Happy friday ya’ll!! To challenge myself to write more, welcome to the first instalment of “Bucketlist Friday” in which we will talk about dreams, passions, pursuits, challenges … and how we can live our lives that God has given us to the fullest!
A couple years ago I started “Monday Minute” which was a quick snippet of wisdom from the Word and something that was on my heart to write about. Well, I’m bringing MM back! Aside from pretty pictures, I really want this blog to have some depth, challenge and hope.
For today’s BF post, I wanted to share with you my OWN list! Well, at least a few highlights.
In my early 20’s I started writing down on a 8.5×11 blank sheet of paper the things I wanted to see happen in my life. Here are a few that have been accomplished, and a few yet to be realized.
1. Go to a Broadway show
2. Visit Buckingham Palace
3. Write short stories for a magazine
4. See British castles
5. Go to an opera
6. Learn Irish dancing
7. Go para-sailing
8. Write a book
9. Fly in a helicopter
10. Backpack Europe
1. Design/decorate my own home
2. Get married and raise a family
3. Ride in a hot air balloon
4. Meet a king/queen
5. Swim with dolphins
6. Build a school in Africa
7. Own a scooter
8. Sleep under the stars
9. Have a book on the New York Times Bestseller list
10. Go to a southern gospel church
There you have it! My list is inching the 50 mark, and every time some dream is realized, I put a check mark and the year beside it. How about you? Do you have a list? Even if all of it never gets accomplished in a lifetime, there is something about the act of dreaming and writing it down that gets you outside the ‘every day humdrum’.
So… what’s #1 on your list? 😉
