I was recently talking to an old man I met on a bus and he was quite serious about telling me to use my youth wisely.
He said, if he could have only one wish it would be to go back to his 20's with what he knows now. He would take better care of his body. He would travel the world when he was young instead of waiting to do it after retirement, even if it wasn't finantially responsable. He pretty much said that he wishes he could have lived a more adventurous life and have stories worth telling as an elder.
This hit me so hard that I had to make an effort to not cry as he was talking. He was so distant as he talked. I thought maybe he was crazy, but rather he just regretted wasting his life.
I dont know about anyone elce on here but the quote "It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live" by Marcus Aurelius has always held a special place with me.
what would you change about your life if you could relive it?
