resides in your head, because you are the single biggest influence in your life, and whether you flounder or flourish is in your hands.
