My bucket list for the 9 years I have left to use

A bucket list isn’t hard to do. One day I sat and thought about the things I’ve done with my life, with my children, with my husband, and friends and it dawned on me. There was so much more I wanted to do. I knew I needed to make a bucket list and get to working on the things I wanted to do.

Have you ever made a bucket list? It’s basically a list of things you want and would love to do. A lot of people say its what you want to do before you kick the bucket but that sounds so like the end to me!

My bucket list is things I want to accomplish before I am 50!

If you read my post on 5 Boss Moves You Should Make in your 40s then you know I am all about not just living, not just saying oh well I am middle age and theres nothing super exciting or fabulous I can do now. Yes!!! You can do whatever your heart desires and age is nothing but a number.

We are amazing and fabulous right?

Well, here is my list of what I want to do before I am 50:

  1. Go to Africa
  2. Take an adventure to Antarctica
  3. Go to Australia
  4. Travel to Asia
  5. Go to Europe
