Bucket List

This is my bucket list – a combination of all of the things I want to achieve in my life. Things on the list may change, I can add to it, and more, but it’s an evolving list of everything I want to do. When I complete an action on the list, I’ll write a post about it and mark it complete.

Inspired? Perhaps write your own list! Start with 10 items and let it grow from there – that’s what I did, and now I have over 100 things I want to do!
