The Love U Project | The Bucket List

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the things you did.”

~ Mark Twain

|Week 9|

We should all have a bucket list. I didn’t make one until last year at the suggestion of my husband. I had read lists that went into the 100’s and knowing me that was a bit daunting. Daunting to me can often times mean failure in the end. Baby steps I say. Guess what though – when you start opening up your eyes and research Bucket Lists you become inspired to live life a bit more fully and that list expands. The dauntingness goes away when you realize this is a lifetime journey and not one to make in a year.

Why did I finally create a bucket list?

2016 and 2017 were rough. Really rough. At the end of 2017 I realized I could not and would not continue to live my life that way – lost, wandering aimlessly, lonely, crying, screaming, begging, drowning in chaos and biggest of all – REGRETTING. So I made the Bucket List to inspire me and keep me focused on the road ahead. I created this list before this year’s vision board and wow. It inspired me to expand my vision board from locally to globally. As you will see there are missing numbers and that is okay. Dreams change. Goals change. Some of my bucket list may seem simple as if what is the challenge. Well they are a challenge to me. Some are things I had accomplished before the bucket list but making it I thought about all of the things I want to look back upon and not regret that I didn’t experience it.  There are no rules to creating your bucket list. Will I mark everyone off? Maybe or maybe not but I will try and that’s the most you can expect of yourself. Accepting this takes away the daunting part as well.

Do you have a bucket list? What would your bucket list include? Or what is on it now? Go ahead and share it with the world because once you put it out there magical things happen. Dreams come to fruition and goals are reached.
