It all started in 2007 when two men with terminal illnesses decided to live life to the fullest. They decided to make a list of all the things they wanted to do before they die. They called their list the “bucket list.”
“If we did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves.”
It is summer in the Philippines. In most parts of the world, summer comes on June, and June is just a few months away. Why not plan ahead (or in the case for the people in the Philippines: plan now) what to do for the summer? Why not make a bucket list?
“Bucket list” comes from the phrase “kick the bucket” which is an English idiom meaning “to die.”
A bucket list can be as long as that World History book in the library or as short as a single sentence. It all depends on its maker. Young or old, people have wishes and dreams. Why not write them down? The feeling of crossing a sentence out because he or she has finished or done that task is electric, as if one has accomplished something worth celebrating.
I have a bucket list of my own, a long list of impossibly possible goals that someday I will be able to accomplish. I wonder what your bucket list is like. Do you mind sharing?
