Dying with regrets

sorabji.com: What are you afraid of?: Dying with regrets

By Penitent on Wednesday, November 18, 1998 - 12:20 pm:

    Here's a horror story: Imagine lying on your deathbed at age 80, and looking back on a life spent behind a desk, pushing paper, managing someone else's "business processes" so that they can spend their days strolling the greens, smoking Cuban cigars, and having frequent belly laughs about your meager compensation for a life of empty, soul-sucking futility.

    Imagine looking back on a youth filled with limitless possibilities; on a time when no effort or responsibility was too great to keep you from shrugging off convention and finding something unique to look back on. Imagine having traded all that in for years of security and routine.

    It's too late to even kill yourself; the damage is already done.

    The horror! The horror...

    then take a leap...live every day like its your last... speak your mind...do things that make *you* happy...

    it took the death of one of my closest friends to make me feel alive
