The past few years I have not had the energy or opportunity to live an adventurous life. My health journey has left me reflecting upon time taken for granted. Now as years and moments pass by, I realize that I dream to return to being adventurous. I want to enjoy life. I want to live in the moment. I'm tired of being told that I CAN'T do things. I'm tired of passively watching time disappear. I'm tired of being discouraged or constantly reminded of my limitations.
In these thoughts, I've decided to share my TOP 3 BUCKET LIST. I believe that all of them are in my realm of possibilities, or at least not completely impossible, IF I could just find someone that's willing to help me LIVE and of coarse have some improvements in my health. I accept that I would probably be required to spend weeks recovering from any one of these adventures and that the amount of time and energy devoted to any of the activities may be extremely limited. But wouldn't it be so worth it? Isn't that what life is about?
So what does my bucket list look like? Just take a look.
It would be an absolute dream come true and an unexplainable experience if I had the opportunity to spend time with Martin Truex Jr and Sherry Pollex. I admit that I am a huge fan for them on the racetrack, have been huge fan of his for many years beginning when he used to drive in the Busch series for Dale Jr. However, I have become inspired by them as people even more. Since Sherry's cancer diagnosis, their love for one another, their love for making a difference in the lives of others (especially children), as well as their NEVER GIVE UP mentality is so inspiring. Like my friends and me, Sherry and Martin Truex, Jr did not just sit back, grieve, and give up on life when times became difficult. They used the opportunity to raise awareness. They found strength in sharing their story. Whether it be on the track with near wins or the stress of chemo, they stood strong, never gave up, and are now able to bask in the glory of their rewards. Cancer free and a Coca-Cola 600 win! Yeah baby! I would love the opportunity to spend time with this amazing couple. Riding shotgun for a few laps, full speed, would without a doubt be a memorable and exhilarating addition as well!
Horseback Riding at Beach
I envision a nice relaxing time exploring the beach on horseback. Calm strolls along the shoreline and sprints across the sand. I would love to steal a small glimpse into Heaven while taking in the breathtaking beauty of a gorgeous sunset. Being one with nature. How romantic and awe inspiring it would be!
Water Sport Adventure day
This one is quite a stretch, I know. Health wise, this one would be the hardest to meet. But we never know what the future holds, right? Regardless it still finds it's way on my bucket list.
I honestly don't have a preference of where, but while there I would like to enjoy a sunset in a Hot Air Balloon floating over the majestic sea. Reliving my teenage memories of Jet Skiing would be awesome. But my number 1 action packed adventure would include FLY BOARDING! I don't know why I am so intrigued to try Flyboarding, but it definitely peaks my curiosity and captures the adventurous side that's hidden inside me.
