Did I tell you about the day I was told I was terminal?

A few years ago when I was undergoing my treatment and the prognosis was serious, I was consumed by thoughts of death.  Any celebrity I saw in the media that passed away with cancer I felt this could be me.  I also realized that I had a scary view on what happened at death which was big black nothingness.A very wise friend who is also the Coach on the Focus On Living School program said to me ” don’t you realize we are all terminal”.  I felt initially shocked how dare she tell me I was going to die.  It began to sink in, at some time in my life I would die.I decided to do some reading to form a view of what happened after death so that I felt more comfortable.  Often we fear what we do not understand.  I read different spiritual texts and found that I resonated with  we are all energy and our energy lives on, after our body dies.  By forming a positive view on what happens after death it helped me to stop worrying about dying anymore.

The other key factor which stopped me worrying completely was  to say, lets start living my life like it is a count down and making sure that I do the things that make me happy every day.   Bronnie Ware  wrote a must read book called “ The 5 Top Regrets of the Dying”.  She tells the stories of people she had nursed in palliative care and on their death bed what they said were their regrets.  I found the book extremely contemplative because it forced me to look at how I was living my life and was it  one with no regrets.   Fortunately with that onerous diagnosis  in 2010  I have been making changes to my life so I don’t have any regrets.   It is a working progress.  For me it began with chucking in a job that I  did not like and now doing something that is meaningful with Focus on Living.  Spending more time hanging out with my family.   Being grateful for small things and spending time doing things that makes me happy.   I still need to work on keeping in touch with friends more.   I feel so lucky that I have had an opportunity to  make changes to my life so it will be one with no regrets.

I would love to hear what you are working on to have a life with no regrets?

Love, BrigetteXX

  3. First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a
    quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head
    prior to writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my
    thoughts in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing but
    it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
