What do you want to leave behind when you die? What will you regret not doing, not saying at the before your life is over?
How do we create a 'life well-lived'? These are all questions I have as I age and move closer to death.
Years ago I first heard the phrase 'living a life of no regret'. At that time, in my 40's, it had an impact but not a huge one. At 50 I went into the Peace Corps and one experience while traveling from Belize to Honduras really helped me understand this statement. In a boat in the middle of the Bay of Honduras I was pretty sure we were not going to make it to safety in the middle of the night. I thought then: well, if this is IT, the end, what regrets do I have?
We had hours in the dark and stormy sea to sit and hope for help. In those hours the 'regret' question kept coming up and I realized that before I left the United States and home, I had done a lot of repair work with those I felt I had wronged. Or hurt. Or ignored. That repair work was painful but left me, on that night, feeling clear that I did not have any major regrets. That if our boat sank in the middle of the Bay, although I did not want to die, I would not die with regrets.
So what do you regret? If you were told tomorrow you have a year to live, a month to live, weeks to live...what would you do? Where would you start? I can help if you call/text 360-432-1236.
I am a catalyst for others, helping people continue, over their entire life span - preconception,
conception in the womb and after - to grow, learn, heal so that each person can live their deepest longings. This is my passion.
