My Bucket List

The goal is to win life – I have never taken the liberty to dream too big; while people I know still think there’s a chance of them owning mansions and palaces, I’m grateful for the four walls that surround me and keep me warm. With that said, I do dream (a lot!), but almost all of them are things I want to experience; I don’t need a photo/selfie to enjoy my experiences as long as I live it!

Since all of my dreams are in my head, they have never been a priority. Not anymore! The purpose of this post is to remind myself that I should pursue these goals and that no dream is too small or too big to achieve.

Note – This list will be constantly updated when there are more goals and dreams I want to fulfill.

Why have a bucket list?

The game of life is a lot like football. You have to tackle your problems, dribble past your fears, and score your goals when you get the opportunity.

You’re home alone, complaining about there being nothing on television or how the calls from your ‘best friends’ from school or college have dried up, you’re waiting and desperate for something to excite you, to get you on your feet. A bucket list is exactly that kind of fuel that’ll wake you up, making you work towards an ultimate (or not so ultimate) goal. It’s a kind of shopping list of life experiences.
