Recently I was given some bad news.
Im going to have to get surgery on my hip.
Which really is a bummer because I was just looking into creating my new bucket list or more what I am now calling my “Liv List”.
My Liv List is similar to a bucket list but I like the new name I was shown for this Youtube™ video about becoming a LIV Promoter which means you help people create rich experiences through adventures and not waiting for retirement to start “living”.
Personally, I always thought that I would be able to travel and do things when I got older.
While I may have the financial means to do so now, at 58, my problem is my physical health. I dont exactly feel like a little kid again…
So, with the recent news of my hip surgery Ive began to be more mindful of my food choices, committing to be for “function focused” on my movement exercises, and have started to list out my Liv List to begin to check off one fun experience at a time.
It wont be easy but it will be worth it.
My fear is looking back 5 years from now and not have gotten any better or worse moved backwards in my pursuit of living a better life.
I want to connect with family and friends more often, I want to learn new hobbies and see new things.
One of my long time goals, and top of my Liv List,
was –I mean IS– to visit the African Safari and photograph the amazing great plains of the Savannah with all the amazing Lions, Elephants, and Antelope roaming the vast lands free to do what they please in perfect harmony (omg that jingle is now stuck in my head lol)
It wont be easy but it will be worth it. Im just going to focus on taking it one day at a time and enjoy the journey.
I encourage you to do so as well.
let me know in the comments what is your Liv List?
