More than a bucket list

So…we have this crazy trend now of everyone creating bucket lists and goals.

At first, I didn’t quite understand the point and as stubborn as I am, I may have silently refused to create one.

I am allowed to change my mind though and after some thorough thinking, I realized how cool a bucket list can be. Do I think most people are going to actually do all the items on their bucket list? Nope. Do I think I am going to do all the goals on bucket list? Absolutely not. Mainly because most of the goals are outside of my means. I am okay with that. But I realize now that a bucket list is so much more than a bucket list.

As I started creating my bucket list, I realized what kind of person I was. What I really find interesting, limits/fears I didn’t know I had, the kind of person I want to be, what is important to me and what I have no interest in. I think I’ve learned more about what I don’t want to put on my bucket list…than what I have put on it so far.

I don’t have many items but I have included mine below. Not really because you care, but because if I at least put it in my blog, I’ll be able to find it later 🙂
