You are already naked.

Today, I bring you a sponsored post, presented by Just Ask with Today's Mama. Until now, I have declined sponsored post inquiries. So, why did I say yes to the one? Three reasons: A) I like the sponsors' missions and this campaign B) They gave me a fun, paid assignment C) I have the awesome job of awarding one of YOU with a new dslr camera! TRUE. Read on.

:: :: ::

Since Steve Jobs died, his 2005 Stanford commencement address has been flying around the internet. I love that speech. I love one sentiment in particular:
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.
What a wonderful gift, our life span. I was talking about this with a friend (the same friend I hugged on a mountain last week) and she said, "Seriously, we could live for 200 years like a tortoise or 15 years like a dog but we have THIS life span that allows us to accomplish so very much over the course of many decades; our lives, however, are still short enough and fragile enough that we can't take a single moment for granted."

You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

Just Ask has tasked us to develop and share our bucket lists. What do we hope to accomplish and achieve during this fragile, important life? They have developed a test—the BRACAnalysis test—that empowers us with information about our risk for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. Just Ask wants us to live a long, full life, one where we have the opportunity to cross items off our lists.

OK, a few things I'd like to do, see and experience before I kick the bucket (it was so fun to create this list!).


1. Get my hands on a camper van, pile my family in it and head south for a many month adventure through Central and South America.

2. Cook every recipe I inherited from my grandma's recipe box with my kids.

3. Relearn French (I was pretty proficient at one time!)

4. Write a book.

5. See my children graduate from the college of their choice without a pile of debt.

6. Go behind the vault door of the San Francisco institution to view the work of my Great Grandfather Cornelius Philip (a medical entomologist, he founded the cure for the Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever).

7. Travel to India.

8. Suck it up and harvest my own meat (or suck it up and go back to being vegetarian)

9. Volunteer with my family for a social justice organization in a third world country.

10. Swim in the Mediterranean Sea.

11. Retire on the early side, live frugally, travel, make art and recreate with my husband for many years.

12. Take an artisan bread making class.

13. Ride a horse running at full gallop.

14. Witness James Turrell's Roden Crater.

15. Make a quilt for each of my daughters (I started Margot's two years ago!).

Your turn.

Share your list on TodaysMama.com and have a shot at winning a pretty awesome trip. The grand prizes are: a family vacation to Universal Orlando Resort, a Las Olas Surf Camp Safari and Ski Lessons and stay at Park City Mountain Resort. This contest closes on Saturday, November 12. All the deets over at TodaysMama.com.


And! Thanks to the sponsor, one reader will WIN a Canon Rebel XS Camera! Simply leave me a comment sharing an item from your bucket list. For another entry, like Just Ask on Facebook, come back and leave another comment letting me know you did. Winner will be randomly selected November 15.

EDITED TO ADD: **Many are having trouble leaving comments! Please double check to be sure your comment posts. Copy it before you post. You may have to try twice. Sorry for the pain, not sure what is up.**

OK, chickens. I'll end with a Wayne Gretzky quote that I love:

You miss 100% of the shots you don't take.


Thanks, Just Ask! I'll be back with nuggets in a day or two. xo

small print (to be read really fast in a low voice): This is a sponsored giveaway. Just Ask offers a breast and ovarian cancer screening and is encouraging people to share 15 things the want to enjoy in my lifetime as a reminder to be aware of their health.

Two items: start my own business (you inspire me, Nicci!) and live on an ashram in India.

I would like to propose - to the public at large - that we stop calling these "bucket" lists. My husband says that sounds too depressing, so we have begun calling ours "dream" lists. Much more positive. Namaste.

Melina said...

I think you know mine! Write a book, write a book, write a book.

(Also, write for a TV show, live in NYC and write for Saturday Night Live.)

We're all going to die, we're all already naked, come on, why the heck not!!! I LOVED THIS!

Sandra said...

I would love to sing some of the great music of Bach, Vivaldi, Verdi, or some other amazing composer in an old, beautiful, grand European Cathedral. I missed my chance to do this once and would love the chance to do it again!

Sammie said...

I have an extensive bucket list, but one of the things I MUST do is...

Explore Italy. I want to go and just...go. No plan, no map, no agenda. I want to go all 'Eat, Pray, Love' on the place.

I also want that camera. I've been drooling over DSLR's for close to two years now. I've been saving up, but inevitably a dentist visit sneaks up, or a car repair, or a family emergency of sorts. Photography is my artistic outlet. I love it.

Becky V said...

Live in a different country...my husband is completing his PhD and we're been discussing doing his post doc abroad...it scares the living daylights out of me, but I know we'd never regret doing it.

I would like to run a marathon!

Kristy Goetz Photography Blog said...

Such a beautiful cause, especially to someone who has a mother with breast cancer and a grandmother that will be seeing her fate soon with ovarian cancer.
As a reminder of my health, I encourage myself to be proactive with fitness and always remain optimistic.


P.S. I'm looking forward to nuggets tomorrow! ;)

I'm not sure if this is really a 'bucket list' type item, but I'd love to see a cure for cancer in my lifetime. So, in the meantime, I'll keep fundraising like crazy to support cancer research.

I love your list and how it embodies the way you live out each day -- with a whimsical touch of love and adventure. Rocky Mtn Fever? Crazy.
Thanks for this spark of inspiration. I'll be thinking of my list for the rest of the day. Topping the list today is for Olive to meet her only living great grandma. I think a northern California road trip is in order...

Great list! Canal boat trip down the Rhine with stops at EVERY castle.

Jessie said...

To get up on the stage and sing with my guitar.

My childhood dream was to become a musician but my low self esteem and shyness held me back from ever performing.

