The Bucket List...

Do you know what a "Bucket List" is? According to Merriam-Webster, a Bucket List is "a list of things that one has not done before but wants to do before dying."

Does it seem a little morbid? It shouldn't be... at least, I don't think so. A "Bucket List" is meant to be something that brings fulfillment to one's life, even if it's a short-lived venture.

For example, a high school friend of mine recently posted one of his Bucket List items (see video posted below) to his Facebook page for all the world to see. It made me smile and also made me think about my own Bucket List. Did I even have one?!

I think I do. I think we all do. We all have things that we'd like to do, to accomplish, to experience at some point in our lives. Think about what you've already done - were any of those things on your list?

So what is on my Bucket List? I'm not sure. As a mom, I'm great at making lists. I can make a list that highlights, in detail, the next 745 things that need to be done in the next 45 minutes of my life. Would any of those things be Bucket List worthy?

Probably not.

But they are some of the most important parts of my life. The daily smiles, laughs, temper tantrums (yes, even those) - all of that makes up the one piece of my "would-be" Bucket List that I'm living in right now; parenthood.

So maybe I don't have an official Bucket List these days - and maybe you don't either - but that's okay. Pieces of what you choose to do today, or tomorrow, are part of your Bucket List - whether you know it or not.

But just in case you're itchin' to make your own Bucket List, click HERE for all the steps needed to create your own. (Yes, it is a list on how to make a list - pretty amazing!)

And, if you're wondering how my friend was able to cross "Time with a frisbee catching dog" off of his list, check out his Craigslist ad below!

Wanted: Time with a frisbee catching dog

I have a simple bucket list item that I'm trying to cross off--I'd like to play frisbee with a dog. If you have or know of someone with a dog that can catch and bring back a frisbee, I'd really appreciate you helping me make it happen!

I'm a 31 year old guy hoping to get the most out of life, and I'm here looking for help :)

Thanks so much!
