I’ve never been a fan of the term ‘bucket list’.  I think, perhaps, it leads me to believe that I’m on the course to death.  I mean. I know I am; We all are. But I just prefer not to think about it.  Interestingly enough, something happened when I turned 50. All of a sudden I felt like time was running out. Like I hadn’t done enough in the years I’d been blessed with. My therapist asked ‘what is it you think you are missing out on doing’.  I couldn’t say. Thus begun my quest to identify and create my bucket list.

Originally, I was trying to think of some other name to call it.  As I said, I don’t want to be thinking about kicking the bucket… not at all.  But eventually I gave up that quest.  It is what it is.  The bottom line is, there are some things I want to experience before leaving this earth.  Before kicking said bucket.

A lot of these things are not even that big of a deal really. But they are things that I have purposely put off doing, waiting for that special day.  When I’ve lost 100 lbs… when my kids are grown… when i have more money… you name it, I’ve found a reason NOT to do it.  After putting things off for so many years, I actually have forgotten what makes me excited.  What is it like to do what I want to do.  In fact, when I’m asked that question (and I have been many times, and have even asked myself), I have not one answer!

I had no idea where to even begin.  After doing a lil research, I came up with 10 categories I’m interested in. They are:

  1. Travel
  2. Adventure
  3. New Things
  4. Family
  5. Community
  6. Financial
  7. Life Goals
  8. Physical
  9. Lucky
  10. Random

From there I was finally able to think of some things I’d like to do. And I am really looking forward to checking some things off of this list.  Better believe I’ll be blogging about them!

If you’d like to see my list, a work in progress ~ come check it out here, or by clicking ‘bucket list’ in the navigation..

Do you have a bucket list?  What kinds of things are on yours?
