Bucket lists have become popular ever since the movie, The Bucket List. Although, before that I think we all had ideas of things we wanted to try, do, or accomplish.
Our topic this month is if you have (or even if you don't have) a bucket list, what top priority thing(s) do you want to accomplish? I’ve always had a list of things I wanted to do. When I accomplish one, inevitably I add one or two more things. I’m not sure I prioritize them. It’s kind of what opportunities or motivation shows up.
I wanted to write. I’ve always written scenes and short stories, but I wanted to really write a book. I put it off until my second bout with cancer and I said to myself – someone’s trying to tell you something. Duh! What’s something you keep meaning to do, but put off? So I bought a computer and wrote my first story. And I’ve been writing ever since. I made it to the Amazon River in Brazil and stayed in a tree house – now I’d like to visit the Great Wall of China.
So my top priorities would be to become a better writer. I also want to become a better watercolor painter. (I took that up and off my bucket list three years ago). I want to trace my family roots as far back as possible. (I started studying genealogy two years ago.)
China’s up there of course. I’d also like to find more ways to give back to my community. I do volunteer work and donate to my favorite organizations, but I feel there are other ways I might be able to help. And I can give back to the writing community that’s helped me so much.
What's on your bucket list? And what are your priorities?
I’m looking forward to hearing what others have as top priorities in their lives. I’m off to start checking them out with a visit to Skye Taylor. Here’s the list of everyone else who’s going to share their bucket lists. Please drop by and read their thoughts.
