Have you ever volunteered in a position that you feel honored to do so?

I am a volunteer for the Denver hospice.  I sit with patients who are in their 11th hour.  Another way of saying that, is, they are the patients who are  ‘actively dying.”   – which has brought me to the thought of why not start your bucket list ideas?

What a privilege it is to be able to volunteer with these special people.  I don’t do it often, maybe once a month but I look forward to it when my commitment day is approaching.  It is only a four hour shift and the time goes by so fast. 

Usually I will schedule on a Sunday morning when it is quiet.  Most family can’t be there that early for many reasons.  So, at least someone who cares is with them for a short time, even if not family.

By being able to do this volunteer work, it has helped me realize that our time here is precious.  I sit wondering if this person in front of me has been able to do everything they ever wanted to do.  Do they have regrets?  Remember the movie, ” Bucket List”?  I think there is a lot to be said for creating bucket list ideas.  I decided to come up with my own.

So, why not start your bucket list ideas?

I am sure I sit with many who may have regrets about the things they did not do when they had the chance or did not do because they thought they had more time to accomplish certain things.  You see, there are people of all ages in the Denver hospice.  They have had a baby 14 weeks old to people in their 20’s, to people in their 80’s and 90’s. 

Why Not Start Your Bucket List Ideas?

Since we never know when our time is going to come, why not be more proactive and start your own bucket list ideas now.  Time is going to pass whether you do it or not.

How great would it be to come to the end of your life and know in your heart you did everything you desired to do!  You loved and were loved.  Everything you did mattered to someone.  No regrets whatsoever!  I am sure that rarely happens!

When you were young, you thought you had all the time in the world. As you got older, did you start thinking, “where did the time go?”  No matter what your age, start your bucket list ideas.  It will give you clarity and show you what is really important to you.  Your ideas  may give you incentive to strive for more depth and more memory moments  for the rest of your life.
