Ever since “The Bucket List” came out in 2007, the expression has become as overused leverage, apples-to-apples and low-hanging fruit.
That said, I do live in the camp that believes anything that facilitates a semblance of self-awareness that allows us to really live is a good thing. Therefore, I can’t hate on the list. In fact, I made one.
For me, the key to said list is to ensure it continually evolves and continually challenges us at every turn. That’s what keeps life interesting…worth living. That’s what keeps us fighting against the Second Law of Thermodynamics–against the acceptance of entropy; the lazy satisfaction of what is simply comfortable; and against living life as though we are already circling the drain, descending softly into a slow death. This will be one of about a million times that I’ll refer back to Drew Dir’s Graduation Speech.
If you haven’t read it, you should. And if you don’t agree with it, you probably don’t agree with my point-of-view on a life worth living.
