I am not sure where to go with this, but I am having tremendous difficulty making a bucket list. I am happy with my weight loss so far. I am down 33 pounds from last January and have just a few more to go. I am confident I will reach my goal but am not stressed about it. As I read and re-read Chapter 9m though, and it asked for a bucket list, I don't know where to go with it. I've read the helpful hints and ideas. I'll soon be 61. I have no desire to para-sail or make a million dollars. I like my job and the people I work with. I am happy with where I live (in between offspring) and don't really plan to make any major changes in my near future. Maybe in the next 9 years when I am able to retire, but not now. I have had many opportunities that the average person hasn't had and am content to be where I am and doing what I am doing. I believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, so look for the day when He returns or takes me home, whichever comes first. I have long ago given up other kids of dreams. It was very difficult for me to make the motivation poster. I love my children and grandchildren, but my weight loss was for me and if I die tomorrow, that's fine with me, too. I am content here or in heaven, wherever God wants me at any given moment. So how do I write a bucket list when I have no burning desire to do anything I haven't already done. That said, I will happily go and visit grandkids, but that's not a bucket list kind of thing. Any ideas, anyone??
