What’s on your bucket list?
A bucket list? What’s that all about? And why do people have them? Let’s start with…
What a bucket list is not:
- something you take the beach. Shovels should not be on your list, but sand might be.
- a picnic basket. So leave the fried chicken, potato salad and coleslaw at home.
- a watering container. Though a bucket can be filled with water; in this case, you might want to keep it dry.
A bucket list is a list of activities or places you would like to do/visit before moving to another area (or before your death).
Activities on a bucket list might include:
- bungee jumping
- riding in a hot air balloon
- scuba diving
- hang gliding
- sky diving
- motorcycle racing
- zip lining
- deep sea fishing
- flying solo in a plane
- tornado chasing
- rock climbing
- and more activities that appear to be a challenge, or may cause death in and of themselves.
Places you might have on your bucket list:
- Paris, France
- The North Pole
- National Parks
- and others
What other things might be on your bucket list?
- finish college
- start a new career
- get married
- have children
- visit every major league sports park
- drive through every state in the continental US.
- take the family on a cruise
- travel to the moon
- learn a new language
As you can see, bucket lists can contain anything that you have not accomplished yet. There are many more ideas available. You just might want to take some time to google it. Be sure to print out the lists and use a marker to highlight all of your favorites. Add a date of when it will be accomplished.
Or create your own. Take five minutes right now and close your eyes. Start dreaming. Where would you like to go? What would you like to do or accomplish? What new foods would you like to eat? The list goes on. Open your eyes and start writing them down. And then cross them out when you’ve completed it. Better yet, take a photo and start your own Bucket List Album. Have some fun and involve others in the process.
