10 Things to do Before I Die


I’ve already done a lot of what I would want to do in a lifetime. Frankly, I’ve also done a little bit of what I wouldn’t want to do.

But what about the rest of my life? What do I want to accomplish before I die? Perhaps my aspirations are boring. I know they’re mostly internal rather than things I can hold. You know something, though? I’m so okay with that.

Want to see more exciting ones? Go to
Ten on Tuesday to see others’ lists.

1. Outlive my husband by no more than a day.

2. Live to see my children as happy, safe and healthy adults.

3. Know and love my grandchildren.

4. Not actually have any grandchildren for at least 15 years.

5. Publish a book.

6. Publish another book.

7. Stay content with my life.

8. Act in ways which help people.

9. Inspire others to act in ways which help us all.

10. Have no regrets.

I am also hoping to write and publish a book.

My grandma came close to only outliving my grandpa by a day, but I believe it was closer to almost a week. They both had cancer...

Happy Tuesday!

7, 8, 9, and 10 are all in sync for sure. Noble goals all... well, I guess it depends on what type of books you plan on publishing. :)
