            I’ve created a bucket list awhile ago back in 2008 and just thought I would share my dreams and goals with you. Some people create a bucket list because they are dying; I made one because I want to live. A bucket list is not about dying but about living.
            If you don’t have a bucket list, I highly recommend you to create one. It costs absolutely nothing to create one. How long does it take? Probably 15 minutes to an hour, or more if you get really caught up in the writing like me. (:  What do you stand to gain? Significant clarity and focus on what you want from your life. If you have already written your bucket list before like I did, take this opportunity to look over it. See if there are new items you want to add-on and if there is, then take this time to add them in. 

Bucket List:

  1. Go skydiving
  2. Go to Australia
  3. Read & Own all of Francine Rives books
  4. Meet Francine Rivers & Deanne Bray
  5. American dream – get a college degree, get a job, get married, have kids….
  6. Learn to solve a big Rubik’s cube
  7. See the Northern Lights
  8. Dance the Tango w/ someone special
  9. Learn to surf
  10. Ride, kiss, and swim with a dolphin
  11. Be part of a flash mob
  12. Visit the Seven Natural Wonders of the World: 
    • Grand Canyon
    • Great Barrier Reef
    • Harbor of Rio de Janeiro
    • Mount Everest
    • Aurora “Northern Lights”
    • Parícutin volcano
    • Victoria Falls
  13. Attend an Ellen DeGeneres show
  14. Help someone in need/ Make a difference in someone’s life

Also if you have not heard of the show “The Buried Life” you should definitely watch it. It’s about Four regular guys on a mission to complete a list of ‘100 Things To Do Before You Die’ and to help and encourage others to go after their own lists. They have some pretty great ideas as well. 
So what’s on your Bucket List?
