One Life, One Bucket List And 50 Things To Do Before I'm Done

Hopes and dreams truly do keep a person going through times of discouragement.

One Life, One Bucket List And 50 Things To Do Before I'm Done
Thomas Wilson III

I am someone who genuinely LOVES to try new things and experience all that life has to offer. We as humans are truly overwhelmed with all that God has given us. I love to dream and imagine the things that I want out of life, especially in times of isolation. I mean we are only here once... it's not fun to be sad, angry or annoyed! Why waste your time that way?

While on a plane ride a few months ago, I thought that it could be fun to come up with a Bucket List. Thinking about completing these activities (maybe even some with the potential woman of my dreams) has me super exhilarated to the point of euphoria.

I think that we should all create a tangible list like this that we can look at in times of distress. Hopes and dreams truly do keep a person going through times of discouragement! It's super fun to be anxious about something! Additionally, we are always told to set goals.. so why not create a Bucket List?

While I may not complete all of these by the time I say goodbye to this wonderful world, these are the endeavors I hope to have exposed myself to by the time I die:

1. Go to Yellowstone National Park

2. Tour the White House

3. Visit Mount Rushmore

4. Go to the Top of the Empire State Building

5. Drive a Rolls-Royce

6. Drive on the AutoBahn

46. Go to the Thanksgiving Parade in NYC

47. Eat a Lobster in Maine

If I could complete even half of these I would be a very fortunate man. Let me know if you'd like to join me in any of these endeavors ;). Have a great life, guys!

The longer we can remain simple in thought, the more relaxed we will be! Don't let the perils of everyday life (work, school, etc.) get to you. Life is about LIVING, not just existing. Make your mark on the lives of those around you!
