Positively Life After Fifty

Life after 50 can be an exciting journey! But when the path becomes too difficult, relax and get back on track with these inspiring stories of hope and health.

Living with chronic illness from a young age has taught me to look for the positive, to be grateful, and to live in the moment. My goal is to help you find that same joy and peace in your life.

You'll see that age & abilities don't have to matter; you can find the courage to create new dreams, believe & achieve!

This episode shares motivational stories to help you create a bucket list that can change your life.Today I take a look at the surprising history of "The Bucket List," talk about the benefits of those travel items on your list and share some inspirational stories to help you re-create your own life-changing list. Have you given much thought to your bucket list lately? You should; it's good for you. A quick search and you will find the awesome things people have on their lists; from exotic destinations to simple acts of selflessness. "The Bucket List" became a standard in American culture in 2007 when a movie of the same name was released. Did the term "Kicking the Bucket" come from a children's game or a method of execution(!?!) The benefits of having travel items on your bucket list include mental, physical, social and financial. Here's a list of motivational speakers that may forever change the way you think about a bucket list:

  1. Ryan Eller, Motivational speaker and blogger, "How a Bucket List Saved My Life" TEDx Tulsa
  2. Kathleen Taylor, "Rethinking the Bucket List" TEDx Tampa Bay Kathleen is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with 20 years experience in hospice and advanced care planning. She has a coaching and consulting practice serving the healthcare, social service, and nonprofit sectors.
  3. Edward Readiker-Henderson,  "Kill Your Bucket List" TEDx Maui talk Edward was an award-winning travel writer and traveled to over fifty countries and all the continents.  He is quoted as saying,"Whoever created the world went to a lot of trouble. It would be downright rude not to go out and see as much of it as possible."

The Joy of a "Wonder List" Maybe you think your life is just too busy even to consider taking that trip right now. Don't worry about your to-do list, or that time is running out to visit all the places you hope to see and memories you hope to make. Sometimes the best moments are unscripted. One"wonder moment" I had on a trip with my family became a treasured memory for me, and an "I wonder" moment blessed me with a life-long friend from the other side of the world. Mark Twain quotes: "Don't wait; the time will never be just right." "Give every day the chance to become the most beautiful day of your life.' **Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. Psalm 90:12
