Life List

I love lists.  I literally make them for everything; what I’m going to eat, what I’m up to, what to do when I get home.  I find they make me more productive and constructive, especially around exam time.  So yesterday, I attempted to embark on making a ‘Life List’.  Everything I want to do, everything I want to acheive.  I’m pretty sure God was laughing his socks off.

So I sat there with a little notepad, thinking about all the things I’ve ever wanted to do.  Hell, I even looked at some ‘Things to do before you die’ websites.  Go skydiving, drive across America, go in a hot air balloon, run a marathon … the list goes on.  Sure, they all sound incredible and I would love to feat all of these at one point or another.  But then I got thinking.  What about all the things I have done?  I have a different Life List, I have a list of achievements.

I’ve had my portrait painted, been in a music video, seen a lunar ecplise and swum with dolphins.  I’ve road tripped across Canada, slept under the stars, sung in front of a huge audience and been to every continent except South America.  I’ve lived hard in my 18 years, I live hard each day.  So what have I learnt from this?  Sure, make a list of things you want to do, but even better – make a list of things you have done.  It’ll inspire you to do more, to seize the day and fall in love with life again.  What are we waiting for?!

  1. Antartica doesn’t really count as a continent, there’s no land mass, only ice. But I have flown over it!
