So this past weekend a few girlfriends and I had a little night in to watch a movie and see Lindsay Lohan
screw up host SNL. After looking through our choices for a good ten to fifteen minutes, we finally decided on The Bucket List starring Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson (two of my favorite actors, by the way). What struck me the most about the movie had to be the idea of not knowing when one will pass away because let’s face it, it could happen any day.
Now I am not trying to be all dark and stuff, trust me. My point is that the movie makes you look at life and how we all need to go after the things we yearn to do (within reason, of course). The phrase “live life without regrets” comes to mind. Many times when people start to think of their impending death they gravitate towards thinking of what they could have done or had wanted to do…yet didn’t do.
As cliche as it sounds, life is most definitely a gift. It is best to treat it as such and do at least one thing new every day that we live. Also, people could live more so without regrets if we all had more of an open mind and a willingness to do something out of our comfort zone.
So, here are a few things I’d love to accomplish before I leave this planet:
Go to Italy for the fashion and food.
Be in the front row at an SNL show.
Marry my best friend.
What are some things you would have on your “Bucket List”?
