When talking about bucket lists, most people probably picture a long list of dreams one wishes to complete throughout their lifetime. And many may choose not to keep track of them, because they believe that they’ll never be attainable, due to a lack of money, a lack of time, a lack of companions to complete them with, and for so many other reasons. And I see that as a problem.
What is life without goals, dreams, and the hope of success? I not only see a bucket list as a list of wishes, but as a list of things to check off and say, “I did this. I truly lived and enjoyed my life and the freedom of being able to do what what I wish to.”
So that’s my challenge; I challenge YOU, whoever you may be, to complete a bucket list. Whether it’s 10 goals or 100 goals, create a list, a physical list, and complete it, because nothing is ever too far away if you set your mind to it.
Here is my own personal bucket list so far, including some small wishes and some large, and some things I’ve already completed. And I know that it will continue to grow.
