BC Bloggers Meme : Five Things I Want To Do Before I Get Old

I have once read that if there is one thing that you really want to happen, you have to yearn for it to the point of even tasting it. That close. Think of it everyday while you continuously tell yourself it will happen. And to make it more appealing, add some color to it. Write about it, post somewhere you can see it everyday, add a specific timeline. Just do not be surprise once it hits you. As what they all say,
"be careful what you wish for, you just might get it."

These are just some of the things I want to do before I get old.

1. To learn how to swim and scuba dive.

2. To visit my one and only sister in NY and most of my relatives in CA where we can have a family reunion by having a musical concert spearheaded by yours truly. It will entail a lot of planning and hard work especially it will be my concert but in my family, singing even the impromptu way had always been effortless.

3. To travel to different places with my kids at least once a year.

4. To write a book for kids, even a novel that will be turned into a movie.

5. To be active in an advocacy that is close to my heart where I can encourage my kids and other people to join.


Come to think of it, I am already old. Perhaps that means, I do not have to wait that long.

  3. Thanks for reminding me that I have not gotten around to learning how to swim also.  Scuba diving is easy, according to some.  You just sink lol! That, I can do hahaha!  I got to smell the water (as you have suggested on the things we like to happen) and soon I'll be swimming hopefully

  9. my husband is a diver, I tried doing it once and I don't want to do it again. I know how to swim and diving seems fun but I just don't like being alert when you're underwater, I just want to wander and see stuff there. Not thinking about equalizing and looking after your dive buddy.

  10. Goodluck in writing your book, I always have many things in my mind that I want to do. It's also good to have a list of them and think of it everyday until it eventually happen.
