And then, since we are all surviving so much longer... there is the BUCKET LIST... stuff we want to be sure to do before we die...
Survive and Thrive: Stubbornness Doesn't Pay
Know how some people 'refuse to be sick'? I am one of these—I don't give into small bugs, I don't take sick days, and I refuse to let stuff get me down.
Those of you who have been around a while may remember my aunt passing away in 2012. She was only 60 and had cancer of both colon and uterus, but based on family history, I suspect she had colon cancer first—a cancer that can be cured if caught early. There was some investigation into a syndrome, which she was negative for (thankfully), but (also thankfully) sent me to a genetics counselor for advice on how to look into my own risk.
It has set me on a course of earlier and more frequent screenings for colon cancer—something that short of the information about my family I might have resisted. And already those screenings have found and allowed for removal of 'something suspicious'.
So what I'm saying is LOOK AT YOUR HISTORY. If you know what runs in your family then you can identify if you are a case where “run of the mill” is too little.
And with All this Extra TIME.... Let's figure out what we want to DO!!!
I've done most of the physical stuff, so most of what is on my list is stuff I want to SEE, which means I am going to SHOW you... Here are the highlights of my Bucket List.
|A slow tour all the way around the Meditterenean|
|Angel Falls Venezueala|
|An Ancestral trip (including Norway and Sweden)|
|A UK trip of all my favorite stuff... (Monty Python, Harry Potter, etc.)|
|Private Writing Retreat with a couple of my buds|
And then there are a couple things way out of my control that I REALLY REALLY want to experience:
Having a runaway best seller and having a book made into a movie.
