My Bucket List




As I have noted in previous posts I like Lists. To do lists, goals lists, exercise lists, chore lists, grocery lists, monthly-weekly-daily lists, at any given time you will find at least two in my purse.

With that being said I have been throwing around the idea of an actual Bucket List for a little while now. My friend and fellow blogger Penny did one last year, and left me remembering that I needed to combine my goal lists into one.

Its not that I felt compelled to create a list, but more so to put my thoughts and goals in order and in writing to sort of set them in stone. I've always followed a the notion that a goal is just a dream, until written down, acknowledged, and then a pathway created-as to how one will achieve that dream (goal).

There are a lot of things I want to do and accomplish in life, some I know will take years, others I hope to complete much sooner.

Here's the list, in no particular order-since a goal is a goal no matter how big or how small. Some are big dreams, others for fun, some serious, some not so serious.....enjoy. :)
