The other day I asked my friend what was on his bucket list. He told me he wishes to live in a foreign country, go for sky diving just to mention a few. I know almost everyone has a bucket list. Actually there is even a book called ‘Bucket List Adventures’ written by Annette White. Yes it’s a big deal to have a bucket list. Some wish to travel around the world (I for one would like to do so with my best friend), some want to float on the Dead Sea (but I understand the smell there is awful), others want to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro (My girl is doing that come August. All the best!) And so on and so forth.
My bucket list has quit a number of things that need to be done and at my age I thank God I have actually done a bit of those things. I am however sadden by the fact that I won’t be able to tick off one of those activities since it’s no longer possible. I really wanted to travel to Paris France ‘the land of love’, and get a chance to attach a love lock at the Pont des Arts bridge and throw the key in the Seine river below. For the last five years couples had a chance to lock their padlocks with their name on them as a sign of committed love to each other. But with time this become overwhelming and it was seen as a danger to the bridge since part of it had collapsed due to the weight of the padlock. The bridge has now been replaced with painted panels such that no locks can be attached to them. This explains why I had to cancel that off my bucket list. But still planning to visit Paris though.
Recently one of the best things happened to me, giving me a chance to tick it off my bucket list. I swear this was one of the most amazing things I have ever done since I turned a year older. You know one of those things that you want to happen to you so badly, that when you get to have them, you do all you can to keep them? That is exactly what happened. It came at the right moment of my life and I still can’t believe that it happened. It taught me a lesson that no matter how long it may take to get that one thing you want so bad, as long as you work hard enough for it, it will eventually happen. All you need is faith and patience (a lot of patience).
Just to give you a hint, I had a chance to work with Jake Nava, http://www.cherrystudio.net/jake-nava.html . So what’s on your bucket list and what have you done so far? Share with the world.
