I think everyone should have a bucket list irregardless of age, health or anything else. Why, because we all have such busy lives that the things we would like to do simply get put off time and again. We too often seem to forget that our time is limited and we do need to make the most of it. I doubt if many have even seriously given thought to their own list of things they would like to do before they die. Oh, we all see something and think gee now that is something i would really like to do. But does it usually ever go any further than that passing thought. Some how time has this habit of just slipping by on us. It goes by so fast that one day we wake up and realize that because of health, age or whatever the name of our list just changes. It changes from a list of things I would like to do, to a list of things I would liked to have done. At that point all we can do is look back over our lives, shaking our heads with wonder and regret.
For reasons I do appreciate but do not understand the why of, I have been granted extra time. I have emptied my bucket list several times. Now there is one item remaining and I am working on that one.
Now that is not to say I don’t have my fantasy bucket list. I need the lottery to cooperate with the top item and hey I am a guy so use your imagination for the rest.
I received an email a while back that has just stuck in my head. I apologize for the language but hey it really make the point clear.
My bucket list is almost empty, but my f–k it bucket is full to overflowing and being added to by the day.
Now sorry if that one word offends just change it to what ever you like.
Just think if we did a general house cleaning of our lives, de-clutter. Now I am not suggesting anyone shuck their responsibilities or any such thing. Look at your life, it is your life to live and I am sure you will find things and even people who cause on going un-needed stress. It is your life stand up and claim it for yourself.
