There are so many things I want to do, places I want to see, and experiences I want to have in my lifetime. This is a mental bucket list…but it’s time to put it to paper. Then I have a constant reminder of my dreams.
First, I found a journal I loved. Find a journal or pad of paper that feels special to you. Something you can’t wait to pick up and look through. Then you just need to go for it…..DREAM! Write all kinds of things you would like to accomplish, see, and do. I set a goal of 100 items to begin with. That might be somewhat ambitious, but it really gets you to delve into things you have always wanted to do.
When I first started my bucket list I took a couple of hours to myself and just wrote down everything I could think of. Escape to a corner of your house, a coffee shop, or a favorite area in your town. Go somewhere that may inspire you. When I was a working mom we were constantly asked to create BHAG’s – Big Hairy Audacious Goals. With your bucket list, don’t feel like any item is too big, because you really never know.
Be sure to add to this list as you go through life whether it be yearly, monthly, or every couple of years. It is fun to look back and see things that you have accomplished on it, or things that you may have forgotten were on the list.
Have fun and DREAM BIG!
