Who doesn't like a challenge?

One of my favorite quotes is:

Do or don't do. There is no try. -Yoda

There is no gray area with this quote. It's a simple phrase to follow. Either do or don't do. Don't just try.

Imagine the rush you will feel when you do. If you don't feel comfortable with the challenge than don't do.

Either way at least you don't waste your time trying...Just do. See how simple that is.

The ideas listed could be added to your bucket list.

They could also be done on the weekend when you are in need of an exciting adventure.

Or you could just consider them a challenge to try just, once in a lifetime.

You could at least try to do something you've never done before. You never know, you might really enjoy it. You then might want to do it more often.

Whether you are carefree or a rebel...never stop doing.

Once in a lifetime...

50 Things To Do...

  1. Pull an all nighter. Do not sleep for 24 hours. You might enjoy it or you might not, I bet you appreciate the experience.
  2. Eat the entire cheesecake. I guarantee you never do that again!
  3. Go for a ride on a motorcycle! Even if some people might consider it a donor-cycle, you might enjoy the thrill of the ride. Do or do not wear a helmet.
  4. Swim in the ocean and don't fear sharks. What are the chances a shark will be there lurking about? Use caution in waters around the state of Florida.
  5. Change a diaper. A messy one. There are plenty of people who haven't maneuvered this yet. Be daring!
  6. For women: Shave your hair off. Britney Spears did it and so can you!
  7. For men: Grow a fu manchu mustache.
  8. Climb a mountain. To the top.
  9. Spend the entire day in bed. Whether solo or with a partner...enjoy the moment.
  10. Create a YouTube video of yourself singing karaoke. Post it on Facebook.
  11. Build a snowman. Taste the snow. Eat the snow...while it's fresh and hasn't been sitting around and has shades of yellow on it.
  12. Write your memoirs. Who knows you better than you know yourself. Create an eBook of you.
  13. Spend the day outdoors with no shoes. I love being barefoot and I would love to be daring enough to do this. It's just not sanitary or safe. I need to practice what I preach.
  14. Don't skirt around the sprinklers, walk through them.
  15. Go fly a kite. When is the last time you took the time to enjoy a beautiful day outdoors just being a kid again? If you have kids, by all means, invite them along.
  16. Go skinny-dipping. Either solo or with your entire book club. Hey, this is your bucket list...aim high.
  17. Write an erotic poem. Express the inner romantic in you.
  18. Read the first and last page of a book, use your imagination to figure out what was written on the other pages.
  19. Have flowers delivered to someone you love.
  20. Dine at a Chinese restaurant and order a pizza with extra pepperoni. Seriously, their expressions would be quite a memory.
  21. Go skydiving, parachuting or bungee jumping. This would be considered daring. Godspeed.
  22. Leave the car at home and travel by bus for a far-out adventure.
  23. Let your voice be heard by joining a protest for any cause.
  24. Dine on frog legs while hopping around.
  25. Send an email to the President and share your thoughts.

Be daring...
