Another post about how wonderful/awful 2013 was?

"The loneliest moment in someone's life is when they are watching their whole world fall apart, but all they can do is stare blankly." 

Now everyone is just thinking about what they've done or accomplished throughout 2013. But why now and not in June? Or in February? You still had time to think about what you haven't achieved and look for other ways to achieve it. I don't know, humans are just stupid. We don't realise things until the very last moment, when you just can't do anything to fix it. So instead of remembering the things I've done or writing down my new year's resolutions, I'm writing down what, at the very end , everyone regrets. Not only at the end of the year, but at the end of everything.

When you know you have a lot of time to make things right, you just don't worry about it. You regret every procrastinating second of the year once it's over (or once your finals week has arrived). You regret not telling people how much they meant to you once they're gone. You regret not saying things you wanted to say so terribly when they don't matter anymore. You regret not being a better person when you have no time left. You regret not taking that phone call once you realise it could've changed everything. You regret not taking care of a friend once you've lost him/her. You regret not trying to achieve your dreams once you're sat down with an existential crisis. You regret not going out more with your friends once you have to go to work the next day. You regret not living your life to the fullest once you realise what people think is not relevant. You regret not loving yourself knowing that it's what at the end makes you truly happy.

We regret too many things in life. And even though we know we will regret some of them at some point in our lives, we still don't do the things we should to prevent those feelings of regret. So why setting up some resolutions when we just can remember what we will regret if we don't do certain (and easy) things daily?
