"Seeing" things a little differently
Everyone has a “Bucket List“, you may not know it, but you do…. This term refers to the things you want to do, people who you want to meet or something you need to finish before you bite the dust. My bucket list seems to be getting bigger by the hour. I keep thinking of things I want to do. This list includes taking several exotic vacations, experiencing feats of super power magnitudes and learning new talents.
In contrast, some of the most important bucket list items include getting that extra hug and kiss from my Grandchildren, telling those closest to me that I love them, never taking people for granted or maybe just the smell of that perfect cup of coffee early in the morning. A goal that I have set for myself is to always live in the moment. I mean “this” moment….yes, this one right this very second. It can be hard to do sometimes, we tend to get caught up in the routine of things and just walk through life as if it were a movie we’ve seen a hundred times.
Sometimes things will happen in our lives that will remind us to be more aware and appreciate life, such as the death of a loved one, sickness, or a traumatic experience. Eventually though, we get stuck in the routine again, in a heavy fog just going through the motions. I don’t want to be like that…..Life is passing by way to fast for me. I want to just taste every single second of what this life has to offer. I’ve seen the good and I’ve experienced some of the very worst of life, but I’ll take it…..one breath at a time!
