What’s in your Bucket?

Some call it a “Bucket List”, a list of things you’d like to accomplish before you “kick the bucket”. A more positive description would be a list of things you’d like to accomplish before you reach a certain birthday. 30? 40? 50? It’s your choice.

We’ve compiled a list of things that you may wish to accomplish at some point in your life. Some of these suggestions may turn into a life-long hobby once you try them out, others may just be something you only wish to accomplish once in your lifetime, just for the satisfaction of doing it. Or, “filling your bucket” one item at a time can, in itself, turn into a life-long hobby. See if any of these suggestions appeal to you. If so, get started! You’ll get a feeling of achievement with each completed task. Sometimes, striving for these goals is the one thing that keeps you going.
