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.


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.
