The Bucket List
I started watching the movie ”The Bucket List” tonight and it had to throw open more than a few questions, especially for someone like me.
One thing I know since the beginning of this whole experience, and by that I mean the beginning being the moment I answered the phone and was told my mum had an inoperable brain tumour. Life had already changed for her forever and after that phone call my life would change forever too, and the lives of all the people around us.
So with life changing moments capable of being one ringtone away, shouldn’t we just create a bucket list from the moment we are old enough to think of one? Probably, but what if you have no idea what to write on it?
I don’t know, I’m writing this on the fly and I really don’t know where this is going.
Truth is, do we need to go bungee jumping or see an Elephant in the wild. What can we really put on a bucket list, what is really important in life that we could even create a list. I think the truth is when you are told that you are sick then the list would change anyway, just being out of hospital would be top of the list.
Some people in life always seem to know what they want to do, where they want to be and exactly where they are going. Those are the people with bucket lists I think.
Me, I’m the type of person who hates answering the phone because I’m scared to death of the ringtone – that’s all I worry about.
I know I’m wrong and missing the point, tell me how it is please?
