The movie really got me thinking: When we are small, we always have big dreams about the things we wish to do when we grow-up. However, when we actually grow up, we become so engrossed in our day-to-day lives, with its drudgery, that we actually forget about our list of "Things To Do". Why is it that only when we are convinced that death is imminent, do we actually want to live? We all know that death is an inevitable part of life, but why do we need to be reminded of that in order to make life a worth-while experience?
Here is my list of the Top 10 Things I Wish To Do Before I Die:
- Travel the world.
- Teach - I feel the true purpose of everyone's life is to touch the lives of others in a way that could never have been achieved before, and teaching/educating children is my way of achieving my purpose of life!
- I have always wanted to do something about social and world issues. I wish I can fulfill this desire someday.
- Fall in love...just once with the right person!
- Be happily married!
- Live in a place far away from the hustle and bustle of city-life - preferably, by the sea. But I do wish to have access to all the modern amenities!
- Be a successful psychologist.
- Learn to cook.
- Get rid of my acrophobia.
- Take up writing professionally.
