She climbed it this weekend as part of her Life List. Remember that movie The Bucket List? Well Linda prefers to call hers a Life List. And climbing a tree while her body would still cooperate was near the top of it.
Now that we’re in our 50s, Linda and I have often talked about Those Things we want to do or do again at least once between Now and Then. It feels odd to be in the part of life to start thinking this way. I know a lot of people who are thinking this way though.
Some want to skydive. Some want to ride in a hot air balloon. Some want to finally get The Harley. Some just want to one day be able to go into the bathroom alone.
As we step into a new season, I’ve been thinking about my own Life List.
Last year I got to experience my #1. My NEW #1 is to travel the distance of the Blue Ridge Parkway in one trip. Doesn’t have to happen this year. I just want that experience, especially with my life co.pilot, Tom.
I have eight things on my Life List right now. I’ll name the next one after I’ve accomplished #1. That’s one of the many cool things about my Life List (and being over 50) – I get to make up my own rules.
Do you have a Life List? If so – what are you rules? And how’s the living part of your list going?
