What’s on your Bucket List?

bucket listHi,

Last week I saw the movie The Bucket List (2007), starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. It is about two guys who meet at a hospital. Both are diagnosed terminally ill. They are going on a journey together to do things that are on their Bucket List (things you want to do before you die). It made me think what I would put on my Bucket List.

The essence of any good bucket list consists of overcoming fears, achieving goals, realizing dreams and even simple pleasures. Whether it’s an exotic adventure half-way around the world or something simpler, like spending more time with your family or friends. What matters is that you experience all the good and phenomenal things Earth offers.

Here are some things that come to my mind for my bucket list:

Meet some people that inspire me;
Deepak Chopra
Daniel Pink
Brene Brown

To learn how to;
Play one masterpiece on the piano
do Capoeira
Sail a hobbycat catamaran

To do;
A TED talk
Write a book
Make a trip with Mike & Luna in Asia and/or Australia
Yoga/ meditation retreat in a warm country
Gallup on a horse along a beach
Swim with dolphins

And while I’m writing down the things that I would like to do, I realize that I allready have completed many other things that were on my Bucket List, before I knew you could call your personal goals and desires a bucket list, like;

Travel to India
Learn how to play the violin
Play in a band
Act in a movie
Work for myself
Try drugs
Learn spanish
Travel on top of a bus
Travel on top of a camel
Own and rent a house
Have a kid
Inspire people
Get a coverphoto on a magazine annemarie cover

And summing up this second completed list, I feel very thankful and rich.

I would like to invite you to make up your own bucket list, and also take notice of your allready completed things.

Suppose the World will end on December 21st, What will you choose from your Bucket List to do this week?

Let’s do it. And please share in a comment, so we can read about it after it turns out the world keeps spinning round after December 21st. πŸ˜‰

With enthusiasm,

Annemarie Steen

    I won’t be doing anything on the list this week, but I will keep working on what it will take to achieve the big items on the list.

    Maybe I’ll wait till after the 21st before I do my Christmas shopping though… just in case πŸ™‚

  2. Great list, Annemarie! One day, I’d like to publically share my bucket list (most I’ve already done)!
    Thanks for the inspiration! Dan
