My dad’s been railing on me for months to watch The Bucket List. Well tonight I finally watched it…it’s only been stuck on my tivo for the last 4 months. Of course I started creating my own bucket list, but then something occurred to me.
I don’t want a bucket list. I don’t want a list of things that I should have done when I was younger. I don’t want to be in a situation where I look back on my life with regret and wonder, “why didn’t I do this when I was 25.”
My goal is to not have a bucket list. My goal is to leave no stone unturned as I go through life. I want to knock off my bucket list as I get older, not while I’m staring down the last few days of a life not having worth lived.
As we ring in the new year…as we kick off 2010…as we start making resolutions and goals, stop putting things off. Stop thinking you’ll have time. Stop waiting for maybe some day. Start living the bucket list now.
