Here I am again blogging!!!
With every blog post I publish, I aim to challenge you to take a moment to think about things a little deeper.
This blog post is no different.
This blog is about bucket lists.
Bucket lists contain things you wish to achieve before you die. Sorry for sounding morbid, but sooner or later, we will all die so it’s important to live your life to the full…
If you haven’t already, I encourage you to create a bucket list. They are great because they allow you to dream crazy dreams and give you something to look forward to as you grow older. I have seen a lot of adventurous bucket lists out there which consist of things like:
- scuba dive the great barrier reef
- go bungee jumping
- become a millionaire by the time I’m 30
- solve a rubix- cube
- meet Mike Tyson!
I think these things are exciting because they make us feel alive. However, I have noticed that a lot of bucket lists are about making ourselves feel good.
There is nothing wrong with this at all, however, I have a suggestion to make.
Can I invite you to write an additional bucket list? One that benefits others?
For example, before I die I would like to:
- fund a child’s education
- invite lonely people to my home
- randomly pay for someone’s food shopping at the supermarket
- take someone on a shopping spree
- make time for an older family member
Think about it. Some of the most inspirational people in history are those who make the wellbeing of others a priority. I encourage you today to start putting a list together and to start working on it straight away.
If you feel comfortable, please leave a comment below listing one thing you would add to your new bucket list.
Until next time.
