After too many years of unfulfilling work, Bronnie Ware began searching for a job with heart. Despite having no formal qualifications or experience, she found herself working in palliative care.
Over the years she spent tending to the needs of those who were dying, Bronnie's life was transformed. Later, she wrote an Internet blog about the most common regrets expressed to her by the people she had cared for. The article, also called The Top Five Regrets of the Dying, gained so much momentum that it was read by more than three million people around the globe in its first year. At the requests of many, Bronnie now shares her own personal story.
Bronnie has had a colourful and diverse past, but by applying the lessons of those nearing their death to her own life, she developed an understanding that it is possible for people, if they make the right choices, to die with peace of mind. In this book, she expresses in a heartfelt retelling how significant these regrets are and how we can positively address these issues while we still have the time.
The Top Five Regrets of the Dying gives hope for a better world. It is a story told through sharing her inspiring and honest journey, which will leave you feeling kinder towards yourself and others, and more determined to live the life you are truly here to live. This delightful memoir is a courageous, life-changing book.
Healing to read.
From the heart
Beautifully written and inspiring, straight from the heart.
Wake up call
This book made me realise I had been living toxically for a while now..I wanted to reconnect with the positive person I always was but was struggling. I tried to retire for the third time at 61. I hit the wall emotionally and physically. I could totally relate to the meltdown Bronnie felt because she expressed it so honestly and simply. Books like this one are a balm for the soul making us wake up and give thanks for who we are and how we are really only here for a nanosecond. I now understand why I have been so without a compass and now have strategies to help me get back to where I would like to be..thanks for the reawakening..I will read this again very soon..
And yes humour heals so much..if only more people realised..
