Bucket List word cloud #1

Just write one already! You’ll be crazy surprised at some of the items in a few years. Think of it as present Self kicking future Self in the Carpe Diem.

I realize I cannot motivate you without sharing a few gems from my own list. I give these up only in the hope that they will inspire you to do things similar or totally opposite to them. After all, a bucket list should be full of slightly crazy things you need to write down to gather the courage to ever attempt.

Colleen’s Bucket List: A Sample

  • Drive a dog sled team.
  • Help build our cabin.
  • Publish my writing.
  • Backpack for a week or longer.
  • Zipline. In Costa Rica.

Of course, your bucket list can (and should!) contain the seemingly mundane things that support these and other dreams. More from my list:

  • Learn to bellydance.
  • Speak Spanish.
  • Knit a sweater.
  • Own land.

May I pry? What’s on your bucket list?
