All of us think of things we would like to do before it is our time to leave this Earth. Some people call it a "bucket list," but it is simply a list of things we wish to accomplish so we can say we lived with no regrets. A lot of the things we choose are for our own benefit or amusement. Many others are things we would like to do to help someone else in order to make this world a better place and hopefully leave a positive legacy. Here are 15 things you need to do to say you lived a complete life. Start checking them off before you lose the chance forever!
1. Fight For What You Believe In
We all see events around that world we believe are unjust and deserve our effort. Help the world by finding a cause and dedicating your time.
2. Learn To Surf
Whether you try it once or it becomes a huge part of your life, surfers describe the feeling of riding a wave as being one with the ocean.
3. Donate Blood
This is something you can cross off your list tomorrow if you simply take the time to drive to the blood bank. It could save a life.
4. Frolic In The Rain
Unless you're in the middle of a record-breaking drought, the next time it begins to pour, put on your galoshes and prance in some puddles.
5. Hang Out At A Senior Center
There are thousands of elderly folks who would absolutely adore the company of a younger person. Sharing stories for an afternoon can brighten someone's life.
6. Adopt A Pet
There are so many poor animals in need. You may discover that the one thing you were missing in your life is a dedicated companion.
7. Habitat For Humanity
It only takes at least one day to be able to build a home for someone who doesn't already have one. Give the gift of four walls and a roof to someone in need.
It has to be one of the biggest things people fear trying, but if you have never felt the feeling of freefall, then it is time to take the plunge.
9. Attend A Music Festival
You have plenty of options to fulfill this incredible life experience. It's the perfect opportunity to meet new friends and see many of your favorite bands.
10. Take A Vacation
It might sound weird, but there are a lot of people who have never left the confines of their hometown. It's imperative to explore this gigantic globe once in your life.
11. Drive The Pacific Coast Highway
All you need is a vehicle and some gas money, and you can cruise one of the most breath-taking scenic roads in the world.
12. Discover Your Passion
Most people go through their life working a dead end job day-to-day. Find out what you love doing and you might discover your life's purpose.
13. Backpack In Another Country
You would be surprised at how inexpensive some countries are. When you're roughing it at a campsite or in a hostel, nature doesn't require much in your bank account either.
14. Love Someone And Receive Love From Someone
It seems like such a minuscule thing and a lot of us have people in our lives that we love. Go out and find someone new to love because it will just perpetuate more love.
15. Pay It Forward
We all have people in our lives who have done something nice for us when we needed it most. It's time for you to do the same for someone else.
