    Such a nice bucket list, I think I’ll do something similar, too. I’m going to be 40 in 2 years, and sometimes I feel really depressed because of it. But last week I’ve made a conversation with my girlfriend who is already 42, and she said, she was depressed, too, but now she feels glad about to be able to breath and live healthy and have a nice family. And I totally agree with her, these are the things that count, not the numbers.
