my bucket list.

Inspired by friends, articles I’ve read online, and allllll of the stuff that I’ve read about setting goals, I’ve decided to share my bucket list with you. I sat down to write this list soon after I got married – and while it is in no way complete [because I don’t think I’ll ever stop adding to it], I commit to modifying & revising it to reflect what I’ve accomplished and what else I want to accomplish as time goes on [I’ll post this list up on a new page]. And I have also included things that I’ve already done before [underlined] to the list…because I still want to do them at least one more time before I kick the proverbial bucket. 🙂

Sidenote: I didn’t originally write this list with the intention of publicizing it, but I AM because:

  1. Publicizing it means I’m now accountable to the world for my list, which is simultaneously terrifying and exciting!
  2. When I was considering publicizing it, I noticed that I was feeling a bit [read: a LOT] nervous about sharing it! My Crazy was going “WHAT WILL PEOPLE THINK OF YOUR GOALS?! WHAT IF PEOPLE THINK THEY’RE STUPID?!” Well, I’ve noticed that whenever my Crazy starts running its mouth, it’s usually a great opportunity for me to widen my comfort zone [not that I always take it!! but this time I am…], so here I go!

In no particular order, here’s my bucket list:

  • Skydive
  • Go on a safari in Africa
