How are you living to avoid regret in your old age?

I believe that some of the most common regrets that our elders face are not having lived up to their potential, and not helping enough people. (Bill O'Reilly brought this up at the end of The O'Reilly Factor last night.) Do not waste the precious time that you have on this earth. Make a difference; either in your life or somebody else's. You don't want to lay on your deathbed with any regrets.

    Apr 18 2013: Wow that is really excellent! Talk about living life to the fullest! It sounds like a challenge that you and your husband have been tackling really well. Of course living a full life is always going to be a challenge (hopefully made easier by time and experience) but is well worth it in the end. :)
