I am trying so hard to eliminate having regrets! I am making lists of people to see and thank before I die; I am culling my bucket list so that what’s left is still doable and that these things matter; my travel list has been reduced to what I consider to be the essential places to see before I die; I am getting my important papers in order.
However, I have found that there are still regrets that I cannot eliminate, and some of these things are breaking my heart:
I will be leaving the love of my life alone
I will never see my grandchildren grow up, marry, and have kids of their own
There may be grandchildren that I will never see
I will never truly know if I am right about the end of life
I will never be able to play the Warsaw Concerto (My Uncle Tony once told me that this piece separated those who could really play piano from the rest)
