The buried life...

The other day I read in the newspaper about this lady that had interviewed people on their deathbed, asking them what their biggest regrets were. Most of them fell into 4 categories.
1. Not fulfilled their dreams because the listened to others instead.
2. Wish they hadn't worked so hard so they could have spent more time with the family.
3. Better and close contact with friends.
4. Allowing themselves to be happy and realizing that it is a choice to be happy.

This really got me thinking and today I watched the buried life on TV.....so I just had to make my own list to guide me through this beautiful life!
