FFS Friday - Contented

After a few silly incidents I'm having to tell the boys daily "The only things we put in our mouth are food and drinks". You wouldn't think this would be necessary considering they are 5 and 7, but it is. Boys.

Last weekend I was talking to my friend about our bucket lists. Neither of us have one. There's nothing that she wants to do before she dies. The only thing I want to do is get married by Elvis in Vegas and we're planning that trip.

Neither of us have anything else that we really want to do before we die because we've done the things we wanted to do. Interesting. We chatted further about whether we should come up with a bucket list then decided that not having one is great because it means we're content and we've done the things that are important to us.

Sure, I'd love to travel more, but there's nothing that I have a burning desire to do. Obviously if I died tomorrow I'd regret not seeing my boys grow up etc, but they are things that happen with time, not things that I can make happen.

My best friend thinks one thing that makes us content is knowing that if we really wanted to do something, we could make it happen fairly quickly. That's a wonderful place to be isn't it? We truly are lucky.

Being able to say you're content with your life is a magical thing. 

I have made this decision; I'm not going to make a bucket list but I am going to make sure that I see more of my friends and family. That's what I'd regret, not spending more time with the people I love. Luckily for me that's easy to change. 

Do you have a bucket list?
