My Bucket List

“One day you will wake up and there won’t be any more time to do the things you have always wanted. Do them now.”

– Paulo Coelho

Well…that was a nice and depressing way to start this blog post. You are welcome!

I guess what I am trying to say is that most people (I really don’t wanna put this on everyone, I am sure there are wonderful exceptions out there) are great at procrastination and putting things off. We dream about going to places, meeting new people, trying out news things but then end up on the couch with a bucket of popcorn (no pun intended) and make ourselves believe that we will do all the things tomorrow…but then a new season of Scandal starts up and now we have to wait until winter break so we don’t miss any episodes…but then winter break approaches and then that couch has never looked so friendly and welcoming before…so we decide to wait until summer time…and there goes the whole year.

So get up from your couch, grab a pen and write down what you would like to see, learn, do in the next couple of months and no matter what…DO IT! Don’t push it to the side, don’t forget about it, just go out there and do it!!!! It will be such a great feeling, you will feel accomplished, you will feel happy and satisfied!

Today is a rainy day, looking out the window it would be hard to go anywhere really so I decided to make coffee, sit down and update my bucket list! 🙂 OH so many places to go to and so many things to do!

Questions for you:

  1. Do you have a bucket list?
  2. If yes, what are the 3 places you would like to visit? If you don’t, why not?
  3. What stops you from checking things off on your bucket list, if there is anything?
