5 Things I Want to Do Before I Grow Old

I always love lists. If you happened to read my previous posts, you would notice a few of them in list form.  That said, I still have not written my bucket list. I fear that if I make one, I will be forever putting an item into the list.

Not having a bucket list welcomes a lot of possibilities.


Thanks to Anne for suggesting this meme to BC Bloggers. In this way, I will have a simple bucket list.

Here goes my list:

1. Travel.

Travel opens my mind to different cultures, people and places. It is best to travel when my feet can still walk miles without much complaints from my body.

2.  Read.

I hope that I have read as much as I can before I grow old and before the eyesight fails me.

3.  Never stop learning.

Right now I am fascinated with typography. I hope I can design my own font one day.  I might be interested in something else in the future. I hope new things will continue to fascinate me.  I hope to never become an expert at anything.  Einstein once said, “Once you stop learning, you start dying.”


4.  I hope I will never forget this.

5. Ready to grow old.

I welcome growing old. As I step into each decade in my life, I feel that every decade is the best decade ever. I enjoyed my childhood, teenage years, young adult life and I am having a blast in my 30’s.  I am so looking forward to wonderful years ahead.

I wish I will be able to do this:


What is on your list?

  1. Great list. I like no.3 most… And of course get ready to get old..hmmm…

  2. This is a good list. Live deliberately!

  3. I love the last one. Often, we delay serving our Lord and are sidetracked with many other mundane things that currently occupies our microcosm. Serving Him gives me a sense of fulfillment and happiness. Thanks for sharing this short but profound list 😀

  4. Your list is general, but I can sense the passion in it.. I can sense that you have a fulfilling life.. Kudos to you! 🙂 Continue living THE LIFE! 🙂

    • I have my share of dark moments but the sunshiny ones offset them. Yeah, it is a fulfilling life. 😀

  5. I like that your every decade is the best decade ever. That’s the way!

  6. i hope i have time to read talaga these days, but i can’t. by the way, nice list there.

  7. Oh I just love that last quote. I hope to accomplish that in this lifetime. 🙂

  8. Such a simple but great list. All of which I relate to! 🙂

  9. I also would love to read more. Siguro I will have more time again when my daughter grows up and have her own private space.

  10. nice list! i love everything written here..:)

  11. such a great list! and yes to the quote on no. 4! 😀

  12. Gusto ko ang #5. minsan kasi may panahon na ayaw kong maging mature. that means I have responsibility. parang gusto kong bumalik sa carefree life. haha

  13. reading…don’t stop doing this. it will continue to make your mind younger. 🙂

  14. love your list!!
    i like most yung “replace the fear of unknown to curiosity. tama!

  15. love your list and my favorite is no.3 continuous learning is essential to making the most of what the world has to offer to us

  16. This could be my list too yet a number of five would be too short for me since there so many things I wanted to accomplish before i get old or before it would be too late 🙂 Nice list! happy blogging to you! Xoxo.

  17. Travel would definitely be on top of my list too.. And I will never ever stop learning new things. It does feel great. =)

  18. i agree on all esp on learning and reading kaya nga i stock books kahit i don’t have time to read saving for my retirement (early) hehe…

    nice reading and learning from all these bucket lists 😉

  19. Very inspiring post. I agree with everything especially with numbers 4 and 5. 🙂 Too bad I wasn’t able to join this meme. You were able to gather really good images, by the way~

  20. Here you are hoping to not be an expert and I’m hoping to be one as I can’t concentrate on just one thing. ( >.<)~

    Don't worry I'm sure there are a lot of things you'll be interested in the future. The things I love doing now are hobbies I never thought I'll ever be doing.

  21. I love to travel, before i go old i want to visit different places here and abroad.

  22. You have a great list here. I’d have to say number 5 is my favorite. I hope to waste nothing and use everything God gave me as well.

  23. I love your list! 🙂 Traveling is definitely on my list, books are there too.

  24. I like the 5th one. It’s exactly what I had in mind when creating my list. 🙂

  25. Indeed the best part of growing old is accepting the fact that we are ready to be old. That is the time when we can enjoy its perks. Your list is ok! it is simple yet clear That last picture is really a blast and if my time ended in this world I will gladly face the Lord and wait for his response saying “Well done my faithful servant”.

  26. Yes, Never forget! I love that quote.

  27. Ahh.. This is such a good list! 😀 I actually have the same list but “have a beautiful family” instead of number 2.. ^^

    • Good luck on the quest, Sumi. I already have a beautiful family. 😀 If I will be blessed with a family of my own, I will consider it a tremendous blessing. It is not something I want to achieve. However, I welcome it with a loving heart if it is God’s will. 😉

  28. The openness of what’s coming next is just awesome. Come what may eh?! But not that it’s imperative for us to identify things to be done before we get old, it’s just feel different also to have something to look forward too. Great list you have there!


    • Thanks! I believe God knows what we want before we actually ask for it so we just accept what comes our way. In my life, I always felt God’s love for me so I always look forward to what ever it is… with arms wide open. 😀

  29. Cool list. I think I’ll have these on my list too 🙂 To get ready to get old, before you get old made me think… Am I ready – physically and financially? And so this made me reflect that I should start today in preparing for the older years.
    Thanks for sharing.

  30. Nice selection you got there. I like the 1 to 3. Travel, Reading and Learning we all need that as we grow old.

  31. Your list may not include specifics but I get you, sister. Right on. 🙂 Dream, live, love, fly.

  32. Nice list u got here,.., deep but noble.. have a nice day!

  33. I have not made any list. But one thing I really want to do when I grow old is to find more people coming to church especially the little ones and me still there teaching Sunday School.

  34. We are in the same boat. I love your list especially 1 to 3. Live life to the fullest 🙂

  35. Nice lists. I havent got to link my post thru our host because of late posting. hehehe.

  36. I love your list. And I’m loving you blog too. Following you now! 🙂

  37. good luck to us, hopefully we can travel to any place we want before we get old 🙂

  38. I love to travel too when I can afford, but what specific places would you want to conquer apart from local tours?

    • I want to go anywhere, everywhere. As far as I can. Top of my head right now: India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Italy, France, Maldives, Turkey, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, China, Cambodia, Japan, Korea, Brazil, Mexico, Peru at marami pa! Kaya I did not list them isa-isa. LOL!
