“You only have one life and if you’re not doing what you love, what’s the point?” – Hilary Swank
I’m merely in my 20ties and there are so many things that I haven’t done so far.
I am not afraid to die and I understand that death is the main component of life. I know I’ll be ready to die when my moment comes. It would just suck if that moment was tomorrow.
There are so many things I haven’t done nor tried and I realize it now.
If I died tomorrow, I would have regretted not traveling more.
I’d be so mad at myself because I was too lazy to fill out the application for one month travel by train throughout Europe.
I’d regret not traveling to every single country of the States when I know I could.
There are so many cultures to be explored, so many amazing places to be visited and I didn’t even scratch the surface. Nope, sorry, I can’t die tomorrow.
If I died tomorrow, I would have regret worrying too much.
I keep stressing myself over some irrelevant things. About the relevant as well, but still…
I am unable to predict the outcome of any situation and for some reason, I worry so much as if it’s gonna change anything. I know it won’t, but I still do it.
I constantly worry if I am going to have enough money, I worry what others might think of me, if I am going to be successful and the list is just never ending.
I know I shouldn’t. It doesn’t change anything. It’d be much wiser to accept each event as it comes and deal with it in time. This is exactly what I am going to do if I get to live tomorrow as well.
If I died tomorrow, I would have regretted being unable to say ‘no’.
So far, I have kept on making promises that I haven’t wanted to keep, but felt obliged to do because I gave my word.
I’m cutting this out from tomorrow.
No more saying ‘yes’ to the things I really want to say ‘no’ to. It’s my day, it’s my time and I’ll spend it doing things I love, which I enjoy and that make me grow.
I don’t care if I am going to be judged or perceived as a mean person that only takes care of herself. Because that’s just what I am going to be doing from now on.
I’ll take care of other people’s feelings some other time, but not today, and not tomorrow. I don’t want to regret this later. It’s time to be selfish for a change.
If I died tomorrow, I would have regretted all my fears.
When you are young, there is so much that is unknown and inexperienced. And the most frequent advice I got in my life was ‘take care of yourself’—which is just bollocks!
I don’t want to constantly live in fear ‘something bad’ might happen.
“What if I do this and I get fired? What if I miss my due and I don’t pass my test? What if he is way out of my league? What if he is cheating on me?” and all the other fears that just keep on popping up.
I want to take on bigger challenges. I want to do something that others thought I was incapable of.
I want to defeat my fear of heights with the bungee jump.
I want to love and be heartbroken, and then cry and hurt and learn to love and then love all over again!
I don’t want to take care of myself. I want to live!
I want to read as many books as I can while I travel with some stranger that I met on the journey I started with only one backpack and a camera. I really do desire all these things.
I want to live and to love the fullest!
If I died tomorrow, I would have regretted not telling people how much they mean to me.
What if I never get to see the people I love? What if today was the last chance to speak to them, but I was just too tired or lazy and I missed it?
How would they remember me? What would be their last memory of me?
Would they enjoy remembering me or would I be a painful memory?
I want them to know how much they mean to me and how grateful and blessed I am to have them in my life.
And this is going to change.
I don’t want to observe my life from above and feel sad because of how I lived.
