I stumbled upon a Facebook video shared by reset.fit entitled
‘What if your life ended this minute?
Watching it got me thinking like, What if I was not ready and my life ended this minute? What will I do? What will I say before it happens? and Where will I go after that?
Death as they say is inevitable. Everyone will die at some point in their lives, some just left sooner than others. However, no matter how much you anticipate death, it is still scary. We will never be ready for it, emotionally at least.
The video I watched left questions for viewers to answer. Let’s try to answer the questions one by one and contemplate on life.
- What do you love about yourself?
uhm. I love that I can now be myself and do what I really want with my life. I love that I am sensitive of other people. I’d like to think that I can easily symphatize and emphatize with other people. I easily know if they are hurt, offended or genuinely happy by looking at their faces. I love that I care too much and care less whichever is necessary.
2. Do you have any regrets about your life?
I would like to say I don’t, but truth is, I have.
I regret not taking chances with people, relationships. I regret not trusting the right people when I was younger. I built my walls so high no one could come close. I was so afraid to get hurt that I always stayed on my comfort zone. Because of that, I ended up trusting the wrong people and let the right people go.
But even if I regret some decisions I made, I am still thankful for it. It made me wiser, it made me realize what works and what doesn’t. It made me stronger and taught me life lessons based on first hand experiences.
3. If you were given one more chance, what would you do?
I could not turn back time and re-do or undo things. What I will do is make the most of it. Learn from the past experiences and make sure not to repeat the same mistakes twice. I will love until I have nothing to give. I will appreciate even the smallest things and live life not thinking about what ifs and what could be’s more than the experiences it may bring me.
I will live everyday as a fresh start and do the things that I love. I will try new things, conquer my fears and I will love life even more!
How about you? Are you brave enough to answer those three (3) questions?
