Before We Kick the Bucket…

I honestly don’t know what a bucket list is. I just have a list of things that I want to accomplish before I leave earth. 😀 And then, I’ve read somewhere that the so-called list is called a bucket list!

These are the top things to do in my bucket list. Some are silly and out of this world, but who cares?!  As long as we have the will to do these things, even in the name of fun, it is still worthy to be included in the bucket list. To make it more fun, you can put a timeline for the completion of each to-do item.

Please feel free to share your bucket list by leaving a link on my comments section below. Let us share our bucket lists and inspire others to do the same. 🙂

      • Well said we can do anything but not everything. But if someone asked me what I want to do before I die I’ll say I want to learn & see as much I can & then share this with the whole world.
        What would you do If you need to pick only one thing from your bucket list ?

      • ~ great question. the 1st one written under the MUST category. if u ask what would I do specifically, maybe the charity. it’s been a dream of mine ever since. besides, having a family will eventually happen and having a business can happen through hard work and determination. but the charity? hmmm, it is a bit hard. what do you think?

      • Great ! I don’t think charity is something you can say bit hard. I believe if you are willing to be helpful then the universe show you many ways to do it. When we are able to put a smile on someone else face without any personal reason is a form of charity to me.
        Good luck may you able to do all kind of charity and everything you want to.
