Life is fast. Life is fleeting. Life happens all of a sudden. And in the madness, there are a lot of things we end up not doing. And what is a life well lived if you haven't tried all the things we should? What's the point if the journey ends without many lasting experiences? There are a few things that truly make us feel larger than life and missing out on them shouldn't be pardonable. Here are 34 things that we must do at least once in our lifetime.
1. Live alone
As cliched as it may sound, living all by ourselves is a great learning experience and loads of fun!
2. Go for an adventure trip
And by adventure, I mean something absolutely challenging and out of our comfort zone.
3. Keep a dog
They teach us some of the best life lessons.
4. Experience nature
Take a break. Relax and unwind.
5. Stargaze all night
There is something about staring into outer space and wondering how significant or trivial we really are.
6. Go up on stage
Whether it's to give a speech or to sing or to dance, getting up there to get rid of that stage fright is a victory in itself.
7. Learn to play an instrument
8. Spend time with our grandparents
9. Travel solo
Just like living alone, travelling solo will teach us a lot about ourselves. And we will also meet plenty of interesting people and have a lot of unique experiences along the way.
10. Spend all our money on something expensive...
What's the point of saving it all up? If we toil to earn it, might as well spurge on ourselves once in a while.
11. Or get broke
It's not like you're going to stay broke forever. And it's not like you can't survive if you're broke.
12. Try Marijuana
And not because it's illegal.
13. Get as drunk as you possibly can
You will wake up to a lot of interesting stories the next day.
14. Fall in love
15. Fall out of love
16. Explore our sexuality
Make out with a stranger or kiss someone of the same sex. It's refreshing, trust me.
17. Laugh at an embarrassing moment
18. Trust a stranger
19. Miss a train
Or a flight. Or both. Don't stress over it. It might just become the best thing that happened to you.
20. Spend an entire day in bed
And do nothing. Because you don't need to go to the hills to unwind.
21. Do something out of the blue
Whether it's taking a trip or quitting that annoying job, do it if it feels right.
22. Visit a haunted place
23. Attend a concert
24. Learn to cook at least one meal
25. Learn a new language
26. Participate in an adventure sport
27. Run a marathon
28. Try yoga
29. Date a celebrity
While this may seem out of bounds, we never know when and how we might get lucky!
30. Break the law
By which I don't mean murder or steal, but how about party after hours or something like that?
31. Donate money
32. Help a stranger
33. Volunteer for a social cause
34. Spend a day without technology
It might seem difficult but it's not impossible. We can't become slaves to technology.
