Imagine you have a Top 10 List of things you dreamed about doing someday. Now you look at the list and decide it is too late or for some reason a dream can no longer be realized.
Way before the phrase Bucket List was coined I had the dream to dance with Fred Astaire. I used to dance around my living room as a teenager while I watched Fred and Ginger in a late night movie.
It was a pie in the sky dream to begin with, but hey, what are dreams about? Fred died. So there goes the dream. Or, so I thought at the time.
About a year ago, I took up ballroom dancing. I had always been passionate about dancing and really loved it — despite the fact that I had done very little of it. Dancing just puts a smile in my heart. Very quickly I had a de ja vu moment and realized that Johnny Francoviglia, my young dance teacher was my new Fred Astaire.
Johnny is a brilliant dance teacher and gave me the confidence to dance in a Holiday Showcase with him at Overland Park Ballroom in Kansas City.
Despite my anxiety and jitters, I loved every minute of it! I had fulfilled a dream that I thought was no longer possible. I was living life to the fullest.
Maybe you would like to write a bestseller, visit the Vatican, or learn how to sail. What about chasing a tornado? Consider whatever your heart desires.
So, I really want to hear — What’s on Your Bucket List? Is there something that you can do, even in a modified way that will fulfill a long-held dream?
