My version of things to do before you die…
1. STOP reading posts like “10 things to do before you die!!!”
Seriously?! 10 things to do before you die… Like what? Jumping out of a helicopter to snowboard down the Everest? What if you’re in a wheelchair? What if you hate snowboarding? What if you don’t have the budget to pay that kind of thrill… it’ll S-U-C-K, big time! Basically, who cares about what others may find Sooooooo important to do before they die that they have to write a blog post about it. They’re not you, and you’re not them.
2. Write your own list of things you want to do in your LIFE!!!
Why not?! That would be a great way for you to pin point exactly what you wish to accomplish in life. What thrills, trips, goals… And why not write “10 (or more) things I want to do in my life” and not “before I die”… sounds better, more positive and less “OMG we’re all going to die!!!” Just saying.
3. Be positive.
Positive attracts positive. True fact. And you’ve guests it, negative attracts negative. So unless you’re a vampire or a zombie, I don’t see why you would want your life to be filled in negative thoughts and actions. I know it’s cheesy, but everything happens for a reason, even when bad things happens. Look on the bright side, at least your alive to go on with your list of things you want to do in your life!
4. Stop whining. Act. Now.
Seriously! Stop with the whining!!! I know it’s hard, I know you’re stressed out, I know your tired or whatever, so what?! Doesn’t stop the sun to rise every morning. So stop complaining, get up and do something about it!
5. Introspect every now and then.
This is something I do quite often, you don’t have to, it’s just a suggestion. I find it’s good to look inside every now and then and think about where I am in life, who I am and how I am. Make a few changes, evolve into a better human being. It’s like my spring cleaning, but for my soul.
6. Respect yourself.
So so so important! Did you know that YOU‘re the most important person in your life, ever! Learn to say “no” if you don’t want to, listen to yourself, what you want. Who cares what others may think, what’s important is that you are comfortable with your decisions and actions.
7. Laugh more.
I won’t explain this one so much… duh! Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha… Mouahahahahahahahaahahahahaha… AAAaaaaahahhahahahahahahaahahaha… Hihihihihihihi… HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
Love yourself. Love others. But yourself first.
9. Forgive and forget.
Why keep a grudge against someone? What’s the use? It just keeps a negative ball of hate inside you… and for what? She stole your boyfriend? So? Get over it! Just means that you guys weren’t meant for each other.
10. What will you leave behind you when you’re gone?
Who will be at your funeral? What will people remember about you? How will they talk about you?
Okay okay, I know I wrote in #1 to STOP reading posts like “10 things to do before you die!!!”, and I did, I wrote one. And of course I would be more than happy for you guys to read it, even if I said not to. You can stop after this one. Haha! But no joke, it was more my reaction of all the Facebook sharing of posts like that. So don’t try to be someone else, to do what the mass says to do, just do what you want to do and stay yourself! :)
