My bucket list isn’t all about going to 5 different countries and jumping out of planes. It’s not about meeting celebrities or anything like that. It’s all about living in the moment and enjoying those things that make me happy. It’s about spending time with the people who I love and keep me smiling.
It’s about the people who love me for who I am and don’t say “that’s too hard, you can’t do that” and don’t say no, but they say that we CAN do it, we may have to be more prepared but we don’t have to stop ourselves.
Every day is different and every day we face a new challenge. Like today, for example I’m sat back in hospital recovering after a small operation which I’m going to have to have every 8 weeks now; and as always the recovery hasn’t exactly gone to plan…
Yesterday I was sat with my boyfriend watching 2 Fast, 2 Furious in a hot tub. We were laughing and joking and talking non stop; and this afternoon I’ve not been able to do much else but breathe.
Welcome to my life – no two days are the same but it’s never boring. It’s a 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year struggle. But I can’t change it so I take each day as it comes and make sure that though my organs may be failing me and pushing me to the edge; my mind is not done and I will continue to live life to the full and tick anything and everything off my bucket list.
I have dreams and aspirations too, and just because I’m ill doesn’t mean I won’t achieve them all.
