bucket list

I've never made a bucket list, but I have always wanted to. 
There are things that I've had on my "mental" bucket list, 
but I figured it was time to actually write them down. 
I believe when you write you dreams out on paper (or computer)
you become more motivated to actually see your dreams come to fruition. 

Once I started, I couldn't stop! So many new & exciting things came to mind. 
I don't plan on stopping at just 40 things to do before I die, but it will do for now. 
I think what I will do is revisit this post and add things 
as well as cross them off my list as I complete tasks.

Do you have a bucket list? 
If you end up writing one, share a link in the comments below so I can see!



  1. I made a bucket list three years ago. Forgot all about it. Stumbled upon it few weeks ago. It was surprising how I'd accomplished those things I thought was the hardest to complete then. The simplest things remain undone. I'm currently planning my first solo trip and the second out of my passport country and my work country. :)
    I hope you enjoy crossing off every item on your list.

  2. I think that is so wonderful that you were able to still accomplish a few things! Now that I have a "physical copy" of my bucket list, I feel like I will be more prone to accomplish them. I am so excited!

    Thanks for reading! :)
