James’ Bucket List

“The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss,
but that it is too low and we reach it.”  Michelangelo

Wow – I stumbled onto a young man’s ‘bucket list’ on Yahoo and was inspired.  James Woodall died suddenly at the young age of 17 and left behind his to-do list which his mother, father and sister later found in his bedroom.  In honour of James, they’re going ‘to do’ everything on his list.   We can only guess why this young man’s life ended so abruptly.  However, I suspect it may have been because he had already ‘evolved’ in consciousness.  Or perhaps it was because he is our teacher and his list has been left as a lesson to all of us.

“That list is inspiring us as a family.  We want to complete the list he never got to do,”  James added, “In the end that is what made it even more upsetting: what could have been had he lived.”

Some of the items included on James’ bucket list:

  • Learn a foreign language
