Life is short. Yet, the world is such a big place with so much to do! Most people think of things they’d like to do but they don’t even make a start on their bucket list. Other things get in the way and they just don’t ‘get around to it’. I don’t intend on being one of those people! Here are 10 things I’m going to do before I die:
Compete in a Bodybuilding Competition
No, I’m not planning on getting as big as Arnie (that’s not even possible naturally, but that’s for another blogpost). Bodybuilding and its competitions come in many different shapes and sizes. For women, there are two most popular competitions; figure and bikini. I plan on competing in the bikini division, starting next year. I’ve been training with weights for a while and I love it so much that I’d like to do something like this. Even if nothing comes of it, just to say I’ve done it!
Take Part in a Boxing Match
My grandad was a boxer and I’ve always loved watching it. Two of my favourite films are Rocky and Million Dollar Baby! My mom always told me I’d mess my face up if I started boxing, so I never really looked into it. However, I know it’s possible to take part in charity matches, so I think I’ll sign up for one of those. I always think about what my entry music to the ring would be, but it changes all the time.
Travel the World
This could be a blogpost all on its own, but I definitely want to travel the world. Most of it, anyway! I want to take part in wildlife viewing, mountain climbing, and plain old partying. I want to sample the delights the world has to offer, and all of the different cultures.
Learn to Play an Instrument
Even if it’s just the ukulele, I want to learn to play an instrument. When I was younger, I had a guitar. I had lessons during primary school but stopped when I moved to high school – my reputation was too important to me and I thought people would laugh. I wish I hadn’t cared, but I did. I definitely want to be able to play something.
Speak Another Language
I can speak bits and bobs of other languages, but nothing major. I did German at school and was OK at that, and my step dad is Italian so I know bits of that. I’d love to be able to hold a conversation!
A Sky Dive
Sky dives look absolutely terrifying, but I can imagine how exhilarating they’d be. I know people want to do them again afterwards, so this is something I’d have to force myself to do!
Ride in a Hot Air Balloon
I think this would be a nice, relaxing way to enjoy a spectacular view.
Write a Book
I’ve always loved writing. When I was little, I used to write poems and short stories. That’s something else that stopped when I started high school. I just know I’m capable of writing a brilliant story, so I will write a book!
Go Scuba Diving
There’s a whole different world under the sea, and I want to see it!
Create my Ideal Life
There’s so much more I want to do before I die, but I’m determined to create my ideal life. I won’t let fear hold me back from doing certain things. I might not know my life purpose, but I’m going to enjoy the journey as I find it!
