Have you ever noticed how sometimes the Universe wants you to think about something? Well, this past week I stumbled across a friend’s blog and saw a great post on her Bucket List (for those who don’t know, a Bucket List is a list of things you want to do before you die or “Kick the Bucket”). Shortly thereafter, a group I’m in started talking about Bucket Lists too.
As someone who loves lists and dreaming, it’s strange that I have never written one out. (Further to that, one of my nicknames in High School was Bucket. Clearly, this is THE list for me). Well, I can take a hint. Clearly now is the time for me to start thinking about it. I think I may even make a separate “Bucket List” page, up at the top of the blog here, so that I can update it as I accomplish things.
I will also include things I have done that were on my mental list.
