Who Do You Want to Be Before You Die?

When you mention a bucket list, many people think about the movie of the same name starring Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson. The characters they play are critically ill, and as such they create a "to do" list of things to accomplish before they kick the bucket. The idea depicted in the film generated an interest in the public in prepa

I love the way Marion breaks the chapters into bite size pieces so that I am able to read it a bit at a time. She has a way of connecting with the reader. I enjoy reading the quotes and then reflecting on how it relates to my life. I am able to let go of the past and focus on where I want to go in the future.

This book is great for those who are starting out on their journey of self discovery and, for those who have been on the road for a while, this book makes a great refresher, a wonderful plac

From my Amazon review:

I guess I'm a lucky guy.

Let me explain:

On the day I received this review copy in the mail, I was diagnosed with a potentially life-threatening heart arrhythmia. After returning home from the Doctor appointment, I stopped to check my mail and Marion's book was in there, waiting for me. Timing is everything, right?

I also consider myself lucky because I've been fortunate to have connected with Marion a few years ago and I've been able to watch her grow as a writer. From a read

Our book club read two of Ms. Witte’s prior books, so when The No-Regrets Bucket List came out, we were curious about it, as is seemed like a diversion from her previous works. We found it to be very much in line with the message of Courage of the Soul and Little Madhouse on the Prairie. This work is about becoming the person you were meant to be, and creating the legacy you want to leave behind.

As we started discussing this book, we realized most of the women in our club have created bucket lis

~Wise Woman Collection~

By Marion Elizabeth Witte

Many people have a “Bucket List”, things they want to do or places they want to go, before they die. This book addresses the idea of having a “No Regrets” list of how to live.

Author Marion Witte discusses this philosophy in this book from her “Wise Woman Collection”. Some of the things she encourages the reader to consider are who they want to be in this life, and how we can achieve this.

Being genuine to oneself can lead to a genuine lifestyle with

This is Marion's third book and second of her Wise Woman series. This is an enjoyable read and a great reminder of why we want to be here sharing this earth. If you want to experience your passion day to day or return to a state of "flow" then this is the book for you. Upon fishing it I felt like I had gone on a mini vacation... Only cheaper ;)

Sage Advice. Recommended reading for all. It is not that the information is new since there is a plethora of books on similar or related topics. This book, however, is not daunting; it is not "preachy" neither. Wonderful words spread across short chapters with very arresting titles.

I applaud Marion Witte for embarking on this "Wise Women Collection" journey. I can tell that she is a generous person with a heart of gold; the kind of person, anyone would love to have as a neighbour or a friend.If

Until I read this book, I thought I had created the bucket list I needed to accomplish my life’s goals. On it I have such things as what I want to acquire and where I want to travel.

This book presents a very different approach to a bucket list. The concept underlying it is that we need to create a bucket list by which to live, so that we create the type of legacy we want to leave behind. The legacy a person wants to create will of course be unique and personal based on their passions and experie

I received this book through the Goodreads First Read giveaway program.

First, I believe I am much younger than the target audience for this book. The end section of this book has an activity section, which includes writing an epitaph on a cartoon grave. I was a little taken back.

However, once I got into the book was happy with the content. The author essentially discusses creating a bucket life for everyday day, that if follow, should leave a person with very few regrets. The topics are not eart

The first thing I noticed looking at the book cover I immediately went into a relaxed state of being. From the depth of the clouds in the background to feeling the sand in my toes I could be the person in that chair.

Once I opened the cover there were so many inspirational quotes that anyone could use as affirmations to bring uplifting energy into their daily routines. This book has extremely specific guidelines to design a life that is unique to the individual. I will use this book as a daily me

Wise Woman Collection – The No-Regrets Bucket List

A gem of a book from a gem of a human being whose intent seems to be a desire to help others to find light and sparkle (truths) in this journey called life. She's willing to share what she's learned in HER journey...yet acknowledges that her life is a "work in progress"---so much yet to live and so much yet to learn.

Andrea
This is literally 170 pages of trite cliches. It's competently written, although the author's prose is unstylish and generic, but the ideas are cohesively presented. But unless your mind will be blown by bullet point lists advising you on such generalities as "learn to forgive others," "accept yourself as you are" and "laugh every day," there's not much of value or uniqueness to recommend this one. I am disappointed.

We'll go with 3.5 stars.

There were some points that I agreed with and am trying to change and some I don't agree with (like the idea you should not accept anger as a legit feeling). [As far as anger I do believe you should allow the feeling - the bad part of anger is the habit of reacting immediately to it instead of analyzing why and seeing if you can change something.]

I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

I really enjoyed this book that I won through a GoodReads giveaway.

This book helps define our life's objectives and focus on what is important. It is a book that I'll keep close so I can read again parts of it when I need motivation.

I read the two most recent works of this author, and I love them. They are a departure from her first work, Little Madhouse on the Prairie, yet they continue the theme of hope and inspiration.
