imageProbably one of the most important lists of your life to create is a bucket list. It gives your life direction, shows off your personality, and helps you rediscover yourself when you need a moment to recollect yourself & recharge your batteries. A bucket list can be accomplished in a matter of hours, or a matter of lifetimes. It’s the one thing in your life you have complete control over, regardless, of if you get to check off its contents. Below is my personal bucket list. You can use it to help yours find direction, or, judge my lack of green check marks! Your pick! As always, thanks for reading.
