That Very Thing


That very thing that you thought you would never do

The thing you thought would never happen, not ever to you

That thing you avoided and denied could come into your life

The one thing you swore never ever would cause you strife

It happened and it will again because you are only human

We all experience it at one level or another

Sometimes it’s harsh and at others quite barely there

Yet it is part of life so we know both the ups and the downs

So we know the happy times and the sad times

We have to experience one to know the other

Just like there are so many different people in this world

If we were all the same, what a boring world it would be!

So get out there and live your life to the fullest

Know that there will be ups and downs

Live and learn and keep going

Life is an adventure and is so worth living!


My List


Do you have a “Bucket List” of things you want to do before you cannot do them anymore?  I do!

I would like to:

  • Go to vineyards in Italy, Spain and France
  • Sing in front of thousands of people
  • Touch people’s lives in some great way
  • Make a difference in someone’s life
  • Write a great story
  • Do what I love
  • Travel around the world
  • Learn different languages
  • Achieve my ideal healthy weight
  • Do volunteer work
  • Help out a stranger
  • Publish a book
  • Conquer my biggest fear
  • Go on meditation retreat
  • Go on a cruise
  • Go to a costume party or masquerade

These are definite, and I know there are more.  Good start though, don’t you think?

How about you? Do you have a bucket list or a list of things you want to do?
