My Bucket List

Inspired by Sadje’s What do you see #120

items on lists are meant to be checked off
yet life has its own agenda

our youth is filled with dreams
while reality wants to bend us into conformity

experience taught us to balance
as best as we could

so now…

our wants exceed the time we have left
and our needs take precedence as we age

  1. I worked for a veterinarian who had a 40th birthday and went into a little depression – he said that he had thought that he’d have accomplished more by the time he was 40… Yet he was very successful, had a prestigious job, a wonderful wife, 2 very smart and successful daughters, and he felt life had passed him by… it boggles my mind.
