Bucket List

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams

Now I know this is a popular movie and everyone I know who has seen it loved it, but in thinking about the concept of a bucket list, I'm not sure it is such a good idea.

Okay, I admit it's late and I'm probably not making much sense, but I'm going to try.  I've always tried to be very in control, planned and proactive.  I like concise, efficient lists and you would think I would embrace having a list of the things I want to do before I die.  But the simple truth is, I don't. 

I could list places I want to visit and things I want to see, but I can't help but think I'd be missing an awful lot in the meantime.  See I've always believed that life happens in the in-between times.  Like "getting there is half the fun!"  For instance, this last February, my grand-daughter had a "commercial party" during the "Big Football Game," the name of which no one was supposed to mention!  She and her friends had a blast during the commercials of the game when they played a sort of scavenger hunt with a Bingo card and then rated the commercials on a ranking board.  (I think I remember that the Fed Ex commercial with the giant pigeons won.) 

So I think I'll pass on the bucket list.  I think I would rather enjoy the trip instead of bouncing from one item on my list to another.  I also get a kick out of the surprises that come bumping along the way, too.  What would life be without them?

I have to agree with you.  Half the fun is getting there.  We took a vacation once and only had one destination which was Corpus Christi.  We did not make reservations prior to leaving and figured we would just stay and do things along the way.  The kids still talk about that vacation and the fun things we found to do along the way.  It took us three or four days to drive from Dallas to Corpus.  Great post.  Great memories.
