Bucket List

Submitted on Aug 23, 2010 by  jae001

I am inspired by the movie, “The Bucket List.” I decided it is much easier to make a list and check it off as I reach my goals. If you haven’t seen it, I totally recommend it! I am going to start and see how many things I can get done before I die. I am not planning on dying anytime soon but I thought this would keep me on track to achieve my goals. There are so many things I would like to do. I am starting by writing them all down. So here I go.. baby steps…

My Bucket list

  1. Graduate from college
  2. See my youngest son graduate from High School
  3. Have a photograph taken with My Entire Family (In Laws included) somewhere beautiful
  4. Ride in a hot air balloon
  5. Help entrepreneurs in third world countries through ~ www.kiva.com
  6. Go to Italy
  7. Hike Machu Picchu ~ Peru
  8. Make a difference in someone else’s life

The Bucket List also inspired me. I hope that you have the opportunity to do all those things and more.

Great List! Going to Italy is on my Bucket List too and I was able to cross it off in March. You'll love it there! Good luck with your adventures!

I love lists too!! I had one that i wrote at the beginning of the year - only to have a positive diagnosis of hiv a few months ago. Also within the last few weeks loosing my hubby to Non-Hodgkins lymphoma. My whole life as i knew it has changed. I am trying to make a new list to reflect how things have changed - but can't seem to find anything that i really want to do now. Your list made me smile and think maybe I too can. xxxx
