It Always Seems Impossible Until It's Done

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 10. THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX AND TARGET DIFFERENT AREAS OF MY LIFE Don't make all of the goals difficult...make some of them ones that can be accomplished today...
