What’s on your bucket list?

th-4Do you have a bucket list?  If so what’s on it?  A bucket list is a list of things you want to do before you pass to the other side.  You can and should always keep adding to your bucket list.  Such bucket ideas are:

–  Swim with dolphins

–  Ride a hot air balloon

–  Play on the world’s highest tennis court in Dubai

–  Learn to paint

–  Buy a beach house

–  Dye your hair pink

My list includes a visit to Greenland, an Alaskan cruise, a girls only trip to Vegas, scuba diving in Mauritius, to make one article of clothing (because I am such a terrible sewer), a bike ride to the city, to drive a Ferrari…… to name a few.  I also had starting my own business; Leave it with me, an admin & support service for seniors, which I have now ticked off!

Although you may not have thought about it, I think a surprise party should be on your bucket list!  I can tick that one off as I recently had a surprise party thrown for me.  When you are really genuinely surprised, because not one person ruined or hinted at that surprise party, it is an amazing overwhelming and humbling gesture. That is one memory I will always treasure with great pleasure!

There are websites dedicated to share, swap and succeed in executing your bucket list.  Many people believe that creating a bucket list channels your energies into accomplishing goals rather than wasting the time we have on earth on things that don’t matter.

There are a couple of theories that a bucket list came from the Middle Ages thru to a religious practice.  Some explanations are a little gory so I’ll leave them to you to goggle!  No one is able to verify the origin of a bucket list with absolute certainty.

So if you haven’t made a bucket list these are the things you need to consider!

  1. A bucket list is a list of goals.  Research shows that people that write down their goals are more successful than those that don’t!  Most people have an idea of what they want to do before they die; it’s just a matter of committing to making an actual bucket list!
  2. Get input from your family and friends.  Where do they want to go and what do they want to do?  It’s always great to have a mentor and to bounce ideas from people you respect.  This is one time it is ok to copy someone else’s ideas from their list!
  3. Don’t leave out the little things!  Your list may have amazing exotic places to visit and wonderful activities to partake in, but little pleasures can be just as rewarding – and easier to tick off!
  4. th-3Keep your bucket list realistic.  No point putting events or activities on there that you know are impossible.

I’ve ticked a few off my list already and are ticking a few more next month on my trip to the States, but the list keeps growing!  Go on, write a bucket list if you haven’t already and I’d love to hear what’s on your bucket list!
