We all have a bucket list in our minds that we’ve thought about from time to time, but never actually considered trying to check them off. Come on people. We live on this earth for a very brief period of time, and we desperately need to break out of this shell we call routine. I’m not talking about going on vacation for two weeks a year. I’m talking about getting out there and doing it. Jesus said that it’s very difficult for the rich to make it to heaven. Look it up. That’s a legitimate quote. So let go of the illusion that money will fix our problems. These are just a few things I think everyone would love to do before they die.
I know for a fact that everyone fantasizes about this. I mean it. Every. Single. Person. I’m sure you’re thinking about how true this is right now. So it’s time to go out and do it. Whether it be hang gliding, riding in a plane or a chopper, or sky diving. There are even people that strap themselves to the top of planes, and then just feel the rush of wind in their hair as their body starts pumping adrenaline into their system. If you don’t want to because you’re afraid, maybe that’s another illusion you need to let go of.
Travel to the Shaolin Temple
Shaolin monks are the most disciplined peoples in the world. Their entire lives are dedicated to the strictest lifestyle there is. They will take anyone and everyone in, for a time, allowing them room and board, all in the name of the learning of Kung Fu. The monks do not believe that Kung Fu is a means of fighting, but a way of extending ones life. Maybe this is not your thing, however. If this is so, I highly recommend you get out of the country at least once in your lifetime. Be somewhere else for a change.
Write a book
I truly believe that everyone on the planet has something within him or her that the world needs to hear. Maybe that thing is a thought, a motto, a belief, it could be anything at all, but God wants you to get it out there. One of the best ways you can get your thoughts out there is to write it down. Whether it is memoirs from a journal or just a fantasy/sci-fi novel. We want to hear what you have to say! So say it!
If you do all of these things, you will be well on your way to making your life a bit more fulfilled, and if nothing else extremely interesting. Trust me. It’s time to let go and do these things.
