15 Things to Do Before You Die

We all have our own bucket list of things to do during our lifetime from traveling the world to conquering a small fear. We asked people to tell us what they think someone should do before they die.

1. Learn a Foreign Language

A foreign language can help you explore a culture and meet new people. You may find yourself developing life-long friendships you never even imagined. And hey, it always helps to know a new language. You'll never know when you might need it.

2. Sleep Under the Stars

Sleeping under the stars is the best way to feel closer to nature especially if you're trying to get away from the city lights. It can help you reevaluate your life and get away from the stressors in your life.

3. Watch All Those Movies Everyone Keeps Talking About

Are you sick of people referring to or asking about a movie you just haven't made time to see? Sit down with your bucket of popcorn and start watching those flicks. Sometimes it's just nice to be in the loop of things.

4. Go Sky Diving

Who doesn't like an adrenaline rush once in a while? Sky diving among other extreme sports will add some spark and thrill you didn't think was possible.

5. See the Northern Lights

The Northern Lights are one of nature's beauties. The view can be quite spiritually uplifting for those who see these rainbow colored lights. Take the time to refresh yourself with such a sight.

6. Learn an Instrument

Learning an instrument is like learning a language. The more you practice it, the better you become. Pick up an instrument that speaks to you. For all you know, you could be the next Mozart.

7. Dive the Great Barrier Reef

Getting to see underwater life that up close is a memorable experience. Not only will you get a great view, but also you'll get to share in something special as if you are part of a secret world.

8. Conquer a Fear

Why live in fear? Even if you are afraid of rollercoasters, strive to ride one anyway. Embracing your fears can be quite liberating.

9. Float in the Dead Sea

The Dead Sea's high salt concentration is known for allowing people to float in its waters easily. You can practically sit and unwind in the water. It's a relaxing experience you can't get anywhere else in the world.

10. Go on A Hot Air Balloon Ride

The motions of the hot air balloon can be quite peaceful and soothing. Be sure to take lots of pictures because the view from a hot air balloon is spectacular.

11. Visit All Seven Continents

Get a taste for diverse cultures by travelling the seven continents. Not only will you get to experience a whole new world, but also you'll get to grow as a person too!

12. Write a Book

We all have stories we want to share or pass down, but how do make sure these stories are remembered forever. Your stories are worth finding. Write down your stories for others to read for generations to follow.

13. Climb a Mountain

Look at that view. Not many people get to appreciate such a sight. Experience the magic behind why they call to people and the journey behind climbing nature's beauty.

14. Disconnect for a Week

When was the last time you went more than a day without your phone, computer, or the Internet? Breaking away from such distractions can help you rediscover yourself.

15. Follow a Dream
A dream will only stay a dream if you let it. Take charge and follow a dream. You never know where it might take you.

Life is short. So why wait on any of these goals? If you want to make the most out of life, you need to take control and also prepare for the unexpected. At the Law Office of Inna Fershteyn, we do just that. We want to help you and your family have a lively and protected life.

Estate Planning: 16 Things to Do Before You Die

While many of us like to think that we're immortal, the old joke is that only two things in life are for sure: death and taxes. Not only is it important that you have a plan in place in the unlikely event of your death – no one expected to lose Prince so soon – but you must also implement your plan and make sure others know about it and understand your wishes. As Benjamin Franklin's famous quote goes, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”

Unless Prince's mysterious vault ends up containing a will, he died intestate – and perhaps didn't tell anyone his thoughts about or plans for his estate. If you've procrastinated on yours, this article will help you get going in the right direction.

Summitt’s home off Alcoa Highway in Blount County, Tenn., was put on sale earlier this summer. She lived at Sherrill Hill Senior Living in Knoxville from late January until her death June 28 after a five-year battle with early onset Alzheimer’s disease.
