It's the new year, time for resolutions, yadda, yadda, yadda. This year, I thought I would revisit my bucket list. And then I thought, "Wait...do I even have a bucket list?" Turns out, I can't remember ever sitting down and making a list of all the things I want to see and do before I kick the bucket.
And just what exactly is a bucket list? Is it simply a to-do list to check off? Or is it a list of actions that somehow represent the person we want to be?
If I made a bucket list in my 20s, I might have been able to check a few things off. Like getting married, having a child, career success, traveling to another country, and saving a life. Now it's a bit different. For what it's worth, here is my first draft of my Bucket List.
