More on Regrets

19
Sep

Last week I wrote about regrets and asked that you share a regret that you have had. Thank you to those that responded. I really appreciate it!!

For the past two weeks, I’ve been doing a little research and asking this question quite a bit. My intent is to compare the answers of those I ask with the comments of those who are in hospice, in the last weeks of their life. Interestingly, the responses are very similar.

In 2012, Bonnie Ware wrote a book about her experience interviewing people in hospice. This was a very revealing time of her life because she learned more than she expected. I just learned this information two weeks ago and lights turned on in my head. That’s why I asked so many people that I encountered what they regret, including you.

I find it fascinating to talk about regrets. People’s emotions go to so many different places when they begin to remember what they have done or didn’t do and how it has impacted their life. It has helped me to understand that life has a lot to do with the choices we make. I also began to understand on a deeper level, the power we each have to live a life without regrets.

What excited me so much about Bonnie Ware’s information is that what she found as the number one regret of the dying is exactly what I teach through my authenticity program. Those who have followed me know that I have been seeking ways to integrate the concepts of authenticity in society. Yet authenticity has so many different definitions and is really misunderstood by most, so it has been an ongoing challenge. In the next few weeks I will be revealing how I am aligning authenticity with regrets and I look forward to your feedback.

If you haven’t sent me an email about your number one regret, please do. Just ‘reply’ to this email and let me know what comes to your mind when you think about what you regret.

Next week I will share more about what I am learning and how it impacts you. I’ll also share how the responses I receive when I ask people what they regret, are the same as those who are in hospice.

What is exciting to me is that there is a remedy to having regrets. No matter what age you are you can remove any regrets you may be holding on to and live out your life without regrets. It’s a realistic proposition that can yield quite a bit of joy.

Let me know your number one regret and next week I will share lots more.

Send email with your regrets to response@normahollis.com .

With Love and Authenticity,

Norma
