If you weren't able to make this evening's circle, we discussed regrets and how we can learn from them. We used this article as a starting point for discussion: https://bronnieware.com/blog/regrets-of-the-dying/
Tonight we revisited the topic of Regrets, this time with the addition of the Opportunity Principle. "Opportunity breeds regret". What do you think?
This is an article I considered as a starting point for discussion on Regrets. I'll share it here instead. It calls into question Bronnie Ware's article/ book and challenges various points we've discussed. I think it is a very interesting read! It is difficult to read the title with the (unchangeable) text color: The Deathbed Fallacy.
thank you for the Utility of Regret. each week adds to my trove of information to dip into and also gives me a weekly experience of thinking, reflecting. time that has eluded me since I acquired a large family through marriage almost 30 years ago. the lack of time became more intense when Andy suffered a severe stroke 8 years ago.. so much time since the stroke has been spent in survival mode. that is changing. I feel heard (even if only by my self!) and supported each week.
Here is a podcast with Bronnie Ware, author of the Five Regrets of the Dying! Have a listen:
I did miss regrets session but was very sparked by the list. Maggie, is there a way we can continue to discuss regrets from another point of view. like forgiveness, perhaps it deserves more. thank you.
Last night, we discussed Swedish Death Cleaning. Here are the links that sparked our conversation. What do you think?
On Jan.6 we discussed the cost of death. I recently saw a fabulous 90 min. film on PBS' America Reframed series entitled The Invisible Patient. It chronicled the job of a traveling nurse practitioner http://invisiblepatients.com/
Hope I linked this correctly.
