We saw the movie "The Bucket List" starring Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson last night which got me to thinking about my OWN bucket list. My sense is anyone can make a Bucket List anytime--one doesn't need to be given a death sentence of 6 months by a doctor.
As Carlos Castaneda wrote in his books, death is always stalking each and every one of us, and so it's wise to be remember and be aware that at any moment, it could be your 'time'. Not all of us get the luxury of knowing when we're going to die, so crossing-off your bucket list while you're still alive and kicking seems like a smart move to me.
For those that don't know what the words 'Bucket List' mean, these derive from the old English phrase, "To Kick The Bucket" which means you die.
Making a bucket list is a lot like setting goals--goals which are heart-felt dreams that we've never gotten around to doing because a busy life or something else distracted or prevented us from doing them.
Here are a few of such dreams which have made it to my own bucket list:
1. Travel to Tahiti, Bora-Bora, and Morea
2. Build my dream home/sanctuary
3. Complete my book
And what is on YOUR bucket list?
