Bucket List

I guess I would describe it this way: A bucket list is a snapshot of the heart's wishes and goals and achievements desired to be attained in one's life. I am beginning one now, for at the age of 44, there are years yet I have ahead of me to embrace... to work towards fulfilling a life mission and getting closer and closer to becoming the whole person I want to be. Some of the things on my list are self-improvement things, some are hobbies or frivolous fun activities I want to make sure I plan to do to get my jollies. Some of the things are ones that, if not scheduled, simply will never come to be because there always seems to be something "more important" to get done that's more pressing.

As we glance at some of the ways we spend our time each day... it's amazing how a week or a month, heck--even a year, can slip through our fingers and we wonder where it all went. Without a plan--some of the larger life dreams never come true.

I recently reread a tiny book I had on my shelf--a little motivational tidbit called, It Works, by RH Jarrett ($1.99 at I also found a free download HERE of the same book which is a 5 minute read, but makes sense. In short, there are 3 steps to achieving goals, getting the things you want in your life, which involves pretty much identifying what they are and reminding yourself of them. This process is founded on universal law of attraction... which basically states that, "Law of Attraction says people's thoughts (both conscious and unconscious) dictate the reality of their lives, whether or not they're aware of it. Essentially "if you really want something and truly believe it's possible, you'll get it", but putting a lot of attention and thought onto something you don't want means you'll probably get that too... (Whittaker, S.)"

Oh, you can call me crazy.... you won't be the first one to do so. But the truths I know in life are the ones I can attest to from my own life experiences... theories studied, tested and what has become part of my reality. I'm not here to recruit you on writing your own bucket list, just to share with you my enthusiasm at this juncture...... my life in transition... to focus on a future that is rich with direction and mental attitude that makes the best of a life I was given.

So that's my little bloggie for today.

Do you have a bucket list?

i don't have a bucket list. i honestly have done everything i ever wanted to do with my life. now i am content. is that bad? the only thing really left is being a grandma, but that is not in my control. some of the things i wished for when i was younger are no longer important to me. what i wished for most was having two children (i did) that grew up healthy and happy (they are) to have a loving husband (he is).
and so, every day i go to sleep not at all worried if i don't wake up. i love my life, but i am content. i can't help it.
