I do not have a bucket list. I cannot think of anything that I just have to do before I die. I wouldn’t consider myself a very adventurous person either. I'm actually pretty boring. I mean, I have friends who have jumped out of perfectly good airplanes, gone hang gliding, and snorkeling. None of those things appeal to me. I still haven’t learned how to swim … partly because I have a fear of drowning and partly because I just don’t want to.
That is what it pretty much comes down to … deciding what I want to do and doing it. I’m telling you the older I get, the more this has become a theme for me.
I do what I want.
My kids are grown. My bills are paid and as long as I’m not hurting anyone … I will continue to do what I want. There is something so freeing about knowing that you can do whatever you want. No limitations. No excuses.
I can hop on a plane and spend a week in Hawaii all by myself.
I can quit my good Corporate job and open a business.
I can compete in a Figure Competition as a 50-year old and win the damned thing.
At the end of my life, I will not look back with regrets. I will not wish there was something I would have done. Because as long as God allows me to exist in this life, I will continue to do what I want.
