For those of you who will be there, when we meet at Problogger in 3 weeks, I will be faring as a 43 year old.
I still stand by my philosophy that age is an attitude.
If there’s anyone to prove that to me, it’s my recently turned 80 year young mother.
(I’m banking on inheriting her flawless, wrinkle free skin)
Yet, it’s so simple to believe that we have ample time on this earth. What doesn’t get done today will happen tomorrow.
Or will it?
43 sounds seasoned. Mature, even. (Like how I’m steering away from the word ‘old’?)
And for all of the mishaps, there’s been many a conquered adventure.
Climbed the Great Wall of China on a blistering cold Christmas Day (WTF were we thinking??!),.
Slept head to toe, squashed in a lodge with a bunch of strangers, to wake up at some ungodly hour to climb the rest of Mt Fuji and be rewarded by a magical sunrise.
Somehow managed to overcome vertigo when scuba diving 40 metres through deep blue, almost space like water in the Philippines to discover a far gone yet amazing ship wreck.
I have still yet to tell the twinions that in the pristine waters of Okinawa, Mama found Nemo.
But shouldn’t there be more?
The wonderful thing about bucket lists are the infinite possibilities. It’s a free license to let you to dream big and crazy. Regardless of time, money and munchkins.
I figure with a birthday looming, now is as good as ever to undertake what would make my heart burst with high pumping adrenalin and my mind stay young and kooky.
As another ring grows around this tree, I share with you, my Bucket List.
Life is short. But long enough for second chances and rectify regrets. Nor too late to make a whimsical request for a bit of Ryan Gosling-ness. Ahems.
