Why you need a bucket list and how to make one

 With answering these questions you can build your own bucket list for life. - Colleke Creations

Do you have a bucket list? 

You know a list of things you want to do before you die? A bucket list is not just for old or sick people.

A bucket list is kind of a to-do list for life.

A list of goals with things you want to accomplish in life.  But you can also create a bucket list or goals list for a year or before you turn a certain age before you have kids ( although that's a little too late, right mama?)

My 14-year-old has a bucket list together with her BFF. 

Things like, go on a double date, learn sign language and swim with turtles are on her bucket list.  I love that.  It means she's thinking about her future, what she wants to do, what she wants to experience.  And I hope she takes that concept with her in life.  I believe if you have a goal, you live your life intentionally.  You know what you want and you are prepared to work for it. 

If you have a bucket list, why not looking over? 

Maybe you want to add something or check off something you've done. 

If you don't have a bucket list yet,

grab a notebook and a pen, a cup of tea ( or coffee)  and start writing down all the things you want to do.  

Answer these questions:

  • are you happy with your life?

  • what would make it even better?

  • are there certain places you want to visit and why?

  • what would make your career even more challenging?

  • is there a sport or game you want to learn?

  • are you afraid of something? And what can you do to get rid of that fear?

  • is there someone from your past, a teacher or friend you would like to talk to again?

  • what would you like to do for someone else to make a difference in someone's life?

  • what childhood thing would you like to do again, now that you are an adult?

  • what “miracle” from mother nature would you like to experience?

  • what skill do you want to master? Or what class would you like to follow?

  • do you play an instrument?  Would you like to learn to play one?

  • where would you like to live?

To hold you accountable for doing things from your bucket list, tell people about it.

It could be, you inspire them to make one of themselves.  Wouldn't it be fun to do and cross off things together? 

Tell me in the comments: Do you have a bucket list? Would you make one? What would be on it?
