Bucket Lists

 In Challenges, Tracey Ann Breese

There’s a lot of talk about Bucket Lists. So called, apparently, because of a film about a man who tried to ‘tick off’ a load of things before he died (excuse the poor description but I’ve still never actually seen it). So, a list of dreams, things we want to achieve, places we want to visit and things we want to do  becomes commonly referred to as a ‘Bucket List’.. which is slightly catchier than ‘a list of things to do before I die’ don’t you think? Some people make theirs time bound as in ‘things to do before I’m 40/50/60’, but whatever works for you really.

Ever since I can remember I’ve had one of these lists! Most of the things from my original list I have ‘crossed off’, but more and more have been added to it over the years.

In my typical style though this was never an ‘actual’ list.. I kept it all in my head. I do this a lot but as I get older I realise more of it is getting forgotten! So, I’ve been meaning to get it written down for ages and I thought I’d share it with you.

I’d love to see yours.. feel free to post it below.
