In the past couple years, bucket lists have become extremely popular. People are making summer bucket lists, college bucket lists, people are making bucket lists for everything in life. It started with just making a general bucket list of things you want to do before you die. I personally think that this is a wonderful idea for many different reasons.
People should always have goals that they are working towards. I think this is one of the great ways that we can “keep our eyes on the prize” and focus on the good that we want to achieve. I also think that this makes us work harder to achieve those things. It’s almost like a reward system to keep us on the straight and narrow.
Your bucket list can be short or long. It can be silly or serious. Whatever gets you working toward a goal and helps you achieve the important things that are in your life. Life sometimes gets too serious and we don’t enjoy it. We get so overwhelmed by working and making money that we don’t enjoy life and do the things that are important to us.
I also think that bucket lists are important because it can bring people together. Whether you make a bucket list that you do all yourself, or if you do it with friends, family, or your significant other, it will bring people together. It gives you a sense of adventure and thrill to your life and also to the people that you choose to do it with. Just think of all the memories that you will be making.
Do you need some ideas? Well it can be anything. Some examples are: flying in a hot air balloon, graduating college, getting your dream job, getting a dream car, running a marathon, going skydiving, going to a certain country, going to all of the 50 states, learning a new language, swimming with dolphins, going to see your favorite musicals, learning to ice skate, going to the summer or winter Olympics, volunteering somewhere that means a lot to you, trying crazy foods, adopting an animal, it can literally be anything. Just make sure it is special to you and makes you want to strive and achieve it.
Having a bucket list is one of the best things that you can do. Not only does it make you a harder worker, but it also helps you achieve the things that make you happy in life. Those two things are two of the most important things in this world. So, get to work on that bucket list and start crossing them off slowly, including all the important things and important people that are in your life!
