Have you ever heard of the term “bucket list?” In case you haven’t, it refers to the list of things you would like to do before you ‘kick the bucket’. Everyone’s bucket list is different but an effective way of knowing someone is asking them how their list looks like. Some people give a lot of importance to material possessions while others give it to experiences.
What’s your take? If you ask me, I am all in favor of experiences. I think that experiences are things that no one can take away from you. Material possessions, on the other hand, can be taken away from you, and it doesn’t matter how hard you have worked to get them. Travelling has always been something that I have enjoyed doing but that has not always been able to.
Going to places like Italy, France, Germany or Spain are at the top of my list. They are countries that I consider to be very rich in history and that can provide you the best experiences culturally-wise. Traveling is not the only thing on my list. I would also like to get a doctor’s degree in something. I am not so sure on what but getting that level of education does a lot for a person.
I would also like to coach a kids’ team in a sport, like soccer or basketball. Teaching is something that I wanted to do since I was a little kid. After going to school and attending some courses, I got my teaching degree and started teaching. I had a lot of success doing that and gave classes for about 15 years. It gave me a lot of satisfaction and life lessons.
Your list might be a lot different from mine. You might want to do a lot of risky stuff that I might not even want to try. But the important thing is not to leave any of your dreams out. Your dreams are your most important possessions. Not your house or your car. So, as long as you write them down along with a date attached, then you will be fine.
The lady in the following video has just turned 102 years old. Just think of how many people manage to even get close to that milestone. Not many, I can assure you. She is determined to go through her bucket list as fast as she could. So, she remembered that there was still something that she had not done before but she would love to. Would you like to know what it is?
