A dying man once said, “I only regret not having been a good man.”
That comment left a mark on me.
Since then, I have had a rule, “Don’t do anything I won’t be proud of twenty years from now.”
And I’m not always clear about what’s right and wrong, and I have to trust my instinct. But I think that being aware of my actions; evaluating the positive or negative consequences of what I do before making a decision is something I will be proud of if I am lucky enough to be 90 years old someday.
Today’s lesson: Live to honor the person you will be, and you will not regret the person you were.
