Check out this post on the top 5 regrets of the dying. Sorry it sounds so maudlin but I believe the lessons that could be learned are worth the exercise of thinking of our mortality.

disclaimer: I don’t know much about the Inspiration and Chai blog so I’m not endorsing it, just think this article is worth it.
