Ever since the movie ‘Bucket list’ in 2007 people are talking more and more about composing their own Bucket List. Everybody wants to do all kind of things before they die. I guess everybody has a Bucket List, just not everybody has written it down. Writing it down you promise yourself it will not end with wishing those things, you are aiming to do them within a reasonable time frame. It makes you feel more alive.
Last year this feeling was strenghtend with the statement YOLO, You Only Live Once. Thinking about this myself I came to the conclusion I want to list some things I want to do before it is too late. I’ve heard friends talking about what they have on their Bucket List, and I think it is good they are concious about these wishes. I also think that as you are working your way down the list, you should make sure you don’t complete it. Because if you have done everything on your Bucket List, then…. well it can all stop…. Having a Bucket List doesn’t mean you plan to die soon, it means you want to live now. So keep adding to your Bucket List! There’s always something more you would want and haven’t done before. It’s the ultimate list of My Firsts to do! Don’t be afraid to put your wishes on your list, big or small, because if you have second thoughts about some of your wishes, you can simply remove them from your list again. After all: It is your Bucket List.
As of now I will draw up my Bucket List and keep working on doing the things on the list and adding new things on it. And remeber: YOLO!
A few items on my list: Completing my Bachelor education, Seeing the movie Hobbit, Getting my Master degree, Bungee jumping, Parachute jumping and seeing New Zeeland.
What’s on your Bucket List?
