Hypothetical question…

If you were given the choice to know when (day or date) you were going to die would you want to know?

It may seem like a morbid question but I am curious. By knowing the day/date of your death would it change the way you live? Would you take more chances? Travel more? Act differently? 

I honestly don’t know if I would want to know. I think having that knowledge would scare me more than anything. But on the flip side I think it would push me to accomplish the things on my bucket list (the things I want to do before I “kick the bucket”)

  1. See the Great Wall of China
  2. See Niagara Falls
  3. See the Grand Canyon 
  4. Visit/tour the Napa Valley (and sample the wine!)
  5. Eat at Alinea (in Chicago)
  6. Scuba dive the Great Barrier Reef
  7. Ride in a hot air balloon
  8. Publish a piece of writing (I guess having a blog could technically count for this one…) 
  9. See the Northern Lights 
  10. Learn a new hobby or skill
  11. Take a spontaneous road trip

I’m sure everyone else has things like this on their bucket list… but in addition to the tangible things I want to accomplish there are a few abstract things I want to accomplish as well…

  1. Make a difference in the world 
  2. Be the change/or good in the world
  3. Encourage and teach strong girls to become strong women
  4. Believe and see the good in people 
  5. Have an attitude of gratitude
