I was remembering fondly the travels that I had experienced on my own and with my daughter. We had shared many experiences, and life had played out the way I had hoped...at least I think it did?
I'm not sure why my daughter was not by my side? Perhaps I choose to exit the stage alone...maybe my daughter had become a crazy adventurer and was out traveling....who knows? One thing is certain I definitely did not regret where I was and how it was all ending.
The next morning I awoke early and reflected on where my life is now, all I could say in my head was " Live Life do not look back and live without regret". I began to think of occurrences where I might have not attempted something I wanted to, missed opportunities or chances I never gave myself.
It was very sobering to look at life from the view of death. I came to the assumption that when my time does indeed come, however it comes, I would prefer to leave regret free.
Just as the man I dreamed about I would also like to leave this earth with a smile, and at peace of what became of my life. I want to know I fulfilled what I set out to do, and left my daughter in a position to be proud of her pops.
Although I could never predict what my end days look like, if they come anywhere close to this dream perhaps that smile will someday become a reality.
