Creating a Bucket List

When I was sixteen, I made a bucket list – you know, a list of things that you want to do before you “kick the bucket.” Some of the things on my list were odd (because I was sixteen…) like having a pet duck. Some things simply didn’t happen, such as meeting Robin Williams. And, of course, I have already done a few things: gotten a tattoo, published a book, and visited Paris, France.

Having dreams and goals is important. It gives us something to look toward and aim for in life. At 35, I now have a very different idea of what I want to do in life compared to my teenage years. (I’m still working on updating my vision board.) Everyone should have something that they are reaching for in life. In case you are feeling stuck, here is my current bucket list. Feel free to use it for ideas to make your own!

Oh, and check out the movie The Bucket List, starring Jack Nicolson and Morgan Freeman. It’s a great movie and can also give you some ideas.
