This was an idea which came to me around my 30th birthday a few months ago – I was contemplating my life, what everything has meant to me and how I felt about getting older.
I thought – if I found out tomorrow that I only had 5 more years to live – would I be content with what I had done with my life? or would I be full of regret and sadness?
Death is something I have been very aware of, and have meditated on the concept for many years – I believe that if I was to die suddenly tomorrow I would be content with my life and the journey I have gone on.
However – there are so MANY MORE things I would like to accomplish, but most of those things are more about ADDING on top of an already worked on, content and happy life.
So I have made a list of extra things – which if I found out that I would die within the next 5 years – are MUST-DO’S for me.
- Go on Safari in Africa
- Go skiing in Japan & explore the amazing nature
- Take a train trip across Canada
- Go skiing in Canada
- Visit India, Iceland, Lebanon, Israel, Morocco, & China
- Go surfing in Hawaii
- Get a sleeve tattoo
- Have a child with Sofia.
- Build AsWeTravel HB into a multi-million dollar company.
- Buy a house in the mountains with a wave pool & ski resort.
- Complete the 30D-30L mission.
- Meet & have a moment of stillness with Eckhart Tolle
Well – that is my life to-do list – to be honest, I was a bit shocked to see that the list was so short, but like I said before, MOST of the things I want to achieve in this life are simply an extension of what I am already doing – pushing everything I do and everything I am to be better and better every day …
How about you? if you found out you only had 5 years to live, what would YOUR must-do’s be?
