What is a bucket list? I always hear people saying that this or that is on my bucket list. There was even a movie done in the early 2000’s called ‘Bucket List’.
Well I have discovered it is simply a list of things you want to do or accomplish in your life time. Is it important to have them or is it just a wish list? Well as I have said before I am a strong believer of dreams. I believe if you can dream it you can achieve it. I believe if your mind has gone there then one day your feet will go there and God knows I have been to places I dreamt about.
Yes, things don’t always go according to plan and we should appreciate that because somebody greater than us sometimes has an even better plan for us. This week I was reminded of that while doing some personal reading. A woman who always wanted to have a child was never able to conceive but later in her life when she had moved on and given up on having children…behold she got pregnant. Yes Sarah. You know her. So yes we are aware sometimes things don’t go according to plan but lets have a plan. When you have a plan you are more energetic and more focused. Nothing is worse than when you’re dating and you meet a guy who has no plan.
This week I was privileged to tick off one thing on my bucket list…Rome and the Vatican City. We hear about it and sometimes we think its not a big deal, but Catholic or not, Rome is a sight for sore eyes. Founded in 753B.C as in yes Before Christ…it’s magnificent buildings, crazily beautiful sculptures, narrow streets with lots of restaurants serving pasta and yes the extra nice Italian ice-cream. Lets not even talk about the Colosseum (completed in the year 0080) or St. Peters Basilica (completed in the year 1615) because they scream out at you and you can see thousands of people just happy to be walking in a Harry Potter kind of scenery or in the Popes presence. To think that Rome is an old city and most of these structures were done by crazy artists of those days.
So back to my bucket list. 10 places I want to visit in my life time, 10 people I would like to meet in my life time and 10 things I want to achieve. Lots of things on my bucket list.
So yes, lets do our bucket lists, lets think positive about we want to do, where we want to go and what we hope to achieve in our life time. Lets work to towards 10 things on our bucket list. It is never that serious…add some fun things as well. So write your list and then happily tick off as you achieve them. Don’t forget to take other people with you on your life’s journey and positively contribute so that we have something to say about you when you’re long gone. #leavealegacy#enjoyit#dothebucket list.
