I will feel like a failure if I died before completeing or achieving__________?

What do you hope not to leave unfinished or unfullfilled when you die and doing so would make your time here pretty much a bust?

Seriously though, I’ve battled obesity since I was an early teen, so dying without ever achieving my weight loss goals would be a major disappointment. I am close, but not quite there yet.

@BoBo1946 Is that really you? Don’t know what slam dunk means, but you look to be doing a pretty good job!! :))

BoBo1946's avatar

@partyparty yes, that was my sophomore year in college. I was 18 years old. Dunking is jumping high enough to throw the ball down through the basket. Thank you my friend.

Hey, here is a video showing the art of dunking.

There are times when I thought I would have to “save” the world (whatever that means) in order to feel like a success. Now, it’s kind of a toss-up—I’d like very much to be a published writer before I die, but I’d hate to say that’s the test of my life. If necessary, I can consider the stuff I put on fluther to be a form of publishing. The fact that a few people have responded to my work is what is important anyway, although it would be nice to have my real name better recognized and respected.

I’m good. The great beyond can claim me anytime it wants.

Of course I’d miss my wife and daughter terribly, but they’d be just fine without me. And, since I’m dead, I probably wouldn’t “miss” much of anything.
