Do you have a Bucket List?

I use to hear the expression, "Bucket List" for so many years but never paid attention to the meaning of it. After watching that great movie with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman a few times I started to think about mine. I really don't have much that I want to do but one of the things I did do that was on my list was learn to drive and ride on a Segway. I did that with my husband and girlfriend on the island of St Martin. We went on a cruise and it was my 70th birthday cruise and I was determined to try it. Of course I was nervous when I started and then the instructor could not get me off of it. Even at this age I am planning on trying things I never did. How about you, are you ready to try something you never did?

I really don't have a list of what I want to do. However, I do have a list of places I would like to see. Hawaii is on the top of my list. My grandmother often told me that we would go there on vacation, just the two of us. Sadly, that never happened.

@ElusisveButerfly That is sad. When you do go, take a few moments to talk to her. She will hear you.

There is not too much I would try at 46 that I have not in my younger years. I am not into anything that much.

@Sharon I am going to be 74 and I am still ready to try anything and almost everything. When I am ready to leave his world I am going out trying something I like. I will not be a hermit. My mom had a stroke when she was about 75 and lived until she was in her mid 80's. Before that she use to sit on a chair in the tv room and watch tv. I will not live like that if at all possible. I would rather got out trying something than to wither away on a chair.

Awesome! I am way too scared to take a cruise, so good for you. I have a bucket list but it's not written down, not on paper. I would like to drive to the west coast. Maybe I will wait for retirement for some of this stuff, as getting time off work is so difficult. I would like to drive out to the west coast and drive down the California coast, highway 101. That is like my dream. I also would like to travel basically anwyhere and everywhere else. That's it for me, I think. lol.

@maezee What are you afraid of in going on a cruise? Did you ever hear that a person should face their fears and then the world would be yours? I forget who said that but I like it. I have a few things to face too. I think everyone does.

I don't have a bucket list as such, but if anything new comes along that I fancy I would certainly try to do it.

@Jabo That's the spirit. We won't know if we like something or not unless we try it.

Well that is a start @whiteream . As you get older you can always add to it. Someday you might see someone or something and say you want to do that too. Add it to your list.

@ramapo17 My wishes have always been small that is just the way I am. I am sure there will be more as I get older only 41.
