On our journey of life, we learn that there are infinite roads to travel. Every choice we make absolute impacts are lives. Even the choice to not make a choice strongly impacts our lives. The moment you step out the house; the time at which you call someone back; whether or not you decide to give a friend or stranger a gift. For every action there's a reaction. In the stream of this ocean of decision, are the decisions that we do not make. Whether out of doubt, fear, discomfort, lack of confidence. These are the decisions that lead to the unfortunate world of shoulda, coulda, wouldas, or furthermore regrets. What would've happened if I did this differently? or went after that dream? or tried a little harder? or had that conversation. Its a powerful state to be aware of the desires we have in our hearts and to act on them, so that we do not live life full of regrets. Now of course, hindsight is 20/20 and we can always look back and think what if because at every moment the assignment is really to do your best. Do your best and live your best life in whatever way that means to you. Often times "Life" gets in the way; you know bills, family support, pride of maintaining (not) relationships, and just doing what has to be done. When we think of this, then it even becomes, how do you find the balance? I realize that what feels like harmony in my life, is different from your life and that is ok. This idea of "Balance" will never in fully exists, but one can be as conscious as always to prioritize what is important and maintain other compartments in your life that don't far too off of the shelf. Balance to me, is the handeling of life in a way in which I am growing yet at peace. I am pushing myself, and allowing my dreams to come true but also understanding the foundation of those dreams to be my spirituality and purpose; while understanding the why for dreams is to empower people and set up a more than comfortable current lifestyle for my family and build inter generational wealth.
I pledge to not live with any regrets. This idea of regrets is why I founded the BE Experience. An idea, a vision, a passion that I have been sitting on since January 10, 2010 in New York City, while I was in grad school. It was finally the time to begin, so I wouldn't keep saying to my family and friends " I'm going to do so and so; I'm working on so and so." I rather attempt a couple of times and feel I made my peace with a vision or dream, then to not. In my opinion, regrets happen when life is lived with extremes, and we ignore what seems to not fit for whatever reason. How do you live an unregrettable life? First start with your dreams and passions. Take 3 minutes in silence and write down all that you would do if money, time, age, family or any other boundaries you've given yourself, didn't exist. Secondly, what type of person do you want to be (or know you are and have been hiding). Take 1 minute and list those characteristics. Thirdly, take 2 mins, and think of the freedoms you desire: time, travel, adventures, etc. that you would act upon IF the limitations in your mind didn't exist. Step 4...start going after, and bringing into manifestation each and every one of those things. Why? If its in your heart, there is NO reason, that you should take it to the grave. Do you really want to know how to love an unregrettable life?
Today I read an amazing article entitled: Nurse Discusses 5 Regrets People Tell Her Before They Die
The Regrets are as follows:
1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me. This was the most common regret of all.
2. I wish I didn’t work so hard.
3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.