Now, for my bucket list... I don't ever want to be a professional musician or anything even close. I just want to prove to myself that I can get up there and sing my heart out and share one of the songs I have written after all these years. That I can do it.

Just liked Just Ask on Facebook. My MIL is a breast cancer survivor so I strongly support Just Ask's mission.

GraceesMommy said...

I had a bucket list once. And I am happy to say that much of it has been checked off..top was to experience being a mom (ovarian tumors made it almost impossible)..but then we adopted Gracee 9 years ago..not sure if it is a bucket list item but it was my biggest desire.

I guess all that is really left on the list is to take the RV across country with my girl on her 16th birthday..just she and me and our cameras. Visit everyone we know from the east coast right out to the west coast and see all the beauty on the way. lovely...eh?

The Tomberlins said...

recreate the east coast roadtrip i took with my family when i was a kid with my little family...

mandijo said...

This brought tears to my eyes. My husband and I are in a funny spot right now where we know we need change. He isn't doing the work he wants to do, yet we are scared to take the plunge since money is tight to begin with. These words were very much appreciated!

Prepare my boys for a successful life by providing them a strong education and lots of important life experiences.

Judybusy said...

I want to move to a different city; I never thought I'd end up living in my home state! Portland, OR is currently the contender. It's scary, because I'm 46, will be48 when we can move, so I am afraid of not being able to recreate the great circle of friends I have now.

I'd like to visit every major league baseball stadium. This is technically from my husband's bucket list but I would love to do this with him and our three boys.

I've always wanted to go to England, my dad was born there and I would like to see all the family sights. I would also want to go to the really touristy spots too. In fact, I was just thinking I would cross that street like the Beatles did! Oh, and I'd go to perfect my British accent! Chip chip Cheerio!

Clanton Clan said...

Love this post! Such a great motivator to explore how I want to live each day! One of my bucket list items:

Renew my wedding vows...on the beaches of Hawaii...with all our babes by our side. I want each of my children to see the love 'mom' and 'dad' have for one another.

seashell said...

I love your list. One on mine is to visit India as well, and live in an Ashram.
Another on my list is to take my husband to see the Grand Canyon, at sunrise. I had the honor of witnessing the sun rise over the mountains, and it was a beautiful experience.

I did #1 on your list with my fam when I was 8, 9, and 12 every winter. Then when I was 13 we just up and moved to Central America for three years. Sooooo amazing for me and my sis. This is also #1 on my bucket list to do with my boys and husband one day.

I want to grow old enough to see my grandkids (a long time since my second baby is still in the womb). I would love to take my family to Africa and visit the national parks of Gabon for a month.

Two Girls and A Guy said...

I want to open sort of a half-way home for needy children and their mothers. Where the mothers have access to resources to help them become better mothers and get back on their feet. And a place where children can get the loving care they need.

Marlene said...

Well! Grow a prune plum tree, because I love those golden fleshed purple jewels. This of course means moving a large distance, or finding just the right microclimate spot.

Tough to choose but #7 finally finish that cloth diaper board book I have been working on.

I've always wanted to win a prize that I don't need so that I can give it to someone who really does need or want it. Like I want to give a gift that I didn't have to pay for to someone that I don't really even know. As I write this, not sure exactly why this is on my list, but I think it has something to do with wanting to feel like Granny Gotrocks or something egotistical like that. Maybe I'll get my chance if I win the camera because I don't need one!!

I love this! I've written about my bucket list in a post on my own blog, but I call it an "Anything List" because the thought of looking at this big list of "I can do anything" and then choosing the "something that will make me happy right now" feels way more promising and fulfilling than compiling a list of things I want to accomplish before I, well, die.

At the top of mine:
-live in a cottage in the mountains
-climb a bridge
-buy a big ugly van, paint it beautiful colors, and drive it to the pacific

Jamie said...

So so so many things to do... including learn and remind myself every day not to waste this life...just one off the bucket list would be being financially able to move to europe (austria) for about a month every year)...and have my own cabin in the woods somewhere to write - "a place of my own"... love the "you're already naked" quote

Swear of my life the top of my bucket list is 'save for a fancy camera and most importantly, learn how to use it!'

I love capturing my kid's childhoods and I feel now is the time to move on to the next step with it and really get creative.

I was feeling all weepy over turning 30 in a few days, wondering where the time had gone and mad at myself for not being more "accomplished" at this point in my life...and then I read this and realized that I've already checked the 2 most important (to me) things off my list: marry most amazing man on the planet and have babies with him. Everything else (more babies, start a non-profit, renovate house) is just icing at this point. So thanks for the wake-up call! Oh, and I would love a new camera to document my next, best yet, decade with!

Climb the Great Wall of China with my two kids, knit a scarf, and kiss my husband on all seven continents (I've covered four so far!) are a few from my "list".

One of the items on my bucket list is to own a horse again someday and to start horseback riding again...it's been too long and I wish I never stopped!

I want to compile a bunch of stories about my parents, grandparents, etc from when they were growing up so that I don't forget and so that I can share them with my kids and keep the memories alive.

Here goes: Go on a medical mission trip somewhere- perhaps Haiti or somewhere in Africa.

Oh, this is tough. Definitely #1 is to go back to school and finish my degree. I would love to teach someday. Also, to learn to speak Dutch. My grandfathers did it, and I would love to honor my heritage by learning a language that was so natural to our family at one time!

My bucket list is extensive, but three of the items are:
1. Write my memoirs and have them published (I'm twenty so it will be a while)
2. Find a meaningful way to enrich the lives of strangers
3. Be a movie extra

I want to take a trip around the world. And then come home and start a family.
