I Worked Too Hard

This is a five-part series based on The Top Five Regrets of the Dying, Bronnie Ware

All of our lives we are taught that hard work is a good thing, and we will be so proud of ourselves if we give our best effort, if we’re the first one in and the last one out, and if we give 110% effort. 

And when it’s all over, look what you sometimes have. 


You missed a few games and band concerts of your budding star,
          but you gave it your all at the office.

You missed a few anniversary dinners,
          but you gave it your all at the office.

Your health is failing from all those long hours, long flights and long weekends,
          but you gave it your all at the office.

And on and on …

Regret #2 is this:
I wish I hadn't worked so hard.

From today forward, this I resolve:

To see more sunsets
To see more sunrises
To take more vacation time
To eat more ice cream
To appreciate the small moments
To love and express love at every opportunity

Life is a fleeting thing.  We have these few years on earth, and then …

Live your life and reach your end with abundant energy, great memories, exceptional health and no regrets.
