Do you have a bucket list? Do you know what a bucket list is? For those that don’t know what it is…I’ll explain. A bucket list is a well a list…but it is a list of things you want to do or accomplish before you die…or kick the bucket as they say.
Over the years, I have made a list of things that I wanted to do. A few things from my list are sky diving, whale watching, snorkeling, and riding my motorcycle on Highway 101 on the Pacific Coast. There are some other things, some which are private, and some are trivial, and some as mentioned above that are bold and take courage.
Earlier this month I was in Ixtapa, Mexico on a business retreat, as a story teller/speaker. It’s was a most awesome time…more on that later. As a group we chartered a catamaran to go snorkeling. I had already checked off the snorkeling 2 years ago on this same retreat. And let me tell ya, that took courage…that story I will save for another day. On our way out to the cove where we would be snorkeling, someone thought they saw a whale or something way off in the distance. We all laughed and joked telling her she was seeing things. Well as luck would have it, while we were heading back to the resort, sure enough there was a pod of whales. And they were breeching not too far away from the boat. It was so amazing to see…and deepened my desire to take an actual tour/trip to go whale watching…I am hungry for more.
Now I can check that off my bucket list…not that I won’t do it again, but for now it has been checked off. Do you have a bucket list? I’d love to know some things that are on your list.
