Ask Yourself...


Imagining that I died yesterday, what would I regret? What things would I have done differently? What things am I glad that I did?  If I got another shot at life and was brought back to life today, what would I now have the courage to do that I didn't while I was alive?  And what advice would I give to myself sitting right here in this chair today if after my death, I could come back to this moment?

(Answer In The Comments Below )
From "100 Of The Most Powerful Questions You Can Ask Yourself"

Nothing has the power to completely alter perspective and therefore your thoughts and actions and life quite like a question. Inquiry leads to understanding. The quality of the answers we arrive at, correspond directly to the quality of question we ask. The better the question, the better the answer. One of the most important things to realize about a question is that a person learns far, far more from the process and work involved in answering a question than from the answer itself. This is why spiritual teachers throughout history (including myself) have tended to pose so many questions to their students rather than to simply offer a direct answer. For this reason, I have selected a collection of 100 of the most powerful questions that you can ask yourself.

Make sure to take time to carefully consider each question that is posed in order to meaningfully answer them. And don’t forget to come back to these questions again and again throughout your life, especially whenever you are feeling stuck, because the answers will most likely change over the course of your life and also cause you to change your course in life.

I would regret not living in every moment, not savouring each and every taste of life. 

I would be glad that I loved, I loved life enough to take steps towards authenticity. 

If I got another shot, I would love without reservation, towards myself, others and life.

I would regret that I lived in perpetual fear, that I froze and refused to make any significant choices.

I would have taken more risks, and just tried more things, then have quitted more things. I would have experienced a lot MORE! instead of doing nothing just because I could see the potential worst case scenarios every way I turned.

But I am glad that I have made meaningful connections with other human beings, and have experienced healing in interpersonal traumas. I am proud of myself for being so committed to love and integrity.

If I got another shot starting today, I would finally have the courage to try ALL SORTS OF THINGS I wanted to do. Dance, piano, meeting new people, going out there in the world and presenting myself and my craft, buying things I want to buy, eating expensive foods, being brutally and unapologetically myself... and so much more. What's there to lose even if I make a mistake or turn the wrong way? Life is to experience, not to arrive.

I would advise myself to be the parent I wanted and needed. My inner child did not get the chance to explore and experience new things that interests her because my parents would pin me down as a "smart kid who's path is to study." I want to have an open mind and just let myself explore new areas of interest without any pressure to be successful at it or even to actually enjoy it at all. If I try something and it does not bring me joy, I want to allow myself to quit without making it mean something personal. I need some time to allow myself to explore and experience anything that I want to do.

I would regret worrying and stressing so much. If had the chance to come back to this moment after dying what I would do differently is be gentler with myself and prioritize self love.

I did everything right from the start. But it still didn't work out. .. I said no. To love.. to happiness, to joy, to success. Everything. I couldn't take it (don't no why). But I regret it. I turned away from love.. And I regret it, not just because it was in painful to myself, put because of the paine it caused to everything else around me.

I would order myself, to take myself together to allow the angel to show me the part of beauty in life.

I would regret not acting with bravery when I knew it was the right thing to do, also not showing love, towards myself and others. I would let my new self know that there's nothing to worry about except not trying.

Regret.. not loving deeper.

Do differently... live life more. Stop trying to preserve things as strongly. Get a tattoo.

I don't hold not being courageous enough against anything.

Advice, breath you got this. Swim more. You got this.
