A few years ago I watched the movie”the bucket list” with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson and I thought if I was dying what would I want to do before I bite the dust so I made my own “bucket list”
1- jump out of a plane( I was afraid of heights note keyword “was”)
2-white water rafting
3-hot air balloning(see the heights thing not a issue see#4 too)
4- para sail
5- go to Hawaii
6-helicopter over a volcanoes( ok that was friggin scary in an old 1950 mash helicopter)
7-do a marathon ( I hate running but hell if oprah can do it!)
8-zip line (refer to #1)
9- triathlon (ok this one is just plain stupid I suck at swimming and I dont like running, who knows it just sounded cool)
10- and for my next adventure I want to do the Tony Robbins seminar where at the end you walk on fire (yes again Oprah did it and besides I’ve been through fire hell I can surly walk on it!)
Getting back to my first thought… I have been training since June 1 every day six days a week, even on my three week trip back home I even joined a gym and went about 17 days out of it ,yes sick I know but didnt want to lose all that training time!
Now yes I do have two kids,a full time job , a part time job and a life so you say I’m too busy and what that didnt sound like a busy life to you?
But I want to achieve this goal so I awake at five am to be to the gym by six. I train on the weekends.whenever!
Ok focus here ,that was for me ! I am so sore my calfs are crying, my knee throbs , my stomach is.so tight I want to throw up,my hair feels like straw from the chlorine, and I cant lift my arms from all the weights! I am falling.apart and I love it! I am having a blast,it gives me something to look forward.too ,that I am excited to be.here in the morning(I write this on the treadmill) but dear God I am counting the days to it as Immight ha e to crawl across the finish line !
I am so excited.about all the changes in my life and know that this bucket life will continue to get bigger and bigger as I want to live big before its time for me to go home!
So challenge yourself,step out of your box, do it now you only live once!!
