My Bucket List Experience
Create and track goals, achieve them and experience a lifetime of adventure.
Why do I always add more things to my bucket list?
A bucket list is a list of goals you want to achieve before you die, before you "kick the bucket". Why would I ever want to finish something like that? I don’t plan on dying any day soon and the bucket list is a fun way to challenge my competitive self.
In the game kick the bucket, I’m sure we all played as kids, the object of the game is to end it by kicking the bucket, however that was never my favorite part. I lived for the adrenaline filled chase from my competitors. I would jump between bushes and make a lot of noise always in view to keep their attention but never close enough that I might get caught or accidentally knock over that shiny coffee can, ending all my fun.
In a way that’s how I like to live my life, just out of deaths reach. Close enough to grab his attention but always out of reach.
My bucket list isn’t about dying, it’s about living.
Why I Started A List And Why You Should Too
The bucket list has changed me. A year and a half ago, you would not even recognize the me then, compared to the me now. It all started with a visit to a spa; while I was visiting my mom, she took me in to meet her pedicurist, my current boss. See I told you this list changed me. Turns out this spa owner is also a life coach, holistic teacher and Canadian author.
She gave me one of her books to read, 'Fairy Tales, Dreams and Reality...Where Are You On Your Path?'. And boom, like the big bang theory, that’s the moment I believe, "the new me" was created.
For those of you who have not read the book yet, I highly recommend that you do. It’s about shifting your life and creating one worth living. While reading her book, I realized I was not living for myself but for others, and I NEEDED to be selfish. I needed to think about MY goals and dreams and why I hadn’t achieved any of them yet.
