my bucket list

Today I was inspired to post my bucket list. It started years ago with my best friend Rachel and has been added to ever since. I have not thought much about my bucket list lately, but as I was reading another blog, I really felt inspired to blog it. It was really interesting to me to sit down and think about what my bucket list would have on it (beyond what I had already put on there). In some ways it was hard to come up with this list! Thinking about all of the things I would really love to do is not easy, but this is a pretty fair list of things that have been crossed off but also what I am looking forward to in the future. I realize that my life is unpredictable, we never know how much time we have on this earth, but assuming I will be around for awhile, these are many of the things that I pray I get to see come to pass in my lifetime. There are lots of places I want to travel, and many more that are not on this list. This earth we live on is so breath-taking. I want to experience as much of it as possible. I want to experience the people, the food, the daily lives, the struggles and successes, and the reality of this world. Traveling can do that, and I pray I get to spend some time doing that on this beautiful planet. I will continue to add to this list as more comes to mind and as life happens. Here it is for now. Enjoy it- and if we have some similar bucket list locations, lets go together! 🙂
