Mark Twain once said “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.”
We hear people lament their lost loves, lost health and lost opportunities all the time. When we’re young, we feel we have all the time in the world to make the right choices, go after our goals and find our true purpose in life. By the time we become old; we will have accomplished some of those aims and missed out on others. That’s normal, because life is finite. And of course, what’s important to us at age 26 is totally different to what matters at 56.
Each life stage brings new challenges, new triumphs and new disappointments. Some of us seem to accumulate a formidable load of regrets by our 30s, while others manage to reach their last years of life and say “I wouldn’t have done anything differently – that was a full life and I’m satisfied.”
We’re all different in our expectations of ourselves and the world we live in. At the end of life, regret is useless – it’s a negative emotion that accomplishes nothing. But when we’re younger, regret has some use: it can be a prod that pushes us to live life as we wish, not as we must.
Some of us regret that we didn’t live life the way we want too, we didn’t travel abroad more often, we wish we didn’t work so hard, etc etc.
We all have some small regrets even at the age of 30 or 40. Perhaps the biggest mistake we all make is saying “I’ll start tomorrow”. The time to start making the right choices for your life isn’t tomorrow – it’s right now, because tomorrow is never guaranteed.
