My Bucket List

This blog is about life and living and what’s livelier than a bucket list? You get to have adventures and accomplish goals and see/do things you’ve always dreamed of. The way I see it, it’s never too early to start a bucket list!

The Christmas before last I received a bucket list journal. In it, there is a blank list with 100 slots. Then, it gives me 2 pages per thing on the list to fill out when it happened, what happened, where, who I was with, the details, how I was feeling, and would I ever do it again.  This was such a creative idea for the person who made the journal. Anyways, I decided that I was going to fill up the list with things I had yet to do (only 1 exception) and start completing the list. So far I have done 6 of the 100. And, for all you people who want to do a bucket list as well, I decided to share mine. Maybe it’ll cultivate some ideas for you.

Quick note before I share my list, it won’t be 100 things because there are some personal items on the list that I’d rather keep to myself.

One thought on “My Bucket List

  1. I love how eclectic your list is and think that it will keep you busy for awhile. More of those things are being worked on than you know…..keep at them all.

    Life is about living…….not wishing that we could. 🙂 Love you
