My Mini-Bucket List

Where to Begin?

(Updated January 2024) People often recommend having a 'Bucket List,' but sometimes it's hard to know where to start especially when you are in a phase of your life where you are rediscovering yourself. When I was in that stage I started with a mini bucket list and expanded it as I began to explore more about myself.

Reflecting on my list 10 years later 

As I look back on this first real bucket list, I found I had a theme. I began to see who I am to the core from analyzing this list comparing it to my goals and dreams I have now. 

My free time to do what I enjoy, my kids, adventure, my Jeep and conquering my fears are still experiences and goals I want to achieve.
