This video made me think about how I would finish the sentence: “Before I die…”
What do I want to do? There are too many things… I need to think about this more.
…After having thought about it, the question seems a bit off track for me. Because all those things that come to mind are, in the end, inconsequential. There are many countless things that I have not done and would love to get a chance to do. But if I don’t get to do them, I’d just shrug my shoulders and say oh well.
Everything that I consider to be important (listed below), I’ve tried to practice every single day, albeit not perfectly:
- Learn a little,
- Think a little,
- Dream a little,
- Love a little,
- Play a little, and
- Laugh a lot.
I plan on continuing to do so as long as I am physically and mentally able. If I were to die today, I have no regrets. Because I would have done my very best to live… according to my own heart and my own values and not someone else’s.
