Bucket Lists

Whether you hope to die age 100 with a cup of tea in your hand and a cat on your lap, or die age 50 on the greatest adventure of your life through the North Pole, then this is a post for you.

A few years ago I set myself a task to at least entertain the idea that I had a future, and that it could possibly be filled with some fun.

I dared myself to dream. And it helped! I never realised that I do actually have a long list of things I'd like to do before I die. I spent 2 hours writing up this list. And it really REALLY helped to lift my mood.

Do you have a Bucket List? If you don't, would you like one?
