This Is Why A Bucket List Is A Good Idea

Think you’ve got your whole life ahead of you to do all the things you want to do? Think again. Alex Lewis was diagnosed with bone cancer at the age of 17 and died at 22. In the time in between he lived his life more than many of us do in 80 years.

He got married, went cliff diving and made a parachute jump. He went to Australia to visit friends, having booked tickets only two days before as a spur-of-the-moment decision.

My point is that no-one knows what will happen to them tomorrow. You can’t assume that you have all the time in the world because you might not. It’s not always easy. You will be constrained by money and by time, but work at it. You don’t want to get hit by a bus tomorrow and realise that you never got around to seeing the Taj Mahal or driving a Ferrari, or whatever is on your own list. Write your list down and start thinking about how you can achieve the items on it.

About elentari86

Apparently blogs need to cover a certain niche in order to attract readers. My aim is not to attract readers. I don't deny it would be nice not to just be spouting to myself, but the reason I set this blog up was to give myself somewhere to write down my thoughts. If anyone reads them, that's a bonus. This blog will cover a mix of things - anything that comes to mind that I want to write about. I make no promises about how often I will publish new content.
