This is the last day of my 30 day blog series, THANK YOU for following along. Mad love to you all!
90% of people have some sort of regret at the end of life. I don't want to be in that 90%, do you? There are things that I will never do and I'm okay with that. But there are things I MUST do before my death: bike solo across NZ, get married, be a mom, build a house for my family (with my own two hand from the ground up), bring empowerment to women, have a successful business, spin prayer wheels in the Himalayas, visit the Sahara Desert and much more. Don't forget the daily MUSTS: meditate, enjoy nature, be kind and loving to myself and others, 3 gratefuls, live life, love life!
But how do we know what we want? How do we prevent regrets at the end of life??
When ocean rower Roz Savage, felt stuck in her corporate life longing for something else she did an exercise. She wrote two versions of her own obituary: one if she continued her current life, the other about a "fantasy" version of her really living life. After looking at both obituaries Roz realized that if she didn't make some changes she would be disappointed with her life, she'd have regrets. Years later, Roz went from feeling stuck in corporate life to living HER life. She became the first women to row solo across the Atlantic, Pacific, and India Oceans! Now, I'm not saying this exercise is going to make you go row oceans but if it helped to inspire Roz to change from a stuck life to her life, imagine what it could do for you. Try it!
The next exercise is so simple yet soooooooo hard!!! Make a (bucket) list or list of all the things you want to do in life, start small (or easy) and gradually move to bigger things. Then DO IT!!!!! Stop making excuses and mark things off this list! There will never be enough money! There will never be a better time! You will wake up one day realizing that 18 years have passed and you still don't have enough money or the time!! You must MAKE it HAPPEN!!! When Robyn Davidson walked 1700 miles solo across the Australian desert she said the most difficult step was the first one!!! So DO IT!!! No Regrets!!
