    Lest not regret. It is by mere fleeting chance that any of us exist.I do not believe the paths we take and the choices we make are an illusion as some may.Every person can alter things in their own life and even affect others, much like the stars and planets that are already set on a path of there own, affecting many others around them.The life and death of a star or even a galaxy can give us a feeling of insignificance compared to our own lives for who will care once we have all turned to dust; I say care for you the future is jus another moment in time in which we cannot regret.So live your life with no regrets and it shall be a happy one, the thought of death is the most fearful thing there is:hence why most never give it much thought.It is but a consolation dying in your bed many years from now knowing that you left nothing on the table,held nothing back and led your life full without regret.
