It Always Seems Impossible Until It's Done

June 17, 2014

I don't know what possessed me to create a bucket list, but I am happy I did. My list helps me prioritize and figure out what's important to me. I feel such a sense of accomplishment when I cross something off of my list. For example, I wanted to get over my HUGE PHOBIA of public speaking so I put "be in a pageant" on my bucket list.


I admired how poise and elegant pageant women were and I've always wanted to try it. Never in a million years would I have thought I could do it — but I did. That pageant ended up being one of the most amazing experiences of my life and I plan on doing more pageants! I strongly encourage starting a bucket list even if you don't have many goals at first. You can always add goals along the way!




Bucket List Ideas:
1. Overcoming a fear
2. Places I want to travel to
3. Accomplishing something that is really important to me

4. Making a difference
5. Do something adventurous
6. Connection/Relationship goals
7. Education Goals
8. Health/Wellness goals
9. Learn or do something completely new, outside of my comfort zone

Don't make all of the goals difficult...make some of them ones that can be accomplished today...
