Wishing upon a thousand lifetimes
Mario had tried to live his life in a way that he rarely regretted his choices. That doesn't mean to say that he never made mistakes, but he liked to think that he was mature enough to learn from them, tried not to make the same mistake twice. He genuinely loves his life, and is determined to live out this short lifetime as best as he can.
So when he finds himself at a cross-roads he never thought he'd have to travel on, he realises that this is second chance at another lifetime, one where the lessons of the past lead to dormant dreams finally being fulfilled, if only he has the courage to take this chance.
