Bucket List?

What happens if you don’t fulfill your bucket list?
Do you leave your life feeling as if your bucket is half full or half empty?
Why make a bucket list at all?

Personally I have never thought about a bucket list.  It seems strange to me that you make a list of things to do before you die. You could die tomorrow and what have you accomplished nothing. So why set yourself up for something that may never be possible.

Perhaps instead of sitting around making up a list of things you want to do which empties the bucket why not make a list of the things you have already done that will fill the bucket full of special moments in your life. Good memories are so much more important than something that may never come to be. I don’t think there is any thing wrong in dreaming but we must be realistic. Appreciate life for what we have and make realistic goals not yearn for things that are unobtainable. Live life and don’t work so hard that you miss it.
I am going to live my life to the following quote and start to fill my bucket.

Dream as if you’ll live forever
Live as if you’ll die today
