Never have I ever

This prompt got me thinking. I've done a lot of things in 49yrs , still there are many things I haven't.

I fear creating a bucket list more then ever now, after three wire bristled brushes with cancer in three years.

I did write about it just days after I started my first chemo cycle threeyears ago.

 How to create a Bucket List

It's a rusty fire bucket now !

Everyone supposedly has at least one thing that they would really love to do before they die. In theory , I know for me , it's Ah, the bucket list ...hey ! I don't want to even think about it

A LONG while back I started a 101 in 1001 days , it's really a list of goals. Unfulfilled in my case after too many years.

Think like the meme 101 things before I ..., 40 before 40 etc . I'm up to 50 before 50.

While I might not actively have a bucket list that I maintain or write down - I know there is such an incredible wealth of things I could try ...better to fail than never try.

No-one knows how long or little time we have here on earth ! I feel fearful and apprehensive now still facing uncertain prognosis . Talking about my mortality does my head in , my friend Meg. passing away last week from the same malignant sarcoma and genetic disease (NF) as I have and now my young uncle in his 50's receiving devastating news of his cancer's return.

Still a Bucket list is an ingenious way to motivate myself to get the most out of life.


To not to let it all pass me by, to make me feel that I can accomplish and experience something in this wonderful life. I know I don't want to be too lazy or chicken to try things just because I might fail.

This is not my bucket list , just a random list I found on google.
