A lot of people I know do not really like to talk about getting old and finally “resting”. For many of them, the topic is simply morbid and they would rather not talk about it just yet. I felt that way too before, and honestly, even now… a little.
Lately however, I came to realize that time has flown so fast and there are still a few things I would love to do before I turn too old and grey. Someday soon, I know age will make doing some of these things no longer ‘acceptable’ or ‘feasible’ for one reason or another. Simply put, I know time will come when I will be too old to do the things that I love, things that I did not do before.
So here’s my bucket list, the things I would like to do before I die …
Sing again, and sing my heart out!
I don’t really have a lovely singing voice, but I don’t know why every time I see or hear someone sing, it makes me cry. I used to sing when I was younger but I stopped. I totally stopped. So I’m going to sing again, even if it means I’ll do it in the bathroom or while doing my laundry.
Personally, I don’t see anything wrong with dancing. But one can not dance alone. Today, I will not mind dancing alone.

Let me say it more through this:
Learn Martial Arts
This is one thing I would really really really really love to do! Maybe I can ask someone I know for help, a black belt in Karate who happens to be my classmate in the MBA Program years before and a good friend named Lourdz Abao. Lourdz, can you help me? But let me lose a few pounds for starters so I’ll be lighter when I come see you!
Write A Book … Or Books!
On what topics? One or two Children’s Bedtime Stories (I remember my Mama’s story about Edna). Ella and Tonton can help me with the illustrations. A few on Parenting and Marriage and Relationships. Maybe one about Motivation …
Well, for now that’s more like it. But I will surely add a few more to this list.
