Here's a list of the things I hope I never do.
1. I hope that I never have to go skydiving. Even if I were appointed some top secret mission from the CIA, I wouldn't do it. I'd rather spend my life in prison.
2. Take myself [or my husband, my kids, other people, etc] too seriously. Life's too short for that nonsense.
3. Further, I hope I never take myself, my husband, my kids, my family, etc for granted. Life's too short for that, too.
4. Get coersed into riding a roller coaster. I'll hold your stuff and sit on a nice bench while you put your life into the hands of a twisted piece of metal with thin wheels. Fine by me.
5. I hope I never get so old and dusty that I think rules, regulations, and my opinion are worth more than people. I pray that as my husband and I age, our ministry continues to be about the Message of Jesus Christ, not the message of "us".
6. Eat organ meat. I'll try anything once, and I love all kinds of food, but I'm really not going to be psyched about eating the pancreas of something.
7. I seriously hope I never run out of butter.
8. Stop laughing...at myself, at my dog, at life.
9. Forget where I am and start breakdancing in a shopping center or some other public place. Because that's bound to be awkward.
This has been a fun exercise in self-exploration. However, it has made me kind of bummed because I have been thinking of all these other things that I hope never happen and now I'm kind of sad.
-Get struck by lightning
-Run over someone's dog
-Become a widow...seriously negative stuff here people. Perhaps it would be better to make a list of what I do hope happens.
Starting with "I hope I can become a more positive and less worrisome person as I age."
