Bucket List

This was written on Jan 1, but just now posting it….

In the late 1990s I created a file on my computer called “100 Things” – basically what is now called a “bucket list”. I decided to throw it away today. No, I didn’t finish everything on it; instead, I realized a list is about the goal rather than the journey. It really doesn’t matter whether I do all the things on my list or not. What matters is the process of trying to do them, who I meet along the way, and how we are both changed by it. The list itself can easily begin to look like the mile markers on a race course and life is not a race.
