Everyone has a list of random things they want to do in life. Things they want to experience. This is most often called their ‘Bucket List’…. the list of things they want to do, see, experience, accomplish, etc before they die. My curiosity is, How many of us actually do those things before they die? How many really take the time to live their lives to the fullest extent they dream of? And what really stops them from marking things off that list?
I have a very long and somewhat insane Bucket List of my own. Most of the things would take serious planning and money. That’s my excuse for not marking things off… I’m lazy. I just don’t take the time to really think out what it would take to accomplish my goals and i don’t take the time to plan or save for them. It’s sad really.
But what I’ve found to be sadder today is that not only to people (including me) not complete their Bucket List, most don’t even take the time to consider the type of Legacy they leave behind. What does your life say about you? What does your life tell the next generation? What will you be remembered for? These are all questions I have been asking myself…
Maybe its time I… WE… stop dreaming dreams and start living a life that will leave a Legacy… one that will make a difference… even in the life of one person.
Think back to people who have come before you… What do you remember most about their lives?
How will you leave your mark on the world?
(Part 2 Coming… It will be my own response to these questions…Stay tuned)
