My Bucketlist

There are many things on this list that I have accomplished already earlier in this lifetime, but the reason I did them wasn’t the same reason that I am doing them this time around. 

I created this list to remind myself that life is worth living. My father died at the young age of 49, and while he enjoyed life to a certain extent, I don’t think he knew what accomplishments were his goals. I do think he was a great father and provider but he ignored himself a lot through it, I vow that I will never do the same.

Clicking on an item will take you to an explanation of the thing I am supposed to do or have done. I have used many sources in compiling this list. The prime resource for me was Richard Horne’s 101 things to do, other resources include other peoples’ lists and some google searches.
