My Bucket List

Inspired by a few bloggers I decided to create my own “Bucket List”. In short, a bucket list is a list of everything that you want to experience and achieve in your life. It can be everything! Yes, I know that my bucket list is long! However, I do think that I can complete everything on it! For me, personally, even the act of creating and writing down my bucket list is empowering. It constantly reminds me of what I am living and aiming for in this life! As a friend of mine once told me, “The life ahead of us is a fresh sheet of paper, and you get to be the author of your story”.

So, here’s mine bucket list! If you have personally experienced any of the things/activities below, feel free to share it with me in the comments section below. Thank you!
