Did you just say... ...he was the life of Adam.
~ The quote of the song made by Steve Shine in the movie.
If you believe you wasted your life, as you seem to have insinuated you will gain nothing from regretting it and will only depress yourself you cannot change anything from the past. There is something that I assure you of that will always be true. It doses not matter if you live for the next 1 year, 5 years, 10 years, 15 years, 20 years, 30 years, 50 years or even 100 years. The day before you die you will regret ever worrying about your life instead of thinking of what you want to do. Every new year that you do live, you will regret not having started anything that you wanted to do the year prior, only regretting the past more. What I mean is that you should think of what you want to do today; not starting next year, next month, but today. Thinking that you are not going to be able to do anything in future will only ensure that fate.
~ Adam's famous quote.
