Bucket ListDo you even have a bucket list?

One thing I realized a few years ago is everyone needs to have one. I went through several online, when I was making mine, and what I found was everyone’s list was different, as they should be. The more I looked into other people’s bucket list, though, the more I decided it wasn’t just something to have but to look forward to doing.

Everything on this list is something I truly want to do in my life-time, and I did make it a long list on purpose. I’ve had a few people tell me there’s no way I’ll ever accomplish everything on here, and that’s OK with me if I don’t.

The point is, throughout my entire life, I will have something to look back on and say, I did that and I had fun. I lived my life. Whether you’re 15 or 50, there’s no reason to not have a bucket list. All you have to do is sit down and write things you want to do. You can even copy ideas from mine or look around on the internet for other ideas. Just make it yours and own it.

I wonder what is on other people’s list all the time, and I’d love to hear what’s on yours. Please feel free to leave a comment on my Facebook page, here. I’d love to hear from you!
