Bucket List 2014

14 Jan

This past weekend I watched the movie Bucket List with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson. If you haven’t seen it, it’s a cute movie about two guys who wind up sharing the same hospital room and are both diagnosed with terminal cancer and have less than a year to live. Morgan Freeman starts writing down all the things he wants to do before he dies and together they do all the things they’ve always wanted to do. They skydive, race cars, and travel all over Europe.

Many people have bucket lists. Some are not so formal and some may never be written down. But my question for you, if you had 1 year left, what would you do? So instead of waiting, why don’t you do the things that you’ve always wanted to do NOW? Don’t wait for tomorrow because it may never happen. Stop procrastinating and create the life you dream about. Sunday I set out for a 14 mile run, took a Pure Barre class with friends, and had an amazing photo shoot for Refinery 29, grocery shopped, and went to church. Just because it’s Sunday, doesn’t mean I needed to waste the day away. Life is too short to wait for things to happen. 

Get off the computer and get living. Choose 1 thing that you’d like to do this year and sign up now. Be your best bodacious self and see what you are capable of. Hire an expert to make your life easier and to learn more. Don’t worry about failing. Get close to the edge and see what you are capable of. Below I made a list of some of the things I will do and some are items my friends have mentioned. Make your own list but hopefully this will get you started.

Become a sexy salsa dancer. Eat very clean and get crazy tight abs. Read 10 amazing books. Create an app for health and fitness. Create a training group for the Nike Half marathon and get the community involved. Volunteer. Spend more time with family. Spend more time having fun. Run an international marathon. Travel somewhere warm. Buy a vacation property. Find a special someone. Learn to blow glass. Create a men’s clothing line. Make an app big in the market place. Make time for you. Work out more. Take care of my health. Sleep 8 hours a night. Drink 8 glasses of water. Tell someone you love them. Let go of someone who is causing you pain. Let go of baggage. Pack your bags and travel. 

Make a list that is personal to you with a plan to achieve each goal. That which matters most should never give way to those things that matter least. This is your year so make 2014 your time to shine!


In Health and Happiness,
