Bucket List

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

I have been reflecting on the last 6 months and came to the conclusion that we are always going to have stressful situations come up. It is how we handle then that count. In January I was diagnosed with cancer. Thankfully I am cancer free today and more than ever realize how important a healthy lifestyle counts. I am currently recovering from my 4th surgery and hope last, when the idea of making my bucket list came up.

On my list first and foremost is getting and staying healthy. Oh I have fun things on it too, one of which is a walk across Mackinaw Bridge next Labor day and trips with my husband and enjoying my grand-kids, etc.

Thinks about what counts in your life and the think about how much easier those events will be when you are feeling healthier! You may want to start your own bucket list. Good luck my friends!

    Bucket list is an old, but Good idea. I'll start thinking about items for mine. #1) slender forever more. Pretty anemic sounding, but oh what a struggle it has been and is. 2) Visit my step children's new home. 3) I love my existence (except the pain) so much, that I can't think of anything better, plus having my family here more often. #4 Blasting myself out of my cosy nest to go to church, music group etc.

    80 years old, and loving my life.

    We did this recently at work as part of a wellness activity. The idea was, it wasn't all to be for items that would cost a lot of money such as wanting to visit remote and exotic travel destinations. We had to come up with 10 items which I actually found quite difficult. But once I made it more like fun tasks, or perhaps gave myself permission to take the time for wellness, it was a good summary. One of mine is scrapbooking hundreds of family photos. Our children are grown and I am just now organizing, cataloguing, and scanning their pictures so that they will know all the stories once they are older and more interested :o). It is very time consuming but an antique-dealer friend of mine says I am making memories, which is a nice slant on it.

    I hope your health stays perfect!
