The Bucket List


The main reason creating a Pinterest account was not because of the large amount of outfits, hipster fashion, watches, snickers, ties and bows (imagining my friends’ faces now. Hah!) but to create a board with all my To Dos before I face the worms.

A Bucket list is a laminated (why not?) piece of paper hidden somewhere in a black covered agenda which contains all those things you want to do or accomplish before you, yeah, die, perish, dissolve or [insert synonym here]!

It’s not necessary a challenge what am I about to write but a sweet and really helpful recommendation. I want you to imagine your life, your whole life, and start writing down your goals and wishes down, put them somewhere safe. Keep track and focus on them, make sure you’re on the right path. Start accomplishing, make every little goal happen. Never forget that life has no space for NOs. With the right amount of patience, belief and a little bit of hard work everything is possible.

Listen to me, when I see my bucket list I get all welled up, full of energy and hope. I know I’m capable to go through every line, I can feel and imagine it so I plan for a happening, I schedule a couple (not all of them! A few that are measurable) for the upcoming months or years and I make them happen.

Oh, the joy I feel after completing one of them  Life gets a little bit bigger and colorful. You know, the excitement of living the dream, that dream that I once wrote on a piece of paper while day dreaming. Life can be wonderful. We only need to believe and see it with our eyes!
