You’ve heard people use the phrase “life happens,” and boy does it. Life is something that’s so precious, yet it can be taken away from us in the blink of an eye. Death isn’t something people like to think about too often, and understandably so, but death is also something that’s inescapable. Because death is inescapable, it’s all the more reason why you should live your life to the absolute fullest.
As you go about your daily life, can you honestly say that you’re happy with where you are in life and have had memorable experiences? If you’re like most people, you’ve had some memorable life experiences but there are probably some life experiences you haven’t had and wish you had. Everyone feels that way about a lot of things, and as common as this feeling is, regret is one of the worst feelings a person can ever experience.
Living a Life of Regret
People experience feelings of regret for many different reasons but one common reason why people feel regret is because life is so fast. Ultimately, regret is a feeling you have due to missing some type of opportunity. Whether it was a job opportunity or asking your crush on a date, regret is something that no one should take a chance on.
Regret is the very reason to live your life to the fullest. Now, in order to do that, you first have to pay attention to the things happening in your life and the opportunities being presented to you. In doing that, you also sometimes have to create your own experiences as well.
Everyone isn’t going to have the same perspective as you on lots of things but there are certain experiences that everyone should have at least once in their lifetime. And even with those experiences, no one person will have the same viewpoint or perspective… everyone’s perspective will be different but there’s no denying that everyone should have these experiences once in their lifetime.
Experiences Everyone Should Have Once in Their Life
Falling in Love
As cliche as it may sound, falling in love is one of the most wonderful feelings in the world. Unfortunately, everyone doesn’t take the opportunity to experience it. Why is it that people seldom experience love? Well, to experience love means that you have to open yourself up and make yourself emotionally vulnerable… people aren’t so willing to put their vulnerability on the line like that.
The thing that scares people about opening yourself up to love is the fact that it also leaves you open to experiencing a world of hurt too, and that’s what people are afraid of. Everyone wants to know what it takes to have a long-lasting relationship but at the same time, no one wants to have their heart broken.
If you find yourself falling in love, there are signs to tell if you’re falling in love with the right person, according to Elite Daily… it’s all about how your significant other makes you feel.
Some people are immediately able to pick up on these signs and be able to tell that they’re with the right person… that ability doesn’t come as easy for others and they end up loving someone who isn’t right for them. It’s nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed of though. As the saying goes,
“Tis better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all.”
A Solo Trip
If you’ve never been on a vacation by yourself, you absolutely have to. Just make sure that your solo trip is a stress-free vacation. The best thing about solo trips is that you have the freedom to do whatever you want. So whether you want to have a relaxing trip full of spa visits or an exciting weekend full of hiking adventures and sightseeing, the only way to experience true peace and the ability to move at your own pace while traveling is if you travel by yourself.
Learning a Musical Instrument
How many times have you admired people who play musical instruments? All the time! Whether you see someone playing the guitar or the piano, their musical skills are definitely something to envy.
The awesome thing about people who play musical instruments is that their talent and skill set isn’t just reserved for them. If you want to learn how to play a musical instrument, you have the freedom to do so. You can enroll in music lessons and be the musical talent you’ve always envied.
Live By Yourself
Living by yourself is a form of freedom that not too many people get to experience in their lifetime. Whether you’ve lived at home with your parents, had roommates, or lived with a significant other, living alone is one of the most freeing feelings. Not only does it put you on the road to self-discovery but it also is one of the biggest ways to find out how independent and self-sufficient you are. Everyone should experience this once.
