In our race against time to make things better for the future we often ignore the smaller things that make our lives beautiful. We’d all like to live a life with no regrets yet we let the most beautiful people and experiences slip through our fingers. Here is a list of top things you will regret when you grow old:
Not learning a new language.
You’ll kick yourself when you realize you took three years to learn a language in high school and remember none of it.
Failing to make physical fitness a priority.
Too many of us spend the physical peak of our lives on the couch. When you hit 40, 50, 60, and beyond, you’ll dream of what you could have done.
Not traveling when you had the chance.
As you grow old, travelling becomes much harder, especially if you have a family to take care of. Your body will be weaker without the energy to adventure. Think of climbing mountains, cliff dives and much more.
Staying in a terrible job.
There will be bills to clear. Unless you do something to improve the situation, you might wake up one day and realize you wasted 40 years in an awful job.
Not spending adequate time with loved ones
Our time with our loved ones is finite. Make it count. Appreciate it every time you are near the people that matter the most to you.
Not Expanding your Social Network
Networking may seem like a wastage of time when you’re younger, but later on it becomes clear that it’s how so many jobs are won.
Failure to Volunteer
There is no better feeling than the feeling of contentment when you help somebody to make the world a better place, without expecting anything in return.
The sooner we rid ourselves of the grudges, the better for us. What’s the point of re-living the anger over and over?
Being afraid to try things
Looking back, you’ll think, What was I so afraid of?
Staying in a bad relationship
No one who ever gets out of a bad relationship looks back without wishing they made the move sooner.
Caring too much about what other people think
In 20 years, you won’t really care about any of those people you once worried so much about.
Not playing with your kids adequately
When you’re old, you’ll realize your kids went from wanting to play with you to wanting you out of their room in the blink of an eye.
Ignoring your parent’s advice
You don’t want to hear it when you’re young, but the infuriating truth is that most of what your parents say about life is true.
