Name ten things...


Wednesday, June 26, 2013

While on the treadmill cooling down today I was listening to Paul Baribeau's song named "Ten Things." If you haven't heard it before I strongly suggest you do! It's absolutely amazing. Thank you Mr. Baribeau for inspiring me to create my life lists. For the next few days I will create my lists of 10:



Name ten things you wanna do before you die and then go do them:
1) Achieve my health and fitness goals
2) Meet friends I've known for years and never met before
3) Go to places I could never even have imagined myself being
4) Learn to play the Ukulele, and eventually go back to playing the bassbone and tuba
5) Finish school
6) Make some new Old Friends.
7) Do at the very least a portion of the Appalachian trail with a great friend or two
8) Create a stronger bond between my sister and I
9) Find peace within myself
10) Be happy, in entirety.

10 Things by Paul Baribeau

name ten things you wanna do before you die and then go do them.
name ten places you really wanna be before you die and then go to them
name ten books you wanna read before you die and then go read them
name ten songs you wanna hear again before you die, get all of your friends together and scream them

because right now all you have is time time time yeah,
but someday that time will run out.
that's the only thing you can be absolutely certain about.

think of all the things that are wrong with your life and then fix them
think of all the things that you love about your life, be thankful you are blessed with them
think of all the things that hold you back and realize that you don't need them
think of all the mistakes you have made in your life, make sure that you never repeat them

because right now all you have is time time time yeah,
but someday that time will run out.
that's the only thing you can be absolutely certain about.

name ten thousand reasons why you never wanna die, go and tell someone who might've forgotten
try to list the endless reasons why it's good to be alive, and then just smile for awhile about them

soon the sun will rise and another day will come
soon enough the sun will set, another day will be gone

and right now all you have is time time time yeah,
but someday that time will run out.
that's the only thing you can be absolutely certain about.

    I really like this. I'm gonan go listen to that song right now. It also reminds me to get out my list and start checking some off. I've had it since I was 15 and have added and checked things off as I go along. Although some things just come off because well I no longer want the Rachel haircut from friends or to go to an N'Sync concert, lol.
Great job on your list. My only suggestion is to get more specific with #1. It's kind of vague so how will you know when you've reached it?
