What is on your bucket list?

Do you know what a bucket list is? A bucket list is a specific list of things that you want to do in your lifetime. I think this is something great to have and update as needed. We all have things we desire to do, but they may be challenging to accomplish. Therefore, we create a bucket list! These may be short-term or long-term goals and anything in between. Our bucket list helps us reflect on what matters most to us, our personal values, and recognize significant experiences and milestones we want to have in our lifetime. I am interested to know what you have or would have on your bucket list. I will keep things fair and share what I have on my bucket list.

The first thing I have on my bucket list is to start an outline for the book I would like to write. I have had an idea of what I wanted to write about for years, but because of fear, I have not attempted to do so. I know how important it is to not allow fear to stop us from living which is why this means so much to me. The book I want to write is a story that is loosely based on my journey with moving to a new state when I was younger and getting diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. It is an experience that defines who I am today and where my strength comes from.

The second thing on my bucket list is to be able to go on my dream vacation. Of course, my dream vacation would be long and extremely expensive. Unless I win the lottery, I do not foresee my dream vacation coming true, but a girl can dream😊. This trip would start by flying to Long Beach, California where I would stay for one week. I would then fly from California to Hawaii where I would remain for another week. While In Hawaii, I would learn to surf, which would be terrifying and exciting. After the week in Hawaii, I would fly to Australia where I would stay for at least another week. The week in Australia would be spent seeing all the animals I find amazing and site seeing. The final week of my month-long vacation would be in the United Kingdom.  I am fascinated by different cultures and have a deep desire to experience as many as I can.

The third thing on my bucket list is to go back to school. Now that I am older and more mature, I have a better understanding of what my goals are and what I want from life. I think going back to school at my age would be challenging, especially working full-time, but it would allow me to fulfill my goals. I would want to go back for journalism. It is not easy getting a job in this field unless you have a degree or at least know someone in the industry.

My fourth thing on my bucket list would be to learn another language. I learned Spanish when I was in high school, but it is true what they say, if you do not use it, you lose it. Knowing a different language makes it easier to communicate with people from other countries and opens you up for new experiences. Only knowing one language makes things one-sided when there are many languages in the world.

The fifth thing I would love to be able to do is to help this world to have peace, comfort, love, and acceptance. I never understood why everyone cannot get along and treat each other fairly and with respect. If I am not mistaken, we are all human beings with a heart and feelings, so why should anyone think they are better than another? We are all equals and everyone should know and understand this. I am not sure if this will ever be accomplished, but I will never stop trying to make this reality!

Instead of living, some of us are just simply existing which in my eyes is often just barely breathing. In a world that is full of many opportunities, why would we not want to explore as many as we possibly can? Try thinking about the things you have experienced in life and others you want to accomplish. I have lived in the United States my entire life and find it to not be all it is “supposed” to be. Once upon a time, I thought I was living in a free country, but now that I am older and wiser, I am not so sure that is true anymore. I want opportunities to experience more out of life before the end of my life because we never know when the end will be.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I shared about my bucket list and hope you will share yours as well. I hope you are having a great week and it continues getting better until it is Friday again. We have made it halfway through the week and that is an accomplishment. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa
