Have you ever challenged yourself to complete a certain task or feat by the time you were a certain age? Or maybe a few years ago you started adding tasks to your bucket list? This morning the thought hit me. Why do we have a bucket list? Do we need something tangible that gives us motivation to achieve?
What would it look like if we viewed each day as a “bucket list” day? What if we didn’t wait until we were 30, 40, or 75 to do something? What if we acted as if today was our last day? How would that change things in our lives? Would we live more, do more, love more, give more, serve more?
Beyond the bucket list, are other factors holding us back. Perhaps it’s apathy or a lack of motivation. Maybe it’s fear to do something different or take that leap of faith. Maybe it’s feeling there’s not enough time to do it today. Perhaps it’s not having sufficient resources to do it. Whatever your reason is for holding back and continuing to wait for THAT day to come, why not make THAT day, TODAY?
Tomorrow is not promised. So go ahead and make a decision to create the life you want now!
