Waking Up to Realize Life is Passing You By January 16 2015, 0 Comments

Do you have a Bucket List?

I never did until a year and half ago. I don't know why I didn't. I guess I thought when I get older, I'll do all those things. Well, one day I woke up and realized ~ I am older. Now my motto is all about Living Life to the Fullest. 

I really didn't know where to begin with my list. So I started small with a mini bucket list with small attainable goals.

Mini Bucket list 8-8-2013 

As I began checking off completed goals, I would add more to the list. 

Then I started to expand my bucket list with --

Things I want to see & do
Things I want to accomplish
Things that bring joy to others
Things that help me find joy and happiness

This past year I was able to check a lot of my Bucket List. 

Ride a Cable Car in San Francisco

Walk the Golden Gate Bridge

Get Bigger Tires for My Jeep 
        I just went ahead and got a Rubicon but, I still want                 bigger tires 

Visit Yosemite National Park

Join a monthly Poker Game 
Instead I do a monthly Mom's NighOut!

Get Rock Sliders for My Jeep 

Get a Tattoo

As I make progress on my list I continue to add to it. Every couple of months I take time to reflect and revise my list. I still need to come up with idea's that will bring joy to others and things that will help me find joy and happiness. Looking back at experiences I wanted when l was younger will be a good start.  I just need to dig deep into my memory because as you know the older you get, the worse your memory gets.   

I can't wait to see what this year will bring.
