This is a reprieve of what it means to be successful. Sometimes we just have to do things to make us feel like we’ve accomplished something for selfish reasons. It’s to revive us and motivate us to keep going on. So, when I saw this prompt, I had to do something.
We all want to travel the world, experience new adventures, attempt new skills, or whatever, which we add to our ‘bucket list’ of things to do before we die.
I don’t plan on dying anytime soon. But, here’s the top 10 things I’d like to do that doesn’t have anything to do with success, but just a sense of accomplishment, that I’ve finally know what that’s like moment. Here it goes:
1. Travel the world.
2. Try a dish from each country around the world.
3. Ride in a Ferrari
4. Go Whale Watching.
5. Drive from San Diego to Alaska
6. Ride in a limo down the Las Vegas Strip
7. Go snow skiing and then swim in the Pacific Ocean in the same day.
8. Go on a cruise.
9. Go parasailing
10. Hold a million dollars in my hand.
**11. See a Duran Duran concert.**
I was soooo in love with Simon Le Bon when I was in the 5th-7th grade. Every song of theirs and the stats of each band member was memorized. I’m sure that if the internet was up and running during those days, I’d be on their website, daily. I even got in trouble for calling their ‘976’ number and charging up my parent’s phone bill. Pictures of them donned my bedroom wall.
Now that I think about it, the concert wouldn’t be to stalk them or to relive my childhood, but allow me to see first hand the group that introduced me to other great musicians, got me into dancing, and allowed me to be my own person.
