My Bucket List – 101+ Things I Want to Do in My Life
If you haven’t heard of the term ’Bucket List’, it is a list of all the goals and dreams you want to fulfill and life experiences you desire to have before you die. I also call this my ’Dream List’.
’Life is a daring adventure or nothing at all.’ – Helen Keller
WHY CREATE YOUR BUCKET LIST?
Having our own ’Bucket List’ is like planning ahead the highlights we want in our lives.
The whole point of creating this list is to maximum every moment of our existence and live our live to the fullest. It is a reminder of all the things we want to achieve in our time here, so that instead of pandering our time in pointless activities, we are directing our time and effort to things that matter to us the most.
Creating and seeing our own ’Bucket List’ also creates excitement, knowing that there are so many things and experiences waiting for us to explore and achieve in life! It helps us to stay focus and experience more Fun, Freedom and Fulfilment in life!
So, if you are curious, here is my list below – with all the things I want to see, do, feel, experience, and achieve while I exist. I will continuously update this list as I complete current items and come across new ones.
I hope my list will inspire you to create your own too and make your life an Adventure!
