2067 will come eventually, you’ll be alive to see it most likely.
Brad Pitt will be dead. Denzel will be dead. Eminem. Everyone of your role models. Gone.
And you will be like most people. Looking back. Regretting. Asking yourself what you could’ve done differently or thinking, “what if”.
What if I had turned my ideas into reality? I had so many great ideas.
What if I had loved a little harder and held onto that relationship. She was so amazing.
Regrets, I think, are the biggest reason for our unhappiness as we get older.
The regret of arguing and stressing your mom out too much when you were young. Now she’s gone and you’ll just wish you heard her voice one more time, but you won’t.
The regret of not playing with your dog while he was young and alive. Now he’s old and lazy and you’ll just wish he ran up to you with his toy one more time, but he won’t.
And finally the biggest regret, throwing your life away.
Throwing away the greatest gift you’ve ever gotten.
Because you always thought you had so much time. Until you ran out of it.
I’m not saying become the next Zuckerberg or Musk.
I’m not saying make millions and become popular.
I’m saying that when you look back at your life, don’t regret anything.
Laugh. Dance. Travel. Explore. Love.
Just don’t waste your gift.
