Bucket List

I've been working on my bucket list. Do you have one? If not, I highly suggest giving it a go. Maybe you'll have time to knock of all the items on your list, maybe you won't, but it would be a shame if you never gave it a try at all. Your list might be composed of simple things, such as visiting the West Edmonton Mall in Alberta. Perhaps your more inclined to include edgier items to your list, such as jumping out of a plane once before you die - with a parachute of course! It doesn't matter; everyone has different interests. Make your bucket list your own, and start planning how you're going to get it done! Let's look at some interesting examples.

How about a tour of the Canadian Rockies in a motor home? If you're into majestic scenery and all that nature has to offer, you couldn't choose a better location. From Lake Louise, to Jasper, the Canadian Rockies are nothing short of stunning. Don't let it discourage you if you live on the other side of the world and can't afford a trip to Canada. I'm sure there are places to see closer to home that offer similar awe inspiring opportunities. Plan your trip and make it happen!

What about a trip to the Super Bowl? At least for North Americans, this is on a lot of peoples bucket list. There are other sporting events around the world that might be more to your liking. Perhaps the Champions League Final in Europe? Or how about attending  the final of one of the Grand Slam tennis tournaments around the world? It doesn't matter. The point is you should find a way to make those once in a life time opportunities happen for you. Then you can look back on life with few regrets.

Do you like to sing in the shower? Perhaps everyone in your family is always telling you what a great voice you have? There are numerous televised talent competions around the world. Why not audition for America's got talent? Or whatever your countries version is. Why live with regrets, and wonder what might have been? Take control of your life.

These are just a few examples of what you might consider for your list. It's all about what interests you. Your list will likely be very different than mine, and that's okay. Your bucket list should reflect your goals, and your outlook on life. Start today, and feel free to drop me a line. I'd love to hear your ideas.
