What if It’s Your Last Chance? – Stop Regretting

regret
from 11885172@N07

My grandma lying on the bed, cold and expressionless. The
air around was stiff and everyone was speechless…wondering
what words to feel the dead silence (except for short moments
of whipping of tears)

What do you say to someone who has just passed away?
Or what do you say to those who are still alive standing next to
you?

In such moment of awkwardness, it is really hard to even utter a
simple word of “It is ok to cry.”

My grandma just passed away this morning at 7.49am. I was confused
by what I could do…

cry or not to cry…?

Being in the professional helping line for almost 6 years, it is my
natural instinct to attend to other people’s feelings FIRST.

Many thoughts went through my mind – What if the one on
the bed lying motionless is me?

Or what if it is you?

I like to make this post a simple one. Looking back at my
internet marketing (IM) journey for the past 2 years, it
was really awesome.

No regrets if I am to leave this world today.

Now, let’s talk about us.

It is fate to have us landed in the field of IM.
It is never chance that you chanced upon IM, got
subscribed to my site or get to keep on learning about
what my blog has to offer you.

I feel, since we are presented to this once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity to have our lives changed for the better
possibly, we must never give up.

For the fact you are reading this, I supposed you have
never given up on yourself.

Congrats yourself to be a fighter and I know it is never
easy to overcome life adversity and to change our mindset
into a winner’s mindset.

I hope you can still push on and make your life better
and I really hope that we always live our lives to the fullest
and there is no need for us to regret what we have not done
or for not doing what we are supposed to do.

Keep on fighting for the dream you deserved and I
wish you all the success you can get.

Submit your comments below. I would love to hear from you.

    Hi John

    you have made your life so complicated that u have to even think that should u cry or not…. it should not be so… there are few places where u dont have to apply ur this money making mind… it should be simple and automatic… encouragement, moving on in life is great thought, but is it correct to commercialize someones death… i donno why i differ from some of ur thoughts (may be thats why i am ‘I’ and u r ‘U’)

    Beautiful post John. I’m really sorry to hear about your grandmother’s passing.

    I believe most everyone has experienced what you’re going through in some way or another.

    When my grandparents went on, I took comfort in the hope
    of one day seeing them again in the afterlife.

    You’re so right when you talk about how it could be
    any of us in their place, but for the grace of God.

    I can’t help but believe your grandmother is very
    proud of you John, because in the time we’ve
    known one another,

    You’ve always been one of the most genuine,
    kind and down to earth people I’ve met.

    You’re a special person and I feel for you
    in your time of grief.

    Please do let me know if you ever
    need to talk.

    May God’s love, peace and comfort surround,
    fill and keep you and your family during this difficult time.

    Hi John,
    My deepest condolence on your grandma death.

  11. randall says

    i am sorry to hear about your grandfather , i feel for you,

  12. kathy says

    I am very sorry to hear of the loss of your Grandmother, and thank you for sharing this, it makes me feel I am on the site of a human being, sometimes the web can feel so mechanical, I forget there is actually a person on the other side I can communicate with.
    It is moments like this when we can try to comfort each other, if only in words to show we care and we are not only driven by the promise of wealth.
    I am sure your Grandmother was very proud of you, and without my faith I would not want to live a day, trust that she is in good hands, god bless, Kathy

    Hi John,

    First, my condolence to you and your family.

    Second, thanks for the encouragement. I don’t know if it was a coincidence or what. But I was really feeling like I wanted to give up right now after more than six years since I came across the word affiliate. And then I read your blog when I opened my email.

    Thanks again.

    Edwin

  19. Rachel Lim says

    This post touched me deep and thank you for sharing with us your thoughts.

    Your grandma has completed her mission here and she has to move on to another place.

    As when someone we love left us, part of us left with them too. Time will heal the pain and loss.

    Take care.

    John,

    It might be comforting to remember that in truth there is no such thing as death only Translation to different Dimension of Reality.The Sikh Dharma talks about Sa Ta Na Ma,which translates as Rebirth Life Death Infinity,death is not the end just the end of one stage of life and the welcoming of the soul to a new dimension.Good insight you garnered from the Experience about transcending negative emotion and practicing present awareness.THanks for sharing your Experience and Understanding!Contiuned blessing in you Service Work,

    Joseph,

  21. hidman says

    Deepest condolences from me as well. You take care now..

  22. Leila says

    My thoughts are with you. Thanks for posting at this time – it’s not easy to put into words what you must be feeling now, it’s hard to lose someone you love, but as people have said above – when you love someone they stay in your heart forever.

  23. Cassandra says

    John you and your family are in my prayers. I just lost my beautiful nephew in a head on collision a week ago. So trust me when I say I know your pain. Just know that in time you and your family will heal. God bless you.

  24. Victoria says

I wanted to thank you for your encouragement, I see you are a very strong person and in service to others, this is I believe our mission. I send you the 6 virtues of the heart: Virtues, Compassion, Humility, Forgiveness, Divine Love, Understanding, Valor and Appreciation. John, I think you know this already. May light always bless you and your family.

    John, Thanks for posting and reminding us to value our family. My grandma passed three weeks ago. She was very special to me and taught me many things about life. The night before her funeral I stayed up late looking at some pictures of her and put some up on my facebook.

    Take care and stay strong
    Glad to be on your list

  26. John Yeo says

    Thanks alot my friends…now is the 3rd day of the funeral…
    really taxing to some extent…but not a lot compared to
    the tons of stuff my uncle and aunty need to settle…

    remember life’s short…that is only so much
    we can do….so make use of time wisely and
    effectively =) and do what you dream of…and
    make your dream come true…

    John
