Top Five Regrets By Bronnie Ware

For many years I worked in palliative care. My patients were those who had gone home to die. Some incredibly special times were shared. I was with them for the last three to twelve weeks of their lives.
People grow a lot when they are faced with their own mortality. I learned never to underestimate someone's capacity for growth. Some changes were phenomenal. Each experienced a variety of emotions, as expected, denial, fear, anger, remorse, more denial and eventually acceptance. Every single patient found their peace before they departed though, every one of them.
When questioned about any regrets they had or anything they would do differently, common themes surfaced again and again. Here are the most common five:


1. I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me


This was the most common regret of all. When people realize that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people have had not honored even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made.
It is very important to try and honor at least some of your dreams along the way. From the moment that you lose your health, it is too late. Health brings a freedom very few realize, until they no longer have it.

2. I wish I didn't work so hard


This came from every male patient that I nursed. They missed their children's youth and their partner's companionship. Women also spoke of this regret. But as most were from an older generation, many of the female patients had not been breadwinners. All of the men I nursed deeply regretted spending so much of their lives on the treadmill of a work existence.
By simplifying your lifestyle and making conscious choices along the way, it is possible to not need the income that you think you do. And by creating more space in your life, you become happier and more open to new opportunities, ones more suited to your new lifestyle.

3. I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings


Many people suppressed their feelings in order to keep peace with others. As a result, they settled for a mediocre existence and never became who they were truly capable of becoming. Many developed illnesses relating to the bitterness and resentment they carried as a result.
We cannot control the reactions of others. However, although people may initially react when you change the way you are by speaking honestly, in the end it raises the relationship to a whole new and healthier level. Either that or it releases the unhealthy relationship from your life. Either way, you win.

4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends


Often they would not truly realize the full benefits of old friends until their dying weeks and it was not always possible to track them down. Many had become so caught up in their own lives that they had let golden friendships slip by over the years. There were many deep regrets about not giving friendships the time and effort that they deserved. Everyone misses their friends when they are dying.
It is common for anyone in a busy lifestyle to let friendships slip. But when you are faced with your approaching death, the physical details of life fall away. People do want to get their financial affairs in order if possible. But it is not money or status that holds the true importance for them. They want to get things in order more for the benefit of those they love. Usually though, they are too ill and weary to ever manage this task. It is all comes down to love and relationships in the end. That is all that remains in the final weeks, love and relationships.

5. I wish that I had let myself be happier


This is a surprisingly common one. Many did not realize until the end that happiness is a choice. They had stayed stuck in old patterns and habits. The so-called 'comfort' of familiarity overflowed into their emotions, as well as their physical lives. Fear of change had them pretending to others, and to their selves, that they were content. When deep within, they longed to laugh properly and have silliness in their life again.
When you are on your deathbed, what others think of you is a long way from your mind. How wonderful to be able to let go and smile again, long before you are dying. Life is a choice. It is YOUR life. Choose consciously, choose wisely, choose honestly. Choose happiness.

Training providers being scammed

Posted on April 29, 2014 at 12:02 11 Comments

Corporate Wise recently reported an incident where a scam artist used their accreditation information and brand name to perform training. Training providers are now being warned to watch out for similar suspicious behaviour. This is their story:

On Thursday of last week our Durban office was contacted by a company asking if we had an employee working for us in Cape Town. It turns out that a gentlemen by the name of Vusi, working as a broker for HA Group, had taken our…

Everybody has experienced the stress of preparing for an interview. Likewise meeting a potential partner can be extremely intimidating. If you think about it the interview process is very much like the journey of embarking on a new relationship. Here are some interesting comparisons:

Sourcing the right training programme for your employees from a trustworthy training provider is not an easy task. The additional burden of finding cost effective courses that will give a return on investment can leave HR practitioners at a loss.

Companies who don’t have the necessary human resources experience are in danger of engaging with bogus training providers or participating in subpar training programmes.

Opportunities for senior citizens not a priority

Posted on February 4, 2014 at 11:30 15 Comments

I recently wrote an article on whether government’s plan to produce 30 000 artisans by 2030 is a plausible one.

According to the Ekurhuleni Skills and Training Center SA can reach this target if government provides development opportunities for older semi-skilled workers as well as young people.

This comment got me thinking about the current focus on youth development, youth employment, youth subsidies.

No-one doubts that investing in our young…

Sometimes it's just the words one needs to hear at a given time that can spur one on to achieve greater things - or move one closer to an intention. It's people like you who take the time to post clips, information etc that provide the catalyst someone is needing - so thanks once again!

God Bless you Cindy

It's good to see that the Lord is with us. I am looking forward to deepening my learner's awareness of the Living God by not only study but more importantly, that personal relationship with their Creator. I will be Assessing and Moderating full Qulaifications in Theology, Ministry as well as Pastoral Counselling which is my area of extertise. For the moment, I have also been given the FETC: Youth Developmentin order to assess, as I worked and taught Religion in rural schools before even since my student days 1997.
