“I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.”
“I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.”
“I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.”
“I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.”
“I wish that I had let myself be happier.”
Notice how no one wishes for more stuff or to watch more TV or to spend more hours at work. Seems to me that those who live to an older age don’t even wish for more time but rather they did more with the time they had.
It’s why it is so vital to always be creating something and shipping something. No matter how bad your job is or how hard life gets, you can point to your art and say, “Here, I made this.”
One more day is one more chance to find courage to live the live you always wanted. It’s merely a choice to march to the sound of your own drum.
