the BUCKET list

Since I was a young child I have always been fascinated with bucket lists. I actually had a running written list that I was constantly adding to; at some point I think it hit 452 things to do before I die! It was very detailed and had everything I could imagine from tiny, to small, to big, to not in a million years. I have obviously misplaced this list. So over the past years I have been attempting more practical lists. I’ve called them “25 things to do in my 25th year of life”, for example.

In this section I’m going to document my journey to fill my bucket, not only to look back on but to challenge myself as well.

I want to CHALLENGE you to create yours, if you haven’t already. Write it down. When you write it down it becomes more real. Find someone to hold you accountable, and get to work!

I would LOVE to hear some of the things you’d like to do!

Leave some of your BL ideas in the comments & lets lock arms and live life to the fullest TOGETHER!!
