Think about it for a moment. What’s on my bucket list and how will I go about checking them off. For most of us these are things that we've thought about doing for years. It’s not about doing stuff before you die but about doing things while you’re still able to do them. You're never to young or old to start. My mother once said "My mind tells me I can still run up those stairs but my body won't let me" Don't wait until your body says stop.
So why haven't you? What are you waiting for? An invitation? WELL HERE IT IS! Please join me in creating a life we are happy we lived, not a life that past us by. Join me in finally turning those “I want to do that” into “I've done that”.
Does this sound familiar? Q “So what did you do this weekend?” A “not much” Wouldn’t it be nice to say “I went there, I did this and I saw that” all with a great group of people that have the same lust for life as I do. How many times have you looked back on a day and realize that you wasted it away. Never able to get that time back again. Lets stop!
In addition to bucket list items, we will also be doing many other activities in and around the Toronto area to get us out of the house and meeting great people. biking, hiking, skating, tobogganing, movies, dinners, drinks, live music etc. etc.
Everyone has those grand bucket list items that cost a fortune to pull off, like setting foot on each continent or climbing the pyramids but what about the ones we can do right here in our city. There are items on my bucket list that cost nothing to do but I just haven’t done them yet. I want to!
This group isn’t so much about goals to be ticked off but an outline taking shape of a life well lived. What's the point of creating a bucket list if you're not going to take action in order to achieve it?
When I eventually leave this world I want to be known as the person who lived, not the person that died.
BUT I NEED YOUR HELP… On the signup page I will ask you what are 3+ things on your personal bucket list? Please don’t just put “a bunch of stuff” or “I’m up for anything”. The reason I’m asking is because I will be compiling the lists and coming up with some meetups that the group will actually want to do. Even if you want to learn how to ride a bike or how to swim or even keep a hoolahoop in the air, enter it. Someone else will certainly want to do it as well.
If you already have a list in your phones notes or a file on your computer email it to me. A link to my email address is on the main group page under my profile picture.
Thanks for actually reading this and not just hitting delete along with the other 10 new Meetup group emails you get on a daily basis. Hope to meet you soon. Peter.
