My Bucket List

As you can probably notice, I want to live a fulfilling, positive, and happy life. 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.

  2. 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.

    Wow, you’ve inspired me to make my own list 🙂 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!

  6. 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.

  7. #14! I’m hoping to go to Europe with some of my college friends next summer. Wish me luck!

  8. I love this idea for your blog! I might just add it to mine! 🙂 thanks for visiting my blog today!

  9. I just crossed ziplining from my list, that was awesome!!! when you are ready to for NY fashion show, please shoot me an e-mail 🙂 I’ll join you.

  13. Oh my goodness thats one hefty list girl! You’ve done alot already!
    I don’t know if I could even come up with that many things…I’d have to really think about it. Good luck 🙂

    • 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 🙂

      • 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?

      • Remember when we wrote them?! I’m setting out for 5 goals a year. I’m in the midst of narrowing it down. I’d like to take a peek at your list 🙂

Let's talk it out
