365 different things to do in 2009-My Bucket list? I need your help

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Capital Properties-Buy a home in Washington DC. Sell a home in Washington DC SP98364271

About two weeks ago I was sitting in a corner just thinking. All of a sudden,I said to myself "I need to change my life. I need to do more different things to do in 2009. Some times from the time I get up in the morning till the time I go to sleep,I don't do that much. I want to spice up my life I guess. I want to do more things in life than just the ordinary.

So I am trying to figure out 365 different things to do in 2009. But I am having trouble coming up with some things to do. So far I have like ten things on my list. They are

  • Give money to a charity organization.
  • Give your time by volunteering at a non-profit organization.
  • Give someone advice.
  • Teach someone how to do something.
  • Learn another foreign language. (Even though I am a Maryland and DC Bilingual Real Estate Agent. I speak Yoruba which is a language spoken in Nigeria. So any Nigerian home buyers who are looking to buy or Nigerian Home owners who are looking to sell their house in Howard County Maryland,Anne Arundel County Maryland,Washington DC,Prince
  • George's County Maryland,Charles County Maryland and St.Mary's County Maryland-CALL ME)
  • Travel to another country. (I've been to Nigeria. But I would love to go to Paris). Image Ref: 1351-05-60 - Eiffel Tower, Paris, France, Viewed 1663 times
  • Read a book.
  • Run in a marathon for a good cause.
  • Take a cooking class. (I am not a great cook-But I make a mean oodles of noodles though)
  • Give a gift to a stranger.
  • Help someone do something. Ex: Help a old lady across the street.
  • Rest (I say that because most of us just WORK! WORK! WORK! which leaves us time to enjoy LIFE!LIFE! LIFE! and have FUN! FUN! FUN!).
  • Take a picture of something beautiful or take a picture of someone beautiful and give it to someone.
  • Learn to play a musical instrument. Maybe I should take up piano lessons. I always wanted to know how to play.  Image Ref: 11-14-24 - Grand Piano Keyboard, Viewed 2238 times
  • Call up someone you have not spoken to in a long time or don't get along with.
  • Pray for someone who is in need of a prayer badly. (I pray for people but everybody that you are praying for don't know that you are actually praying for them).

I don't have a lot of things on my "365 different things to do in 2009". I feel the need to do this list. Creating this list and doing everything on my list I feel will help me become a better person than I am now. And by doing what I am going to do on my list,I hope that I can inspire someone to do something that they thought they could never do or was just afraid of doing. Am I making a bucket list? I guess you can say that. But it was not what I had in mind when I set out to write this post. I am want to do different things in 2009.

So what different things do you think I should do in 2009? Are you doing different things in 2009? And if so,what are they? Please share. I need some things to add to my list.  Image Ref: 11-46-56 - The Hoppings Fun Fair, Town Moor, Newcastle upon Tyne, Viewed 2173 times Oh yeah! Please don't add going on a roller coaster ride to the list. I AM NOT A FAN OF ROLLER COASTER RIDES AT ALL. I am still haunted by my experience in 2005-LOL. So in case this is my last blog for 2008. Happy New Year to you all. May 2009 be a great and prosperous year for all of us. Take care.

Lanre, That is a really great list.  I do a lot but need to improve on some. 

How about adding;  attending one of the RECamp seminars  or one of the Social conventions around the country?  We could learn some new social networking info and meet the people who live in our computer!!

One thing I want to do this year is finish my CRS.

Ginger and Roger- I like joining the choir thing. I am a member of a ministry in my church but I have been MIA for over a year. I am definitely going to get back into doing that again next year. Taking in a foster child? I would love to do that. Honestly speaking,I dont even think they will allow me to do so. If I get married,then I would probably have a better chance. Thanks for your comments/suggestions. Have a safe and blessed 2009.

I think your list looks wonderful! Even if you didn't move past the number you have currently listed you'd still have a rich experience with those that you *do* have.
