There are many lists in my life. List of things to do, groceries to buy and reminders, lest I forget. Lists of qualities I look for in a man, a list of foods to stay on a strict diet and lists of goals I want to achieve. Things I want to accomplish in a year, in a month, this week and today.

But my most personal list of all is my list of dreams, goals, endeavours that I would like to accomplish in this lifetime. 

MY BUCKET LIST

Everyone’s Bucket List is not only unique and individual but also constantly changing and evolving throughout their lives, depending on their experiences, influences, inspirations and motivations.

A Bucket List can be a very personal thing because it exposes a part of you that most people would not know about unless they were to ask. It tells of your deepest desires of your heart and your hidden agenda for the future you envision for yourself. This is a list that can be very telling about the person you truly are and what you value most in your life.

I’ve decided to share mine with you as a way of putting it out there into the universe.

Although I have a lot of work to do to manifest these dreams I have, sharing them with the world strengthens my resolve that they will one day all happen before I kick the bucket.  So here they are:

1. Fall madly in love with an amazing man and get happily married.

2. Raise a healthy, functional family of my very own. (2 twin boys, 1 girl).

3. Travel somewhere abroad with my friends and/or significant other.

4. Get up on a Highline and finish my Skydiving Licence.

5. Start a business that makes a real difference in the world and helps others.

6. Bungee Jump, Skydive, Scuba and Highline all around the world.

7. Be successful in my career loving what I do and doing what I love for a living.

8. Live on a ranch with animals in a home that has a south facing patio so I can watch the sunrise and set everyday.

9. Hike Mt. Kilimanjaro and go on a safari to see the wildlife of Africa.

10. Write a book that inspires others by being my authentic self and following my passions.

Although my extended bucket list might have up to 100 items and is constantly evolving, this is a short list of the top ten and the most important things to me that I want to accomplish in this life.

I’ve learned a lot as the Vancouver Ambassador for The Bucket List Life and I’m grateful for the opportunity to contribute in writing the summaries for every episode of The Bucket List Life Podcast.

Screen Shot 2014-10-27 at 4.48.44 PMI have very much enjoyed listening to these conversations and stories shared, so far, by regular ordinary people like you and I, that live extra-ordinary fascinating lives.  The all live The Bucket List Life.  These podcast have inspired and moved me in so many ways.  The take-aways are rich and abundant.  One of the most useful tidbits that I have taken away with me it the power of this question:

“What’s on your bucket list?”

This is one of the best ways to really get to know someone and discover a side of them they don’t always share.

Try it next time you meet someone new or want to get to know your friends even better and watch their eyes light up, their energy rise and their excitement abound as they tell you about their passions, their dreams and what they find most important in this fragile, exquisite and finite life we live.
