What are you doing with the rest of your life?

I watched The Bucketlist last night. Two terminally ill people played by Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman set out to do the things they always dreamed of but never did. Made me wonder why we would wait until we knew we were dying before doing the things we always wanted to do. I guess it our fear of death or eternal optimism that we will live forever helps us push out our goals and dreams. The reality is, we could be hit by a bus tomorrow or live to be hundred.

Not all of us would have the luxury of a rich benefactor. If given 6 months to live, I doubt I would be doing anything different, perhaps frantically reducing my debt. No luxury yaughts or climbing pyramids... just working to reduce my debt.

On a side note, if I could choose one physical character trait when I was born, it would not be to have the voice of Morgan Freeman or George Clooney. They probably would have been even be bigger stars on radio if television was not invented.

Back to my bucketlist...

BTW: George Clooney's Up in the Air was also amazing. What's in your backpack? Watch the movie to find out.
