Have you seen The Bucket List? It is a 2007 movie starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman who in Spanish entitled Now or Never.

Two terminally ill people with totally opposite lives meet in a hospital room and make a list of, let’s call this way, pending things. Doing free fall, driving a Shelby Mustang, getting a tattoo, going around the world, laughing until cry or witnessing something great are some of the points of that list to which they dedicate their last months of life. But there is one especially exciting. With his friend Carter already dead, Edward, a successful billionaire who has married up to four times, meets his granddaughter after many years without talking to his daughter. Then he crossed off the list one of the points they thought was most difficult: kiss the most beautiful girl in the world.

I think this movie hides a beautiful message. Not only shows that it is never late, that you are never too old or have too many obligations to do what you always wanted to do, also teaches us that we spend our lives waiting without really living, keeping in the closet that dress we bought for a special occasion. When in reality, every day of our life is a special occasion.
