I don’t like working out in a gym because it feels so artificial – I’d rather be busting my butt on pavement in the sun than on a treadmill and pulling small bushes out of the ground than lifting weights (although I do lift hand weights while watching TV….sometimes.) I read Carolyn Hax, an advice columnist, because she gives great straight forward advice. One of her readers wrote this about “bucket lists” — you know, the things you want to do before you die. I couldn’t agree more:
I suggest you can make life your bucket list. Do something new every year and every year will be a gift of extraordinary value. So far, no one has told me that trying something new periodically is a lousy idea.
This is how I want to live my life. This year? Gardening and a cruise.
