101 Things in 2015

Wednesday, December 03, 2014

I've been thinking a lot about my Bucket List, and decided to make it official.

A few weeks ago, I shared the Top Ten Things on My Bucket List. Prior to writing that down, I hadn't put much thought into a bucket list. I kept saying there were things I'd like to do someday, but I guess it was just never a top priority. However, after I really set down those ten things, I started thinking about what would actually be on my bucket list if I had one

I didn't like the idea of an unachievable bucket list, or one that seemed too unpractical. But I recently found a list of 300 things to do in your life, and decided to take that and make it my own. Some of the items on that list I had absolutely no desire to ever do, and there were a few things I wanted to do that weren't listed.

I went through their list, and created one of my own. And from that, I picked out what I wanted to do over the next year.

And now I'm sharing it with you. So here you go... In no particular order,

  2. What an awesome list of things to do in 2015!! I have a "Bucket List" - but at 63 I prefer to call it my "Things I Want to Do" list instead of "kick the bucket" list!! I haven't counted them - but have them typed up and thought I'd post it on my blog sometime! I've crossed off the ones already done; and want to also do a scrapbook with pictures of those already done! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Wonderful list! I gleaned some good ideas as well!!

  4. That's quite the impressive list for one year! I hope you'll keep us posted on your accomplishments :).
