epic bucket list

More than 20 years ago I started a bucket list.  Now, I am reviving the list, adding new things and taking it from the pages of my bullet journal to out in the open so that the light reminds me to keep my focus on the adventure in life and to keep moving! 

These are some of the things I hope to accomplish over the next five years.  Yep, I know it’s a lot, but I learned that I don’t need to worry about how it’s going to happen, I just have to believe that it will and (most importantly) take ACTION as soon as I see it. 

I’ll be posting from time to time, bringing us back to the list, adding to it and showing progress as we go along. These aren’t in any particular order, and some are clearly more epic than others.  The times in my life that I’ve had more travel and adventure has always been when I felt most fulfilled, so I hope to create more opportunities for adventure along the way.

What about you? What are the things on your bucket list?  Share it!  I totally believe in letting people know so that they can be a bridge to help you (and you can help them!).
