Bronnie Ware, well known as the author of the best-selling memoir, The Top Five Regrets of the Dying has been read by over a million people worldwide. Bronnie sat by the bedsides of terminally ill people for years, and today teaches us how to ensure we don't create those same regrets ourselves. Bronnie's new book Bloomis an amazing read. The mental and physical pain and incredible challenges Bronnie went through after becoming an international best selling author, has to be read to be believed. An amazing story and of a beautiful person. Here's what we discuss with Bronnie in this show. When people ask Bronnie what she does, how does she like to reply? Being with people in their final moments of life, you become close…emotionally how does it feel when you become close, but you know in only a few weeks you’ll lose a friend? We seem to be underestimating time… what’s Bronnie’s view on time? Whilst bedside Bronnie had some very profound conversations with those who were dieing, “there was no room for trivia” did that have an effect on Bronnie’s own conversations where words are more valued? The choice is a life of joy or a life of regret. Bronnie stood for time staring into the mirror, how did Bronnie see the mirror? Every day you loose a little more of yourself until one day you look in that mirror and ask “who am I” and “where have I gone?’ SONG LYRIC "Sitting near you nothing to say, doesn’t mean I don't care, feelings too strong, words aren’t there… “ the power of the silence when you just sit near someone who is dying, and they just want company…. what’s that like?  Bronnie’s fav Johnny Cash song.  Bronnie said “space is medicine” and has learnt to leave space, what’s that look like? A turning point for Bronnie was when she said “I’m an artist”… yet her Dad was a well known musician never acknowledged it,  I am … Why the where is so important. What is RA? How bad did it get? Is it a privilege for Bronnie to even walk, does Bronnie often consider the joy of a step? Did Bronnie want to give up? Did Bronnie ever consider herself Gritty? Bronnie’s patient Grace, 86 years old, who shared a life changing lesson. "When living by trust and intuitive guidance life’s signposts become impossible to ignore", what's a signpost look like, what am I looking out for? Does Bronnie still trampoline… why does it help, whats the science?     LINKS   Bronnie Ware   The Mojo Radio Theme song by Crimson Royale   The Mojo Radio Show   The Mojo Radio Show on Facebook   The Mojo Radio Show on Twitter   The Mojo Radio Show Answering Machine 08 7200 6656 08 7200 MOJO   The Mojo Radio Show copyright Gary Bertwistle & Darren Robertson   Products or companies we discuss are not paid endorsements.

What a Ride!”
