Bucket List

Do the things you want while you still have time! The only rules are to strike things off and constantly update. Create your own adventures.



With all the obligations that we all have on the day-to-day basis, it is essential that we make time for the things that make us happy. Doing things that we enjoy often gets placed on the back burner. You then blink and 10 years has passed and you still haven’t accomplished anything you wanted. One fun and effective strategy for ensuring that you take the time you need for the "more fun things" in life (as well as some important goals you may have) is to create a "bucket list”.


Some people like to create a list of things they hope to do before they die, but I specifically create bucket lists that I need to tackle within a 24 month period. If I haven’t accomplished it within the first 12 months then I still have time to complete the list within the following year. When everything is checked off, then the goal is to create a new list for the next 24 months. You’ll be surprised what you are able to accomplish when you equally focus and prioritize the “fun” things and the “must do” things of your life.


Hopping on the bandwagon of making your first bucket list will help you get in touch with yourself. It will allow you to discover what you value most, it will remind you on what your goals are in life, it will help spark some creativity, and best of all, it will allow you to grow mentally, spiritually and physically all while maintaining your happiness. 


A good way to keep track of what you have and haven’t done is to keep a checklist. Once you complete the task, you check it off and move to the next item on your list. By no means is there a wrong and right way of doing this. Some items will be easier to accomplish than others. Which is OK.  If you are the creative type, like myself, you can take your list a step further by taking a picture of you completing “the goal”. That picture you take will represent the completed task on your list. When your list is completed, you’ll have a pile of pictures to validate, share and look back on your accomplishments. Keep in mind, 24 months is just a target. If you get to the end of your 24 months and you aren’t finished, then just add them to the next list. I will be sure to share my journey with you all. Feel free to share your own experiences with me too!
