What are ten items on your own personal bucket list?
Bucket lists, for those who dont know, are lists of things to do before you die. What are your top ten?
Kathleen.....As usual, because I believe I live my life on auto-pilot every moment......The "Bucket List" rage really never got me excited......I can't honestly say if I've always been ahead of my time, or seriously lagging.
I simply don't become involved in "What's the latest?" Who's doing what?" "Follow the Leader."......(you know what I'm saying)
I suppose I'd be more ORGANIZED if I wrote things down...things like goals, wishes, dreams.....but I fly by what's going on in MY life and just how I'm feeling at any given time. My mind is "on" at all times......so often I need to focus on intentionally shutting it down, just to give myself a rest......to live in the moment and appreciate what's right in front of me.
I don't feel a need to always be reaching for something......because I'm able to be happy and at peace with who I am and what I have thus far.
I'm grateful for so much.....the things I planned with intention and the things that just "happened." I've gone through the learning process of being happy with what I have.......not what might be or should be.
We're all slated to leave this earth sooner or later. I just don't happen to want to focus on "that day"...when I'll be leaving.
A bucket list? I just hope to be as healthy, happy, productive and fulfilled as I possibly can for whatever time I'm allowed to hang out here.
I'm by no means done with trying to "make that difference" for my fellow man.
To all those writing, memorizing, posting and planning their bucket list......I have a question. What happens when you've completed it all?
Well...........good question, Kathleen. I'm sure you'll garner some very interesting responses.
Wish I had written that-- because I feel the same way.,,, and I'd hate to get to my last day and have my last thought be "Dang... I've still got two things on my list.".
Rochelle....LOL! Really.....I see what you mean....."Hey WAIT!, I can't die yet! I still have to surf the waves at Waikiki & swim with the dolphins!!!" LOL
I do not think you are supposed to tell people. I think that jinks it. Just my notion maybe.

Is there a real difference between having a "midlife crisis" and pursuing items on a "bucket list"?A 50 year old man who buys a Corvette is often accused of having a "midlife crisis". However in all honesty this may have been a dream of his since childhood and when he...

I am not sure if you have all seen the movie about a "bucket list"? Essentially the movie is about a list of things to do before you die ("kick the bucket").My friends and I have had many interesting conversations and there is one prominent conclusion we often reach... But why...
