If you don’t already have one, sit down right now and create a bucket list.
A bucket list is a list of activities that you want to complete, places that you want to visit, or people that you want to meet, before you die. For many of us, we can easily think of these things, but do we ever make an effort to get them done? A bucket list serves to motivate you to try new things and attempt to live life to the fullest. Browse the internet for examples of bucket lists if you wish. For example, if you love the ocean, have you ever thought about trying scuba diving? If you like staying in shape, have you considered signing up for your first marathon or triathlon? If you enjoy traveling, where do you most want to explore? Remember to check things off of your list as you complete them and add new ideas as they come along. Years from now, some of these will provide great stories and memories for you to reflect on and share with others. You probably won’t remember the time that you bought that expensive outfit or new technological gadget; you’ll remember the time that you backpacked through Europe with a good friend, hiked the highest mountain in your country, or learned a new language or musical instrument. Though some of these can be expensive, there are some things that are just downright worth it. Follow the money-saving tips on this blog (and others) so that you can do some of the things that you hope to accomplish before your times comes, and start living your best life.
Feel free to share what’s on your bucket list in the comments below or read others’ suggestions for ideas to add to yours!
