Top five regrets of the dying

It is a few weeks old but this piece in the Guardian — Top five regrets of the dying — is one of those articles that are always worth returning to.

The article, based on a book of the same name by an Australian palliative care nurse, Bronnie Ware, simply summarises the insights that have struck closest to home among people who know they are facing their last days.

As we rush through the hurly-burly of life, we lose sight too easily of the big picture amid the distracting demands of the daily round. It is important to pause from time to time. This simple article helps us to do that.
