Let’s talk bucket lists. You know, the things you want to do before you die. Most people immediately think of things like skydiving, which is something I totally did last year and the picture above is proof! Yes, that’s me at 14,000 feet plummeting to the earth! It was both terrifying and thrilling and I highly recommend it! Bucket lists can definitely include crazy adrenaline rushing events but they can also include more normal things, deeper things, and well, anything really.
I decided to put my bucket list on my website for two reasons. First, putting it in writing and out there for the world to see motivates me to keep crossing things off the list instead of just talking about them. Also, you might see something on the list you could help me accomplish and that would be amazing. When you look at my bucket list, you’ll notice the first twelve on the list are things I’m working hard to cross off in 2018 (don’t judge me for #7)! You will also notice lots of things already crossed off which makes me want to keep adding things.
But also, #8 on my bucket list is to help someone cross something off their bucket list. I am partnering with one of my favorite groups, Live Your List, to help make a dream come true for someone! Live Your List was created by Ryan Eller and Jerrod Murr and they believe in not only having a bucket list, but making things happen now! In fact, Ryan Eller has a fantastic book coming out that you should preorder today and I promise it will help motivate you to start crossing things off.
If you’re wondering, what’s the point? Is having a bucket list really worth it? I say YES! I’m a big believer in goals and dreams and I also believe we get one shot at life and it is meant to be LIVED! Crossing off something symbolizes a great accomplishment no matter how big or small it is. It’s an experience you’ve never had before and these experiences help to create a more meaningful life. You will believe in what is possible for you life and you’ll want to go after what seems impossible!
I want to help you and you help me. Let me help you help me help you. Leave a comment below with something that’s on your bucket list. I’ll pick one person and help you make it come true. Pretty awesome, right? And if you don’t have a bucket list, start one today. Just start writing out your list – go ahead and include some things you’ve already done so that you can cross it off!
