My Bucket List

There are so many things that I want to try, and things I want to accomplish. Some are very “small” everyday things, and others are major events that would require plans, creativity, and $$$. I have had a bucket list since I was 17 years old. It’s really long, and I’ve been adding items, crossing things off, and erasing some things too. They are not in any particular order. This list will definitely grow over time. For now, here it is in black and white…or grey ha ha!

    1. Well, I gave myself an entire lifetime to cross them off the long list! If I don’t set a goal, I’ll lose focus. I think everyone should have a list of goals that would make them happy (that’s what life’s all about right?). Thanks for taking a peek at mine šŸ™‚

      1. Mindy,
        Your list has grown. I am sure you can accomplish many of these! I still have my orignal list too! We can both complete 13 if you would like to be the illustrator?

  1. What a great list… lots are on my list, I guess I need to write them all down and cross them off for a sense of accomplishment. Great idea to share on your blog. When you do # 66. Will you share what you did? Reckless can mean a lot to different people. I’d love to hear what you do. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Wow, you’ve inspired me to make my own list šŸ™‚ I had a long time ago but, like to call a do over considering I was 13 when I made the first one and I no longer have it. I think at 23 my list would be quite different, haha.

    Have a nice evening!

  3. When you go to Egypt, don’t just see the pyramids: you have to go to the Valley of the Kings and go inside those pyramids. You can still see the paint on the walls, and it’s very beautiful. They don’t allow pictures in there, so you have to go see it for yourself in person. Also, Amsterdam — not really worth it. It’s cold and damp, even in the summer.
