When I first came across this bucket list idea I thought…Hmmm, that would be a fun thing to do! I put down a bunch of things I wanted to do in my lifetime – most which were too far fetched – just for fun. I didn’t even think I was going to achieve a fraction of them. Fast forward to a few years later, I went back to check on the list and realized I had actually achieved some of the things on the list. 

I am now a big believer of writing down your dreams no matter how impossible they seem. A dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by actions makes your dreams come true. Anything is possible. Stop dreaming about your bucket list and start living it!

Here is mine. It is a work-in-progress and I will be updating it as I go.
