Bucket list

The bucket list Life To Do List
Bucket list; a list of things to do before you die a.k.a. “kick the bucket” – in my interpretation rather; things you would like to do, while living; Life to-do-list.

I urge everyone to create a personal list, short, long, modest or ambitious:

  • Putting dreams (goals) into spoken/written words often make them come true.
  • Avoid wasting precious time, go explore (also locally) and share happy moments.

Bucket_List

My list is 1) incomplete (much is on daily agenda instead), 2) open to suggestions and
3) dreamy, unrealistic (money-wise) …

  • My husband tells me to dream big no matter what.
  • My sister tells me to stop “bragging”, but I post to share ideas. Share yours, please.
