A Blog A Day

It\’s a blog where I write about the extraordinary and the ordinary things going on in my life.

My Bucket List

I just saw the movie Bucket List. It seems an interesting idea. I don’t know how long I’m going to live. Hopefully, I’ll die old. I’m still thirty but it’s not too early to start my own bucket list.

Ever since I became a Buddhist, I’ve started to live my life to the fullest. I was depressed for most of my life. It’s about time I catch up with life.

I had dinner with two workmates last night. They seemed stressed and unhappy with their personal lives. It was then that I realized how changed I am. Like them, I used to be so involved with my problems and worries. Then, something wonderful happened. I became a Buddhist. I’ve never looked at life the same way.

Most of the people I know are so involved with their own cares and worries that they have forgotten to enjoy and appreciate their life. Most people never stop and ask themselves what their purpose in life is. Most people have ignored the spiritual aspect of their life.For me, it is the most important thing. We must nourish our spirits for our physical body fades away.

I know I’m going to realize my dreams within my lifetime. There’s no doubt about it. My conviction is to leave this world happy.

Here’s my bucket list:

-cook for my own family.

-tuck my children to bed every night.

I have been recommending a book called “My Stroke of Insight – a Brain Scientist’s Personal Journey” by Jill Bolte Taylor and also a TEDTalk Dr. Taylor gave on the TED dot com site. And you don’t have to take my word for it – Dr. Taylor was named Time Magazine 100 Most Influential People, the New York Times wrote about her and her book is a NYTimes Bestseller), and Oprah did not 4 interviews with her.
