Why Bother?

Nothing that would be on my list would ever get accomplished anyway, so all I'd be left with is a list of regrets at the end of my life. It would be my "Regret List".

Hahaha, ok, I'll let you in on the secret if I ever find it. I guess in some ways, making a list of things you want to do is good in that it gives you something to strive for, but like you said it's a double-edged sword. It can also seem daunting and unachievable, especially if you're already of a personality that feels everything in your life as an impossible task. The "what-ifs" and "if-onlys" are something that is very ingrained in my personality, and writing them all down only reinforces all the things that I have yet to "do" in my life.

That's true, but some days I wish it didn't have to be that way. I wish that my fear of trying anything new or my reluctance and low self-confidence would not stand in my way of really wanting to do a lot of things before I die. Double-edged sword I guess.
