The Bucket List

De-Clutter “Everyone has a bucket list!!!” one of my friends emphatically told me not too long ago.   Up until about that time, I didn’t.  That isn’t to say I didn’t have a list of things I want to do in my life…I did…they just weren’t written down.  I began to think about making such a  list when it dawned on me why having one is important.  Nothing is crossed off!!!  You don’t get a visual of all the things you have done that make your life so amazing.  Something to remind yourself that it isn’t all wake up and work and go to sleep.  My life was beginning to feel routine; something I have lamented about with many friends.  This would be the perfect way to spark some spontaneity back in my life!  So I approached my friend and told her I would make a list.  She suggested I include anything on my list that I have done with a “bucket list intention” even if were prior to now.  I also plan to add to it as ideas come to me.  For each new experience, I’ll blog about it.
