All my life I've heard about deathbed regrets. "If you do (not) that, you'll regret it on your deathbed!" Most of the time I don't believe it. I seriously doubt, with all that will be going on, that I am going to regret going to a basketball game in the 11th grade instead of eating dinner with my grandmother. Besides, how many people are actually awake and cognizant when they die? Let alone wailing, "I should have let my cousin have the last banana Popsicle!"
Give me a break. Or don't. I don't care. I'm still not going to live my life governed by fear of what I will worry about in my last moments.
But all of this leads to think of the things that people would never regret, even if they have plenty of time and the inclination.
No one ever regrets on a deathbed:
- Spending money on a trip.
- Over tipping a waitress who looks tired.
- Buying a small gift for a friend just because.
- Leaving a dirty floor to read a good book.
- Leaving a good floor to read a dirty book.
- Letting someone go first in a grocery line.
I could go on, but I'd regret it on my deathbed.
Hmm. I was actually pretty excited about this blog. I've been thinking about it for a few weeks. Now it seems lame. Oh, well. It's what I've got today.
What is something you think no one would regret?
