I’m still on the fence as to whether I not I like the term Bucket List. I heard someone once say they hated the term because they didn’t want to accomplish things ‘because they were going to die.’ I understand the sentiment.
We could just call it a life list.
In any case, my list has changed over the years since I wrote my first one at nineteen. Items have been added, accomplished or just removed. I think the first version had ‘meet Michael Crichton’ on it. He was my favourite author at the time.
A few more highlights:
Things I’ve accomplished:
– Written/published a book.
– Started my own business.
– Traveled the world (at the time I meant to somewhere I’d never been, since I traveled rather extensively as a child.)
A few of the things I want to accomplish:
– Get a tattoo.
– Have a garden.
– Walk the John Muir Trail.
– Become fluent in a second language. (I’ve dabbled in languages, can curse in multiple languages, but I’m not as fluent as I’d like to be).
How about you? Do you have a bucket/life list? What’s on it? Have you actively tried to accomplish the things on it?
