Hey all you readers out there! Thanks for joining me. Today I want to talk about something that changed my entire outlook on life. A bucket list! For those of you who don’t know a bucket list is just a list of experiences or achievements you put together in hopes of completing it within your lifetime. I grew up in a pretty small town and unfortunately that meant growing up living by small town standards and ideas. I always felt like a misfit growing up. I knew there was something I was missing. I wanted to know what living life to the fullest felt like. So I got a piece of paper and I wrote down ten things I wanted to do before I take my final breath. I was like 17 at the time so the list was pretty standard for your average teenage girl. You know things like Move to California, attend a Rihanna, concert, take a road trip with friends. The simple stuff. At the time I had no idea what I was getting myself into but as time passed and I learned about new things to try I kept adding to the list. Had I known then what I know now I would’ve taken advantage of all those years I wasted just writing things down and never acting on them. I’d like to show you my personal bucket list and how it’s grown so much since then and what I’ve crossed off so far.
