Everyday is an Adventure. Embrace it

Why make a bucket list?

Why make a bucket list when you haven’t been told you are dying?
Why wait until someone gives you an expiration date before you live?

For me, the answers were easy. Each of us, no matter how healthy you are (or think you are), is given a promise of tomorrow, next week, or even the next 15 minutes.

People die everyday in accidents, lose theirs lives to a serious illness, or are torn from the life they once comfortably knew and are thrown into a dire circumstance.  The lucky or blessed people have a support group of family, friends, church members, community, or such. The unlucky ones will suffer alone, with no support, or company.

In all these situations, there’s always reflecting. The mind of the suffering one or suffering families left behind are full of the “would’ve”…”could’ve”…”should’ve”.  These are all regrets. Regrets do not make people happy. They do not fulfill a need deep in the heart or soul &; do not heal.

The only way I’ve figured not to end this way, is to LIVE, LOVE, FORGIVE, & ENJOY as you move through this borrowed time on earth. This doesn’t mean live in total self, but rather to live without the infamous regrets of life. Live to make others happy. Buy that toaster oven that is on sale so you don’t hear yourself say, “I should’ve…could’ve bought that on sale.”

I will not personally and will not allow my children to live life with regrets now. There should never be a time when we look back on life and say, “oh, I wish I had xxxx. I should’ve xxxx.” 

So, we made our list and add to it as new ideas occur to us. The list may seem simple, but it’s full of gratification!

  1. I drop a leave a response each time I appreciate a post on a
    site or I have something to contribute to the conversation.
    It is caused by the sincerness displayed in the article I read.
    And after this post Why make a bucket list? Adventures’s Blog. I was excited enough to drop a thought 🙂 I do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not to mind. Could it be just me or do a few of the remarks come across like written by brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are writing on other sites, I’d like to keep up with anything fresh
    you have to post. Would you make a list every
    one of your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?


    • Thanks for your comment. Early on in my writing, I did not have the SPAM filters set appropriately and several SPAM comments made their was through. So, some comments do appear to be “brain dead” or very poorly written 🙂 I will post my social sites as well if you’d like to view them later today. Thanks again for stopping by and commenting 🙂 Have a happy day!
