Crazy to think that right this moment, you are as old as you’ve ever been and as young as you’ll ever be again. Usually people think of a #BucketList as a list of extravagant, wild adventures like swimming with pigs in the Bahamas but truth is it should also be filled with:
- Attainable short-term and long-term goals (My list even has “Hair Goals” LOL)
- Business Ideas
- Places you want to go
- People you want to meet
- Food you want to try
The 3 main things that creating a #BucketList can provide:
Focus: Keeping goals and future plans on a list can keep you on track and motivated to check off another box, whether big or small. Even when you review your list, it can re-energize you and keep you focused.
Purpose: Your list can help you discover your “Why”? Focusing on your “why” instead of your “how” (i.e. bills, money) can lead to a deeper understanding of who you really are, your purpose and WHY you want to do the things you want to do.
Vision: The #Bucketlist begins to double as a clear path to follow that helps provide direction and a visual guide for your life.
Honestly, I created my #BucketList to one day share it with my kids and help give them a better idea of who I was before they were even a thought. I’m trying leave a legacy and anything I don’t have time to finish before I kick the bucket, hopefully my children can finish off for me.
Take a peek at a couple of things on my #BucketList:
- Dance with my dad at my wedding
- Witness a miracle
- Swim with pigs in the Bahamas
- Stomp wine grapes
- Get 2 abs
- Stand in a red phone booth in England
- Send a message in a bottle
- Keep my hair “heat-free” for 3 years (2 years down, 1 to go!)
