The Bucket List……

This was a movie with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson and a very excellent movie at that, I would have to say these two are the best actors of my lifetime, they both have been in quite a lot of movies and this was the first I have seen them acting together. This movie is basically about two Gentleman who have cancer and one of them has a list of items to live out, before the cancer takes their life.

The Majority of us don’t even make out this Bucket list, or any list for that matter, we may plan things to do when we take vacation from our jobs, or maybe some day trips on the weekends, but a Bucket list? We may chat with others and say add that to my Bucket list, but why say it if we really don’t have the list? Maybe we want to portray to others that we really have this list and cross things off all the time, this only becomes another way for each of us, to simply portray a fake self to those around, instead of truly being who you are, it also is a way for each of us to put ourselves above each other, as all we do is compete on who has the best items on the list.

There is much more to life than writing things down on a list, if you do write things down on a list and live for doing them so you can cross them off, then everything else in life will pass you by, your focus will be on the list, instead of what is going on around you or even worse, you simply can’t see the true beauty of life as you walk your path of your journey through life.

To keep a Bucket list for some is a waste of time, cause only a few will be financially set enough to actually complete that Bucket list. It is one thing to write out a list of things to achieve, it is also another thing to actually have the money to achieve those things? The other good point of the Bucket list is, what happens when you don’t cross off everything on your list? This will lead us to feelings of inadequate, which will make our Society struggle even more than it does now, with low self esteem, depression ect…

When a Bucket list is looked at as being a motivator, I am all in. When just written and forgotten, then this list is just a list. with no promise and incentive to walk your path along your journey of life, while we enjoy all the true beauty that is around us and while we let our true selves shine brighter than all the stars in the sky.

Bucket list the movie is nothing but fantasy, it is still a great movie as Jack and Morgan played greats parts together, but I think we all should enjoy and live our lives, see the beauty of what is around you, instead of trying to live up to a list and becoming depressed, because you simply didn’t achieve everything on your list.

” Bucket list is a list we make of things we want to do in our lives, but achieving these items takes a bit more  time and money”

” We all walk a path along a journey of life, just simply look around you from time to time, so you can see the true beauty that is all around you”
