We all have a bucket list.
A personalized list of things we want to do, people we want to see, and goals we want to accomplish.
We also have a tendency to put off our bucket list items.
But not this year.
This year, we want you to soar.
We want you to live it up, and see everything there is to see!
To inspire you, we’ve created a little bucket list of our own… check it out, and start yours today!
#1 Put at least one new stamp on your passport.
Travel is a bucket list staple! Now, I know traveling all over the world may not be in a lot of people’s budget, but this year I want you to reach for at least one destination.
Explore a new culture, take in a change of scenery - you will be glad you did!
#2 Visit a state park or national park.
While big/international vacations are great - there is a lot of value in exploring your own homeland too! State and national parks are beautiful - and there is pretty much always one within driving distance!
Make a day of it - pack a lunch, grab some friends, and don’t forget your camera!
#3 Gain a new skill.
You can never have too much knowledge. There’s always room to learn more - and there’s a big world out there to learn from!
Hobbies are a great place to start - you could learn anything from painting techniques & pottery making to archery or surfing - the possibilities are endless!
#4 Do something that scares you.
Does the thought of swimming with sharks make you shudder?
Does the idea of skydiving make you weak in the knees?
Then these are exactly the type of activities that should be on your bucket list. Conquering your fears is a big step, and one some of us never get to accomplish. But if you can put your fear aside, we say, jump in!
#5 Go on a road trip
Whether planned - or not - road trips are a great way to get out and explore!
Fill up the tank, pack some clothes, grab some snacks, crank up the tunes, and let the road be your guide!
#6 Make a commitment - and stick to it
That lifestyle change you’ve been wanting to make? Do it.
That job you’ve been wanting to leave? Quit.
That proposal you’ve been dying to make? Tonight's the night.You only live once. If there is something you’ve been wanting to do, now is the time to do it. Make the commitment - and stick to it!
This year, do something completely selfless.
But when you do, do it to be completely selfless.
Don’t do it for a job, or to make yourself “look good”. Do it because you genuinely want to help and make a difference or impact someone else’s life for the better.
#8 See at least one of the World's Seven Wonders
Depending on where you live, this may require an extra stamp on your passport - but believe me, it’ll be totally worth it!
They don’t call them the seven wonders of the world for no reason, y’know. ;)
#9 Sleep under the stars
There’s nothing quite like a night spent outdoors, shut off from technology.
A roaring fire by your side, the sound of nature all around you, and billions of stars lighting up the night sky.
Whether with friends, or the love of your life - make sure you do it at least once this year!
#10 Write something
You don’t have to be a published author - or even have the aspirations of being one. All you need is your thoughts. Write a letter, a blog, a memoir - anything that puts your ideas and dreams into action instead of keeping them bogged up in that beautiful brain of yours. And don’t be afraid to share it!
Your friends and family will love having a glimpse into your world.
2018 is your year.
Get out there and conquer it!
