Bucket List

As I work on my fitness, I’ve decided that I want to live to be at least 100. It really started when I participated in a walk for the hospital and their slogan was “Follow me to a healthy 100.” It just struck me. What an accomplishment it would be if I could live to be 100 and not be only a half alive, dilapidated being. I could actually be there to see my grandchildren (something my grandmother was unfortunately not able to do).

But, if I live to be 100, what would I do? How could I fill up my years and make sure that they were worthwhile? A Bucketlist. It’s  at 100 things right now, but I don’t think any list should limit your possibilities. There’s always room for more.  If any are crossed out, it means I’ve done them 🙂
