I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the things that I want to do in life.
I’m only 26 but I’ve realized that it is too easy to fall into daily routines and let time pass you by. I don’t want to lose track of time and not experience all the things I want to see and do before it is too late.
A life list is in order. In other words I’m starting a bucket list. I’m a list writer so I’m surprised I haven’t officially done this yet. Instead of making a list up until now all I’ve done is make metal lists and then promptly file the list in the back of my brain to be ignored.
Not anymore. There is so much to see, eat, touch and do in this world and I don’t want to let life pass me by. I may or may not be having a quarter-life crisis. Really I may or may not have been having a quarter life crisis on and off for the last few years. Maybe. Maybe not, but probably yes.
So here are the first few entries in my list:
1. Learn to speak another language fluently.
2. Run a Marathon.
3. Live in a different country for at least 6 months.
4. Make a Souffle.
5. Learn to cook Indian food like a pro.
6. Learn how to salsa dance.
7. Ride in a hot air balloon.
8. Visit Italy, Greece and Spain.
9. Own a home outright.
10. Visit the Great Wall of China.
It’s a start and I feel better having gotten this much written down, it’s like these are actual goals now.
So what are some of the things you MUST do in you lifetime?
