Society dictates that by 40 you should be well settled, have a stable job, a house and kids. However, it’s not the destination that matters, it’s the journey. Make a list and try to achieve as much as you can.
Don’t know what to put in your bucket list? Well, here are some things you should definitely try before you turn 40!
Take a road trip
Gather a few of your closest friends, chose a destination and head out! Go to a place you’ve never been before and explore the habitat and the culture along with interacting with the commoners. It’s not everyday you get the chance to go out on an adventure. Make stops on the way, sleep in the car or an old motel. Enjoy, you only get to live once.
There’s always one country you dream of going to but never get the chance. Well, it’s not too late, get your passport and run to the airport. Plan the trip beforehand, go alone or with a significant other, and try to enjoy it to the fullest.
Become a mentor
Giving back to the community should be an important aspect of everyone’s life. It’s not always about signing checks, become a mentor for someone. Teach someone something you’re good at. Like Stephen King said, “We never know which lives we influence, or when, or why”.
Drive around in an expensive car
Everyone want to own an expensive car at some point in their life. Can’t afford it? Don’t worry, go on a test drive! Just because you can’t own your dream car, doesn’t mean you can’t take it out for a spin.
Do something you’re afraid of
Facing your fears should be a major part of your journey. You can’t spend your entire life fearing something that can prove to be an amazing experience. Whether it’s paragliding, scuba diving, bungee jumping or sky diving, you should at least give it a try!
Treat yourself with something expensive
Everyone deserves a chance to do something extravagant solely for themselves. Like an expensive pair of heels? A watch? Don’t give it too much thought, go ahead and buy it. You deserve to treat yourself!
