My Bucket List

So do you know what you want to be when you grow up? I should know considering I am 40 right??  And according to my friend, half dead! (gee, thanks Traci).  Well, I am a mother, wife, registered nurse, part-time secretary ( for my husbands business), aspiring writer, chauffeur ( for my kids), tutor- the list can go on and on.  But is there more I want to do with my life?  When they read my eulogy when I die would I be satisfied with what it said? Will I be content with everything I have achieved in my life?  What more do I want to do or complete?

So, here comes my "life bucket list".  I'm completing a list of 50 things that I would like to do before I die.  Does 50 seem extreme considering some of my items might seem extravagant (to me anyway) "Canadian wildlife adventure" anyone??  I don't think so...I think 50 is a perfect number!  I think it would be gratifying for me to write these things down and check them off as I complete them.  By seeing them on paper might aspire me to go after my dreams. I think it would be beneficial for everyone to have a "bucket list".  I might even have my kids join me on this adventure.  It would be interesting and fun to see what they would write on their "bucket list".  Something we can look back on years from now!  What is on your "bucket list" ?
