So lately I've been coming across these lists & pictures on pinterest of things that people want to do before they die.
Have you seen these things?
Its really interesting to look through and see what some people truly aspire to do with their lives. Some of them are super lame. Like, 'Meet Zac Efron.' or 'Wear a Disney princess dress to my wedding.' My personal favorite was; 'Have someone I love make me a heart shaped pizza.' I'm not making this stuff up, people! There is a whole website dedicated to the fine art of bucket-listing.
I made my own board on pinterest involving these things, but I only included ones I have already done, or things I have already accomplished.
Some of them include;
Visit ground zero
Hold a lion cub.
Meet someone famous.
Rescue an animal.
Take a yoga class.
Go on safari.
Check, Check, & Check!
But it got me thinking about my current bucket list and all I have yet to check off. I don't have a timeline for any of these things, nor do I really have any agenda as to how or when I will accomplish them. But I think its good to set goals and I'm hoping that if I read over this list in a few years I can say, "oh! I did that!" Check.
