The Bucket List
Ahhh, the bucket list ! The infamous bucket list. Do you really need a bucket list? I never thought I did but I am putting one together now. What is a bucket list? Why is it important that we have one? Well they say you only live once. Life is so full of things to do and most never even scratch the surface. Why is that? Just like everything else along the way, we put off to a more convenient time or are we just procrastinators by nature? Sometimes the fear of doing something will hinder the things we'd like to accomplish. Even our life circumstances. I know when our families are young, we are afraid to take unnecessary risk out of fear of something happening to us and then who would care for our young ? But now at this stage in life we understand how fear has exercised a restraint over us. There is nothing to fear but fear itself!!! Sometimes tho fear has nothing to do with it, but we are more concerned about what others may think. So we allow ourselves to remain in their comfort zone. How unfair to us! Even though we are of an extraordinary group, there are certain challenges we now need to face. We need to learn to live life with as few regrets as possible. Seize the moment ! Time is precious, should a door or window open take the opportunity to explore the possibilities now that you have the chance. For you may not be presented with such an opportunity again. Yes, the bucket list is necessary!! Lets get it out, let it be filled till it overflows. Always remembering that fear is only False Evidence Appearing Real!!! Whats gonna be on your bucket list?!?!? Are you gonna jump out of a plane? Write a novel? Extreme or not, its on your list. I'd love to hear. Please share!!! Follow me on twitter at jogates15 and niftyafterfifty.blogspot.com.
