At 36 years old, my original bucket list was already complete.
I only had three things on there:
1. Graduate college
2. Get married
3. Have children
That was all I ever really wanted and needed in this life. Pretty simple. Sort of. Not that I don't have any other dreams. I'm driven enough to work hard and see things through. It's just that I am pretty content. I love all kinds of things and want to do many things, but none of it seems dire or desperate if it doesn't happen.
I have traveled. I got tattoos. I have hilarious stories from my youth. I have donated and volunteered and surfed (twice), bought a house, taught Sunday School, was asked out by a famous ball player and blah blah blah...
So while my bucket list now consists of hopefully seeing and doing all of the wonderful things that come from numbers 2 and 3 above (like celebrating anniversaries and watching my kids get trophies, school awards, travel, make friends, and also graduate college, get married and have kids), I have had a few simple desires come up recently that I think would be really neat if I could do them this year.
1. Go on a ride along with a police officer.
2. Get a motorcycle license. Not for David's Ducati, but so I can ride my dad's moped.
3. Run a 5K this year. (This one will be tough...I usually only run if I'm being chased.)
What's on your bucket list?
