I’m a simple woman with not much needs for expensive items or material things. As long as I am happy, then I am rich and content with what life has to offer; needless to say, I have long wanted to go to Hawaii. There are many reasons “Why Hawaii” is at the top of my list, but just to name a few - scenery, adventure, romance, and most importantly, relaxation.
A Bucket List is more than a list of my goals — it’s a compilation of my dreams. We often work toward our goals, but leave our dreams to the wayside, hoping they might happen on their own. While you go to work, day to day, with no plans of anything to look forward to, remember “Work Hard, Play Hard.” You must work towards your dreams, just like you work toward your goals.
That’s why it’s so important to have a Bucket List. Writing those dreams on paper turns them into goals, makes them attainable, tangible, doable — aspirations to work toward, instead of pipe dreams that might never happen.
My list keeps me moving forward. It’s a reminder of what I can look forward to, as well as what I’ve accomplished.
So what’s on my bucket list? Here’s a sampling:
Write a book

Getting my work published

Arrange an Woman’s Empowerment Event
 Marry a couple of people

Get paid to travel

Continue my education

Start a business

Backpack through Africa

Go skydiving

See more of the world (this has its own list)
 Earn a certificate as a life coach

Research my family’s genealogy

Get married
What’s on your bucket list? More importantly, what’s keeping you from crossing off those items?
