I once made a list of 40 things to do before I was 40 because it was all the rage at the time and I had nothing better to do with my spare time...
I'm almost 31 now.
In 2006, forty seemed like this far off and distant place that I had all the time in the world to get to. Now forty seems a hop skip and a jump after dinner gets done tonight. Time flies when you have kids...and priorities change.
Some of the other bloggers out there have been making "bucket lists" like in that movie... a list of things to do before you die (sounds morbid).
I know I'd wait until the last minute to do it... I'm a procrastinator like that. You'd find me on my death bed with a web page up trying to figure out if there was anything I could knock off the list without hurting myself.
What to do? What to do?
I want to make a list... but not a list before I'm 40 or a list before I die not a to do list for life... more of an "if I had time" or "wouldn't it be bitchin if" list.
So I was talking to a girlfriend about getting older, growing up, trying out life in the hardest circumstances and about how much I miss margaritas when I am preggo and I happened to call it my "what if list".
People give what if such a negative vibe. But really, what if is just another statement of hope if you spin it the right way.
What if I did some stuff if the opportunity ever presented itself... wouldn't that be bitchin?
So I am going to work on a what if list... who's with me?
