my bucket list

”If you haven’t heard about the bucket list, a bucket list is a list of all the goals you want to achieve, dreams you want to fulfill and life experiences you desire to experience before you die” – personal excellence

In Sweden I have a quite secure life and I often fall into routines, I have an apartment, a job, training, friends, sometimes I even have a boyfriend… I get stuck here and time passes by without I’m really being conscious of it.

I came across a friends’ bucket list, and I fell in love with the idea. After making my own bucket list, it gave me lots of new life enthusiasm, now I have something to live for and to look forward too, something to achieve! It’s a great feeling to look forward to your life.

One of my biggest fears is that when I’m old, I look back at my life and regret not have done enough in my life when I could. Having a bucket list will insure that I’m getting the most out of my life. For every thing I have experienced and can check from this list, I’ll come a little bit closer to life satisfaction.

As you can notice, most of my bucket list is about traveling. I noticed that myself when I started writing down things I want to do before I die.

Now it’s a part of this travel blog and I will make a link to the post I’ll write about it when I’ve completed something from the bucket list.

Keep checking in to see what I have added or checked off. Feel free to get inspired.
