Best Check list of Top things to do, before the World Ends
What if all the hype, hoopla and predictions around the world ending on 21st December 2012 were actually to come true? Technically that would mean we are left with just a handful of days to live our lives. With such little time and so many unfulfilled wishes life could seem to go out of control and that's why we have compiled a list of top 10 things which you must do as part of your bucket list, before the world bids good bye.
This is perhaps one of the best and the first things you should do. Remember the names of all the people whom you have hurt in life, knowingly or unknowingly, and then go and say sorry to them. You will be surprised to find out how most of those people would forget about their pain and embrace you with a warm feeling. Not to forget the feeling of relief and calmness which you will experience.
Open up and confess your love to your family and friends and to that extra special person in your life. Send a note of thanks to people who have been there for you and hug your parents to make them feel that you care for them. If someone is miles and miles away from you then let them know that you miss them. Believe me folks, this mantra will add a new meaning to your life.
This is when technology should help you. For all those days in the past when you have felt lack of time to meet, greet and speak with people in your life, now is the moment. Pick up a phone and speak to your friends, spend time with your parents and family, video chat with your folks, share a smile, play with your kids, share bedtime stories with them, watch movies and talk to all those people who actually make your life worth living. Grab the power of technology and use your laptops, smart phones, iPods, tablets, home theatre system and everything which runs on technology and get closer to your loved ones.
Love food. Eat what gratifies your stomach, tickles your nostrils and melts on your taste buds. Raise a toast to the wonder called life and drink the best alcohol. Sing and dance with your friends and family and live those moments with all your heart. Wear your favourite dress, eat in your fancy dinner set and stay happy because tomorrow may not come.
Any wish which doesn't require much travel could be fulfilled now. Dive, jump, swing, swim, ski or surf. Just do it, if it has been there on your mind for a long time. Paint something, write a poem or go hiking. Idea is to fulfill the long cherished desire which you have been thinking of indulging into but strangely could never find the right time to do so.
5. Make Love, Not Babies
Make Love, not Babies
Get passionate, steamy, intimate and romantic to let your partner know how much you love him/her. The world might end in few days so remember to make love with your partner and not make babies. Better be safe than be sorry.
6. Soak Some Sun, Drench in Rain
Live in the wonderful moods of nature and feel the warmth of sunshine on your face and let the rain drops soothe your skin. Enjoy the smell of earth when rain drops fall on it and feel the morning dew drops. Remember that creating such pleasures is still beyond the control of mankind.
7. Get Married
Well this is exclusively for all those who have been in love for a long time but have not been able to decide when to get hitched. What better time than now to solemnize your vows and spend the best and rest of the days of your life with your partner.
8. Say No
This is the time when you need to listen to the call of your heart and say No to a boring job, a nagging boss, bullying mate, abusive partner and interfering relatives. Take charge of your own life and be its boss, for as long as possible.
9. Try Something New
Try Something New
Bring some newness into your life by tweaking just few things. Try a new restaurant or try eating meat if you are vegetarian. Try turning vegetarian if you dig on meat in each meal. Clean your house, do laundry, cook food or even learn to drive and play footy, if you have not tried any of these things in your life before. Come out of your comfort zone and enjoy the different aspects of life.
10. Face Your Fear
Face your Fear
Whether it's your fear for change, insect, height, space, number, walking, falling, putting on weight, growing thin or anything else just face it once again. You never know you may not get another chance to overcome that fear again in life. So muster your guts, hold your head high and conquer your fear.
