Welcome back to Day 4 of Healthy Mind Power Week. 7 days of short inspirational reads to get your day (and month) off to a great start! Today, let’s focus on the concept of regret.
“Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.” -Pablo Picasso
We take for granted that we have time to get things done over the course of our lives. We prioritise our ‘Today’ with work and trying to get ahead in life. Often we put off a social engagement or replying to a text from a friend because we don’t have time. We say, I’ll start that diet, or exercise program tomorrow. I’ll start that course next year. Theres always an excuse, and extremely valid reasons for you delaying things. There’s always next time.
However, we aren’t actually guaranteed tomorrow. We should plan our long term goals based on a long, healthy life but if today were your final day on Earth, what would you do differently? I’m not asking you to take the day off work and go out and tick all the items off your bucket list. I am asking you to consider what is truly important to you.
Today I challenge you to do something or resolve a matter that, if today was your final day, you would regret not doing. Whether it’s Facetimeing a friend you have been putting off, resolving an argument with a loved one, sending a letter, taking a little extra time for yourself, calling your parents, spending ten minutes more with your children, giving out a few extra hugs or simply remembering to tell someone you love them.
