We all have certain movies that can teach us something at one point or another. One such movie that taught me about living life to the fullest and taking ACTION was "The Bucket List".
The movie where corporate billionaire Edward Cole (played by Jack Nicholson) and working class mechanic Carter Chambers (played by Morgan Freeman) meet in a hospital.
Both men bond because of their common terminal illnesses and was told by the doctor that they do not have much time to live. Both made a list of what they want to accomplish before they leave the world. They decide to live their lives to the ultimate fullest.
They went sky-diving, tried high adrenaline race car driving, eat dinner at the most expensive restaurant in France, ride motorcycles on the Great Wall of China, visit Taj Mahal in India, sit atop the Great Pyramid and even sing their lungs out for the lions in African Safari!
Those few months they spent striking off the list, were the most wonderful moments of their entire lives!
A bucket list is a list of all the goals you want to achieve, dreams you want to fulfill, skills you want to learn and the experiences you desire to experience in your lifetime.
Before I watched the movie, I already have my bucket list, however, either I did very little, or did nothing to make those list of things come to pass.
After watching the movie, I reviewed my list, decided that I should get busy and take action in accomplishing those list of things.
Indeed, having a bucket list can be an interesting life changing evolution. You can be flexible and if some become irrelevant you can change it and add new things as they come along.
The beauty of having the list is that you will gain laser focus and have crystal clear clarity on what you want from your life - it is discovering your inner self!
The list of things can be as simple as watch the sunset or as adventurous as sky-diving, the idea is we need to start living for the present and have fun in the current moment. Do the things that you have always wanted to do, never forget to appreciate the little things that makes you smile and bring joy to your heart.
Have you started on your own bucket list? If you have, that's awesome! If you have not, it is never to late to start writing one today!
Enjoy your journey of creating, accomplishing and checking off the things on your list. Each time you have accomplished a goal on the list, be thankful the experience will definitely be exhilarating!
