My Bucket List

Everyone has a list of things they want to do. From the most basic to the most impossible.  As you know from reading previous posts, one of my biggest desires is to travel.

The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.

However, there are many things I’d like to do with myself.

What is a Bucket List?

A Bucket List is a list you make of things you want to achieve and/or experience within your lifetime.

What is the point of writing a Bucket List down?

Have you ever gone to a grocery store without a list?  I have. Plenty of times!  What happens without a list?  You forget things. You end up getting things you didn’t really wanted or needed, but, grabbed it because it was there.

Writing down your Bucket List is pretty much the same concept.  You want to know that you are crossing off the things you want and need.  Not settling for a poor imitation.

I wrote down my bucket list within the last year.  No, I don’t think you’re ever too old to start one. I’ve let things pass me by in the past ten years.  Well, no more.

  34. Speak in front of a large crowd
  35. Become a pets human
  36. Become debt free

This is my Bucket List. Some things I had already done prior to this list, but, I would have added them even if I hadn’t done them. Plus, well, it makes it look like I’ve done something with my life, doesn’t it?  I know there are more things I want to add and I will as I remember them.

You may however be questioning the retirement fund. I added that because the longest job I’ve held was eight years. And these days? Not many companies offer what they did in the past so that you feel secure enough to retire.  And as I don’t want to work until the day I die? Building up my retirement is definitely something I want to experience!

Now that you’ve seen my list, what about you?  What is the biggest thing you would put on your list?  What about the smallest?

  1. I have a bucket list, but I really need to update it. Warning: Once you fly first class, you can never go back to coach. For reals! I’ve spoken in front a large crowd lots of times and it gets easier every time. I remember the first time – my mouth was so dry and I thought I was going to be sick. You have a great bucket list and I hope you do them all in your lifetime.
